Abstract submission for AGU’s 2nd Annual Science Policy Conference is now open! This year the conference will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from Monday, 24 June to Wednesday, 26 June 2013 in Washington, D.C. Join hundreds of Earth and space scientists, students, policymakers, and industry professionals as they come together to discuss key Earth and space science topics that address challenges to our environment, economy, public safety, and national security. This meeting will focus specifically on the science that helps inform policymakers’ decisions related to climate change, oceans, energy, hazards, technology and infrastructure, and the Arctic.
In addition to plenary talks and panelist discussions, AGU will host a poster session to correspond with thesix themes of the conference. Posters should connect science and policy within these conference themes. To provide better access to this important content, authors will have the option to display posters electronically on the conference website through AGU’s interactive ePoster technology.
