What's on the booth
We can't wait for this year's American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall meeting to start and we are looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans. Visit Elsevier on booth 431, where you can…
- Discover our range of Earth and Planetary journals
- Receive a 30% discount on displayed books and enter our book-a-day giveaway
- Plus stay awhile and meet our publishing team and book authors, who can help you navigate the world of academic publishing
Alongside our presence in the exhibition hall, you'll find Elsevier across the AGU meeting with events and sponsorships.
- Water Security is sponsoring the AGU session: "Pursuing Water Security in Socio-Hydrological Systems"
Earth Science Women's Network
- Earth Science Women's Network Annual Networking Event
Monday 11th December 6 – 9 PM, The Rusty Nail , 1102 Constance St.
ESWN's signature annual event will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues and make new friends during the first day of the sessions! FREE, all are welcome, appetizers and cash bar.
- AGU Networking Reception for Early Career Female Scientists and Students
Tuesday 12th December 6:15 – 8 PM, Hilton Riverside, 1st Floor, Grand Ballroom – Suite CD
Network with your peers at this event made especially for early career female scientists and students. Not-so-early-career women are also welcome! ESWN & AGU Sponsored Workshops
- Navigating the NSF System
Wednesday 13th December 9 AM – 12 PM, MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
This workshop is open to all AGU Fall Meeting attendees and will be particularly helpful to graduate students, post-docs, researchers, and tenure-track faculty thinking about applying for NSF funding. Critique sample text from past NSF proposals, meet in groups with program officers to know what they are looking for, and learn how to ask the right questions, give the right answers, and get funded.
- Strategies for Attracting and Advancing a Diverse Geoscience Workforce
Wednesday 13th December 2 – 4 PM, MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
The goals of this workshop are to (1) identify elements from successful programs for attracting and advancing historically underrepresented Earth scientists at multiple career stages and (2) identify strategies that AGU and its members can enact to broaden the participation of a diverse membership and geoscience workforce. A panel presentation will be followed by small breakout roundtable discussions centred on topics related to various career stages and professional tracks of interest.
- Opportunities Beyond Academia
Wednesday 13th December 4 – 6 PM MCCNO, Third Floor, Room 338-339
Thinking about a career outside of academia? It can often be difficult to get help finding a job in a non-profit or government agency, within industry, or as a consultant. A panel of scientists with experience outside of academia will share their "lessons learned" and answer your questions about how to find and apply for jobs in policy, federal research labs, state agencies, NGOs, industry, and private enterprise.
Safe journey to all those traveling to the year's meeting, we hope you have an enjoyable and productive conference.
