The Japanese Geophysical Union (JpGU) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) are pleased to announce that as a part of our partnership, we are moving forward with an exciting multi-year meeting collaboration.
Beginning in 2016, AGU and JpGU will hold jointly sponsored sessions at each society’s meeting. Session proposals for the jointly sponsored sessions at the JpGU 2016 meeting will be accepted beginning 1 September 2015. For ease of submission, in instances where AGU and JpGU colleagues are collaborating on a session proposal, we suggest that the JpGU member should submit the proposals via the JpGU website. When abstract submission begins in January 2016, both AGU and JpGU members will be able to submit abstracts.
In May 2017, JpGU and AGU will hold the first joint meeting of the two societies covering all areas of the Earth and space sciences as well as many sessions for inter- and transdisciplinary scientists. The meeting will be held in Japan, and is forecast to have 7,000-9,000 scientists from around the globe. Student travel funding will be available for these meetings.
