The EGU General Assembly 2020, taking place in Vienna (Austria) on 3–8 May 2020, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2020, 13:00 CET or, for those applying for EGU Roland Schlich travel support, 1 December 2019, 13:00 CET. Only 2020 EGU members will be able to submit abstracts to the 2020 meeting and, with a few exceptions outlined below, only one abstract as first author will be permitted.

You are kindly invited to find a session for your abstract at:

(1) How to submit your abstract
Each session shows the abstract submission link. Using this link, you are asked to log in to the Copernicus Office Meeting Organizer with your Copernicus Office user ID. An abstract processing charge (APC) of €40.00 gross will be levied.Detailed information on how to submit an abstract can be found at: deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 15 January 2020, 13:00 CET. 

If you would like to apply for a Roland Schlich travel support, please submit no later than 1 December 2019, 13:00 CET. Details can be found at:

(2) One-abstract rule
Authors are allowed as first author to submit either one regular abstract plus one abstract solicited by a convener, or two solicited abstracts. A second regular abstract can be submitted to sessions led by the Educational and Outreach Sessions (EOS) programme group (maximum number of abstracts, including solicited abstracts, remains two). Possible submissions for first authors are: 1 regular + 1 solicited abstract; or 2 solicited abstracts; or 1 regular or solicited abstract + 1 regular or solicited abstract submitted to EOS-led sessions. Participants can be co-authors on additional abstracts on which they are not first author. Submission of solicited presentations requires a transaction number (TAN) that can be obtained from the convener of the respective session.

(3) Required 2020 EGU membership for first authors
Only 2020 EGU members can submit an abstract as first author to the 2020 General Assembly. Please renew your EGU membership directly through the abstract submission form or beforehand at: In the latter case, please ensure to use identical user accounts for the membership application as well as for the abstract submission. EGU members get a substantial reduction on the registration fee to the General Assembly.

(4) Late abstracts
Abstracts sent to conveners after 15 January 2020 for submission on your behalf need to reach conveners well in advance (22 January as a guideline) of their strict upload deadline of 24 January 2020, 13:00 CET.

(5) Abstract-presentation obligation
The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors. If this is not possible, please withdraw your abstract as early as possible. Without early withdrawal, abstracts not presented at the conference are identified as no-shows. Such contributions are clearly marked in the online programme and listed as no-shows. The corresponding HTML/PDF abstract will no longer be available.
