Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

The EGU General Assembly 2019, taking place in Vienna (Austria) on 7–12 April 2019, 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 10 January 2019 or, for those applying for EGU Roland Schlich travel support, 1 December 2018. Only EGU members will be able to submit abstracts to the 2019 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. You may submit the text of your contribution as plain text, LaTeX, or MS Word content. An abstract processing charge (APC) of €40.00 gross will be levied.

Detailed information on how to submit an abstract can be found at:

The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 10 January 2019, 13:00 CET. If you would like to apply for a Roland Schlich travel support, please submit no later than 1 December 2018. 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 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 EOS abstract (regular or solicited). Participants can be co-authors on additional abstracts in 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 2019 EGU membership for first authors
Only 2019 EGU members can submit an abstract as first author for the 2019 General Assembly. Acquiring your EGU membership is possible through the abstract submission form or beforehand at: All EGU members benefit from substantially reduced registration rates to the meeting.

(4) Late abstracts
Abstracts sent to conveners after 10 January 2019 for submission on your behalf have the strict deadline of 18 January 2019, 13:00 CET. These late submissions require final approval by the programme committee and will be invoiced with €80.00 gross.

(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 at your earliest convenience. Without early withdrawal, abstracts not presented at the conference are identified as no-shows and their PDF file will be removed from the conference programme. Such contributions are clearly marked in the online programme and listed as no-shows.
