The 2018 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting will be the first ever AGU conference at which there are sessions specifically listed for the new “GeoHealth” section. To encourage participation in these sessions, AGU has made the following two provisions:
- An abstract submitted to a GeoHealth section does not count against the one abstract per lead author limit. So you can submit to a GeoHealth session and still submit another abstract to a different session.
- Recognizing that many relevant GeoHealth speakers are not AGU members, AGU is waiving the membership requirement for submitting to GeoHealth sessions. This is being done in two ways: (a) through reciprocity agreements with several major professional societies, including the American Public Health Association, International Society of Exposure Science, and International Society of Environmental Epidemiology, such that their members can submit abstracts directly to the AGU Fall Meeting; and (b) by direct request from GeoHealth session Chairs on behalf of speakers submitting to their session.
Abstracts for all AGU sessions, including GeoHealth, can be submitted for oral and poster presentations until August 1, 2018. Please review the full list of GeoHealth sessions that are accepting abstracts.
For more information, please contact Ben Zaitchik, Secretary of the AGU GeoHealth Section.
