Aims & scope
The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
Applications open for the EGU General Assembly Mentoring Programme
For the second year in a row, the EGU is offering a mentoring programme for novice conference attendees, students, and early career scientists at its annual General Assembly. The programme aims to facilitate new connections that may lead to long-term professional relationships within the Earth, planetary, and space science communities. It promises to be a rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors, so do consider signing up (deadline: 31 January 2018).

POLAR2018 is a joint event from the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR and the International Arctic Science Committee IASC. The SCAR meetings, the ASSW and the Open Science Conference will be hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL under the patronage of the Swiss Committee on Polar and High Altitude Research. The WSL-Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF is organising POLAR2018, which will take place in Davos, Switzerland from 15 - 26 June 2018.
We are pleased to invite you to INDOOR AIR 2018, the next edition of the flagship conference of the International Society for Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), hosted by Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, USA, on July 22 to 27, 2018.
Join us in Philadelphia to meet with the international indoor air and climate community in an exciting week of networking, exchange of ideas, and discussion of the latest indoor air science.
INDOOR AIR 2018 will feature a quality program including distinguished plenary speakers, platform and poster presentations of accepted papers, social activities to foster networking and community, and the second offering of the ISIAQ summer school for students and post-docs.
Please see our general conference overview for more information.

On behalf of the conference organizers, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 10th International Aerosol Conference (IAC 2018) to be held September 2-7, 2018 at the America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. As you may know the IAC is held once in four years, and rotates between Asia, Europe and America – hence we will be hosting this in the USA after 12 years. The IAC attracts attendees from all over the world. We expect the conference to provide an outstanding venue for sharing our latest aerosol science and technology research and for networking and re-connecting with colleagues.
The 2018 IAC provides one more day of scientific sessions than our regular AAAR conferences:
The Conference Committee’s Technical Program co-chairs Drs. C.Y. Wu (University of Florida) and Brent Williams (Washington University in St. Louis) are diligently working to develop the program.
Please note that the Call for Abstracts is now open (aaarabstracts.com/2018IAC/) and that the deadline for submissions is February 1, 2018.
This year we will have some additional highlights:
Please access the website to garner more details – and stay updated on all exciting things being planned: www.2018iac.org
We are looking forward to an outstanding conference at a great location that you certainly don’t want to miss. A gentle reminder to be aware of the earlier deadlines, so prepare your Abstracts and start submitting them!
2018 Conference Chair
The conference theme is “Atmospheric Chemistry: From Molecules to Global Impacts” and will include plenary sessions on Atmospheric Chemistry as it pertains to Human Activities, Ecosystems, Climate/Weather, Fundamental Understanding, and Future Challenges.
