JpGU–AGU Joint Meeting 2020

This event will be held online due to the Novel Coronavirus situation. More information about the event and means of participation will follow in due course at the event website.

The Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU) and American Geophysical Union (AGU) will host the JpGU–AGU Joint Meeting 2020 to highlight the 30th anniversary of JpGU and follow on from AGU's centennial celebration. The Joint Meeting will keep its befitting theme: 'For a Borderless World of Geoscience', and will also serve as the foundation for the next five years to a decadal span.

The meeting provides an indispensable opportunity for participants from the fields of Earth and planetary science to interact. The annual survey indicates that the participants would like to see a wider range of session programs, including some open to the public, and expansion of English-language sessions.

Session Formats & Language

  • Two formats are available for presentations: oral and/or poster.
  • Session language is either English and/or Japanese.
Rorie Edmunds, WDS Acting Executive Director, will attend the JpGU–AGU Joint Meeting 2020, and will present on WDS and the CoreTrustSeal in the session 'Open Science in Progress: Data Sharing, e-Infrastructure, and Transparency in International Contexts'.
