Join us at a meeting

AGU meetings foster learning and collaboration, and promote topics that enhance perspectives across Earth and space science.


AGU’s scientific meetings provide a platform for AGU’s community of Earth and space scientists and others outside our sciences to discover and advance diverse, relevant scientific research, colleagues and groups, resources and tools, and leaders in other fields.

Our meetings range from AGU’s annual Fall Meeting – one of the world’s largest scientific meetings with 24,000 attendees – to the more in-depth and topically focused Chapman Conferences with 100 – 200 attendees. They allow scientists and students to forge new connections across and within disciplines and further their careers. Our forums promote research across disciplines and enable attendees to build skills in other areas, such as science communication.

As a convener, AGU can help accelerate the pace of discovery and the dissemination of knowledge, ensuring that decision makers and the media learn about relevant science quickly, and that our sciences have the greatest possible impact on society.

Chapman        Conferences

AGU Chapman Conferences are small, topical meetings designed to permit in-depth exploration of specialized subjects in a manner not possible at large meetings.
