2023 Fall Meeting

The 2023 Fall Meeting will return to the Moscone Center in San Francisco (and online everywhere) on December 11 - 15. 

EPSP Events

In addition to all our EPSP scientific sessions, we have several EPSP events that we hope to see you at. These include:

  • Monday, Dec. 11: EPSP Student and Early Career Celebration (6:30 - 8:00 PM, Marriott, Walnut Room, B2 Level)

    • This is a ticketed event and is a chance for early career folks to mingle with current past EPSP award winners in a casual atmosphere. 

  • Tuesday, Dec. 12: EPSP Reception and Section Gathering (6:30 - 8:00 PM, Marriott Salon 4-6, Lower B2 Level)

    • Our reception and section gathering is free this year (thanks to AGU Headquarters for helping to make this happen!) Please join us for light refreshments, discussion with colleagues and some EPSP business announcements.

  • Thursday, Dec. 14: Sharp Lecture and EPSP Award Ceremony (4:00 - 5:30 PM, Moscone West, Room 2022 - 2024)

    • Please help us celebrate our 2023 EPSP Award winners. This year we’re honored to present Doug Burbank with the G.K. Gilbert Award winner, Enrica Viparelli with the Marguerite T. Williams Award and Hongbo Ma with the Luna B. Leopold Award. Hongo Ma will also present the Sharp Lecture, the title of his talk is “Follow the rhythm of a river as it dances: leveraging silt-rich river systems as the fast-play for process-based insights of river-climate-human interactions.”

  • Thursday, Dec. 14: Informal early career social hour (7:30 - ???)

    • Each year our EPSP student committee hosts an informal and unofficial social hour one evening during AGU. This year the social hour will return to Southern Pacific Brewing in the Mission District of San Francisco. If you’re interested in joining, a group of students will leave from Moscone West at 6:45 PM to travel together, or feel free to travel on your own and meet us at the venue. Note that entrance is only admitted to those 21 and older. A US- or foreign-government issued ID (identification card accepted but passports recommended) is required for entry. 

  • Saturday, Dec. 16: Gilbert Club (UC Berkeley)

    • While not an official EPSP event, Gilbert Club is returning to an in-person meeting this year. This year’s Gilbert’s Club will feature science talks from Jérôme Lavé, Marisa Palucis, and Jim Pizzuto, as well as pop-ups and announcements from NSF program managers and JGR-Earth Surface editors. If possible, register by December 4More information on this year’s event is available here.
