2021 Fall Meeting

The 2021 AGU Fall Meeting will take place in person in New Orleans, LA and online everywhere between Dec. 13 – 17. For full meeting information, please visit

Abstract submissions are now closed. 

Covid-19 update (August 11, 2021):

Some notes from our EPSP Program Committee Chair, Marisa Palucis: 

This year the format of the Fall Meeting, which is taking place from 13 - 17 December, is hybrid - so the meeting is being designed for both in-person (New Orleans, LA) and virtual participation (online from anywhere). Oral sessions can be a mix of in-person and virtual and will be 75 min long, allowing for short talks (~3 mins) from presenters, followed by lively discussions. Oral presenters will also post pre-recorded 15 min talks prior to the start of the meeting. Poster presenters will be able to present their poster either virtually or in-person or both. As such, when you submit your abstract, you can indicate if you are prepared to only present virtually or if you are comfortable and have no preference presenting either virtually or in-person.

Abstract guidelines can be found here.

Two other noteworthy changes are also occurring this year:

  1. AGU has revised its first author policy for #AGU21. A first author can now submit two contributed abstracts (i.e., non-invited abstracts) as long as the second abstract is in a different section from the first abstract. Invited authors can submit up to two invited abstracts to any section plus one contributed abstract to a different section.
  2. If you are a graduate student or Early Career session convener, you will be allowed to present within your oral session.

More details on session convener guidelines can be found here.

And general FAQs about the scientific program can be found here.
