The symposium poster boards are 4 by 8 feet (horizontal, landscape orientation). We suggest 4 by 6 feet posters (AGU size), but they can be as large as the 4 by 8 feet.

Application deadline is 12 April 2018. We have extended the 'Early bird' registration until 22 April 2018. If you have problems submitting your abstract before the deadline please contact the IGS office <>

We will be able to fund airfare and registration for a limited number of early-career researchers (graduate students, postdocs, recent hires in permanent positions). Awards of full or partial scholarships will be given on a competitive basis. We are especially interested in providing support to individuals from under-represented populations in the earth sciences, including but not limited to diverse cultural, gender, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
