Press Room Sessions

At EGU 2005, we will organize a series of sessions on topics of special interest for the press and the media. These topics will vary from the European Huygens mission to Titan, to the Sumatra earthquake and Indian Ocean tsunami, climate change, to Geohazards, etc. For each session, we will invite two to four scientists to the press room to give short presentations of their work and discussions with the press. Afterwards, there will be ample opportunity for private interviews in adjacent rooms.

The programme for the press room sessions is subject to change as topics may be added, or deleted. The definitive programme will be published here a few days before the start of the assembly.

So far, we planned the following sessions. This page will be regularly updated. See also "Media Tips".
