The scientific program
The 2011 Scientific Program of IUGG includes three categories of symposia and a number of workshops on a wide range of geophysical themes. These include:
Union Symposia which cover a wide range of themes of concern to the eight Associations. Invited speakers feature in these Symposia, supported by poster presentations selected by the convenors from those submitted. Several of the Union Symposia are expanded or followed in greater depth in Joint Symposia or in Association Symposia.
Joint Association Symposia with keynote speakers and scientists whose presentations (which consist of oral and poster presentations) are accepted by the session convenors.
The themes have been devised by at least two Associations, one of which is the lead Association. Some Joint Symposia themes are developed further separately in Association Symposia and Workshops.
Association Symposia with keynote speakers and scientists whose presentations (which consist of oral and poster presentations) are accepted by the session convenors.
The Scientific Program will run from Tuesday 28 June until Thursday 7 July. Each day will consist of four 90 minute sessions and one poster session (excluding the first Tuesday and the second Thursday). The Tuesday afternoon session of the first week will be the opening ceremony, the Thursday afternoon session of the second week is the closing ceremony, three morning sessions will have plenary presentations.
