11 July 2023 - 20 July 2023


The 28th IUGG General Assembly will be held 11-20 July 2023 at the Messe Berlin – City Cube, Berlin, Germany. This is an opportunity for participants from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures, and a wide variety of themed sessions.

IUGG foresees to launch a new session format, called “Big Themes.” In a condensed and interesting format, the IUGG bureau plans several themes to be covered with a few stimulus introductions, a moderated panel discussion and an extended exchange within the plenary. Each session is planned for 90 minutes. Identified  “Big Themes to date:

  • Open Science, Open Data, Open Software
  • ECS Early Career Scientists – Needs, Wishes and Demands
  • Contributions to Disaster Risk Reduction (including Sendai)
  • Contributions to International Frameworks (e.g. IPCC, Paris Agreement, SDGs)
