IUGG General Assembly 2023 - Announcement

Sent by Stefania Sparnocchia, IAPSO Secretary General

20 January, 2023


The 28th IUGG General Assembly (IUGG 2023) will be held from 11 to 20 July 2023 at the CityCube in Berlin, Germany.

This General Assembly is a special opportunity for participants from around the world to come together and discuss the full range of geodetic and geophysical themes, and further enhance the important interdisciplinary collaboration for a better understanding of our Earth System.

IUGG 2023 will provide a platform for personal meetings, exchange of ideas and developing new concepts for international science collaboration, all of which have suffered a setback during this pandemic crisis. IUGG 2023 will help to create a new spirit to address pressing large societal challenges such as global environmental change and natural hazards and to stimulate novel geoscience research.


Abstract submission and Travel grant applications are open until 14 February 2023.


Early-bird registration will close on 28 April 2023.
