#3. Message from the 2020 Program Committee Co-chairs
Dear JpGU and AGU members,
We would be grateful if you could start now thinking of sessions for
the JpGU-AGU Joint Meeting 2020 that will take place May 24-28 at the
Makuhari Messe (Chiba Prefecture: https://www.m-messe.co.jp/en/), Japan.
We are excited about the JpGU-AGU joint organization and hope you are
too. We will have a call for session from September 2. We would like
to have many sessions proposed by the next generation of scientists
(students and early-to-mid career members) from both of our societies.
In addition, we strongly encourage session proposals from female
members so to get their perspectives.
Our joint program theme is “For a Borderless World of Geoscience”.
We are inspired by the words of Louis Pasteur “Science knows no
country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch
which illuminates the world”. Our JpGU-AGU Joint Meeting 2020 wishes
to hear about your insights and discoveries.
By specifically seeking to diversify the voices of the JpGU-AGU Joint
Meeting 2020, we wish to add vitality and new blood to our science
discussions. If you have not proposed a session before, then please
take this opportunity to do so.
We look forward to seeing you at the JpGU-AGU Joint meeting 2020 in
Makuhari next May.
Best regards and wishes,
Fumio Inagaki and William McDonough
JpGU-AGU Joint Meeting 2020 Program Committee Co-chairs
