The Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU) 2022 Meeting will be held in a hybrid format with both on-site (Makuhari Messe, Chiba, Japan) and online sessions.
The period of the meeting will be expanded from the previously announced period as follows.

During the hybrid phase, oral sessions will be held both onsite and online via Zoom live webcast. In addition, on-site poster presentations (without online webcast) will also be held. In the online poster sessions phase, online poster presentations will be conducted utilizing online video conferencing system (such as Zoom breakout rooms) for posters presentations and discussion.

Oral presentations will be given live via Zoom either locally or online. Presenters are free to choose both on-site or online presentation. The chairpersons and conveners do not have to be present at the site.

All poster presentations will be posted online. In addition, there will be an opportunity to make a presentation at the on-site venue during the hybrid phase or during the core time within the online poster presentation phase.

We will make utmost efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection at the local site during the hybrid phase. In addition to working with the venue to ensure thorough disinfection and ventilation, we ask for the cooperation of all onsite participants at the venue as follows.

We will inform you of the details as soon as they are decided. Please note that depending on the future spread of COVID-19 infection, it is possible that we may move to a completely online format.

At this time, we are only providing a general outline of the meeting format, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are working hard to make the meeting safer, more stable, and more fulfilling, and we ask for your understanding and cooperation.
