Access our virtual conference centre

Our virtual conference centre is accessible for all attendees with a completed registration for vEGU21. It links all sessions, side events, exhibitor portals, and allows you to network. It is optimized for Chrome/Edge browsers, but works fine on Firefox and Safari. If anything goes wrong, please try first to hard refresh the page (e.g. Ctrl+F5 on Windows), not only a simple refresh. JavaScript and style sheet files are often cached in your browser. Click on the welcome portal below and please enjoy vEGU21 to the fullest. Thank you very much.

What's on in week 1 and how can I access?

Engage in the sessions linked from the virtual conference centre as well as from the conference programme. 15 minutes prior to session start, the session lists in the programme will show buttons "Enter live session".

#vEGU21: Welcome to the EGU General Assembly!

Upload your vPICO live presentation file

Live 2-minute vPICO talks are based on a single slide in the file formats *.png or *.jpg with a resolution of 150 dpi. Solicited 5-minute or 10-minute presentations require a presentation in the formats *.pdf, *.ppt/pptx, or *.pps/ppsx. In either case vPICO live presentation files must be uploaded at least 24 hours prior to your session's start. Please see our upload recipe and find more information in the presenter guidelines.

Upload your display material files & links

Take your live presentation further by taking advantage of the opportunity to upload display materials to accompany your abstract to be watched and commented by registered conference attendees during the 2-month period surrounding vEGU21. The upload is now open, and adjustments can be made at any time until 31 May. Please see our upload recipe and find more information in the presenter guidelines.

Start the vEGU21 networking already now

Our vEGU21 Networker allows you to update your profile, decide about information you aim to share with your colleagues, connect to colleagues through their email address, watch the profiles of your colleagues, and start spontaneous text chats once they are online. Start now by checking your profile and then build your network. Further information is given on the GeoLog post on the vEGU21 Profile and the conference Networker.

For the full functionality of our platform (particularly the push notifications connected to the vEGU21 Networker and the Virtual Handshake) we recommend that all attendees use Chrome or Edge internet browsers. If you do not want to use these platforms you will still be able to participate in the General Assembly, but you will have more limited functionality of some of our networking tools.
