Every year scientists from all over the world gather in Vienna to meet at the European Geosciences Union's (EGU) General Assembly. In 2017 this conference will be held from 23-28th April, and several CEED members are involved in convening various exciting sessions throughout the week, listed below.

Many solar system researchers met at the IAU Commission F1 Meteoroids 2016 at ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, Netherlands and Cometary Science After Rosetta Meeting 2016 at the Royal Society, London, England, both held in Jun 2016. CEED postdoc Aswin Sekhar was one of the participants for both conferences and presented the latest results representing the CEED Earth & Beyond Team. The primary aims of both these meetings were to enhance the studies of solar system small bodies and bring together researchers from different fields of astrophysics and geophysics communities to extend further collaborations.
Geoscientists with a wide range of expertise, and from across Europe recently met in Heraklion, Crete (2 - 4 Mar. 2016). CEED research associate Dr Adriano Mazzini was among them. The scientists discussed future collaborations to understand how fluids circulating in large fractures within the Earth's crust controls how faults move - through slow creeping processes or by sudden rupturing and earthquakes. The meeting was organized in the framework of 'FLOWS', a European research network funded through the Cooperation of Science and Technology (COST) program.
