From December 11th to 15th, 2023, the American Geophysical Union (AGU)’s annual meeting was held in San Francisco. More than twenty thousand attendees from over 100 countries gathered in the Moscone Center which hosted the highly anticipated APEC meeting last month. This was the largest offline annual meeting organized by AGU since 2019.
The Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ITPCAS), set up its booth at the Exhibition Hall. Besides introducing the basic information of ITPCAS, the centers and teams, as well as research highlights and processes, we also emphasized on enrollment advertisement and recrement. It was our second time show and to promote our institute in AGU’s Fall meeting which provided us a great opportunity for face-to-face communications and interactions with international fellows that we always believe important for scientific research, especially in the field of basic science. Taking international cooperation as our top priority, we will keep putting efforts to rise the visibility ITPCAS to the world.
Meanwhile, faculty, postdocs, and students from ITPCAS presented their research in multiple formats throughout the week.
AGU is one of the biggest festivals for us as the largest international Earth sciences meeting in the world. Scientists, educators, policymakers, journalists and communicators attend AGU23 to better understand our planet and environment, opening pathways to discovery, opening greater awareness to address climate change, opening greater collaborations to lead to solutions and opening the fields and professions of science to a whole new age of justice equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging.
