EGU2012 Webstreaming

Journalists/freelance writers: if you wish to ask questions during press conferences, you can do so via Skype. In advance of the event of interest, add to your Skype contacts and indicate your name and professional affiliation on your contact request message. During each press conference, you can use Skype’s text chat feature to ask questions. A member of the EGU press office will monitor the chat line and read your questions to the speakers. Please indicate who your question is for when asking.

Selected sessions as well as all press conferences during the General Assembly 2012 will be live-streamed and are also available on demand after the conference. Below you find the overall webstreaming programme. Once the individual sessions start, a link opening the respective stream will appear:
