During the conference, side meetings (splinter meetings) organized by on-site participants can be reserved for up to two successive time blocks in specific rooms.

Non-commercial splinter meetings are organized by individuals or organizations that are not primarily intended for, or directed towards, commercial advantage or monetary compensation (e.g. research and innovation project meetings). Commercial splinter meetings are those related to activities of commerce, selling services, promoting commercial products, or for-profit businesses (e.g. editorial board meetings).

Non-commercial splinter meetings can be reserved free of charge in the rooms listed below. Commercial meetings can be requested in these rooms for €250 for smaller enterprises (up to 10 full-time employees) or €500 for larger enterprises (more than 10 full-time employees) per time block but from 11 March 2024 onwards based on room availability.

The splinter meeting request form is already closed. Please check with our on-site conference staff at the EGU Information desk for any room vacancies.
