International Geoscience Games Day 2019 at #EGU19 @EuroGeosciences

Wednesday 10th of April will be the 2019 International Games Day (as we’re calling it, anyway) at the General Assembly of the European Geoscience Union, to be held in Vienna, Austria.

The schedule includes a full scientific programme, starting with the poster session at 2pm in Hall X4, and then the oral presentations in Room L8 at 4.15pm. Straight afterwards we head to Foyer D for the Geoscience Games Night.
