EGU statement on scientific presentations at its General Assembly

The General Assembly of EGU facilitates presentation and discussion of scientific results in the form of poster, oral, and PICO presentations. Over the last years, two-thirds of the abstracts were presented as a poster and one-third as oral or PICO. The EGU stresses that all scientific presentations at its General Assembly have equal importance, independent of format. There is no distinction regarding the standing, quality or prestige of oral, poster, or PICO presentations. Our different presentation formats offer different ways to present research and obtain feedback. In all cases, a presenter is expected to deliver the main message of the research orally.
