<https://yesdeutschland.weebly.com/>* is pleased to announce the *5th 
International YES Congress 2019* 
<https://yesdeutschland.weebly.com/yes-congress-2019.html> to be held at

*The Call for Sessions is now open until 30 September 2018.*

The current and future grand challenges of global change are manifold 
and include rapid population growth, increasing urbanization, global 
warming, contamination of water and soil, the continuing transition of 
our economy to post-industrialism and related increases in 
vulnerabilities. For early career Earth Science researchers the task is 
to ensure that humanity is prepared to tackle all these challenges in a 
smart and sustainable way. This requires hard facts, reproducible and 
transparent science and a sound commitment.

The 5th YES Congress 2019 will be centered around six large topical areas:

  * Ashes to Ashes - Understanding Earth Processes
  * Unboxing Earth - Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
  * Heritage Earth - Sustainable Resource Management
  * Society at Risk - Impacting Earth Phenomena
  * Brave New World - Advanced Technologies in Earth Sciences
  * Beyond Printing - Communicating Science

We are now inviting session proposals that fit within the above themes. 
Session formats can be anything from traditional oral presentations and 
poster presentations, to roundtable discussions, panel discussions, 
interactive Q&A sessions, open discussion rounds, science slams, 
barcamps, PICO, field trips, elevator pitches or others. Be creative!

The lead convener in each session proposal has to be an early career 

Read the detailed call for sessions on the congress website (

out how to submit your session proposal. For questions please contact
