      <strong>Free University Berlin</strong> in <strong>Berlin,
        Germany</strong> from <strong>9 - 13 September 2019</strong>.
      The congress will have the theme <strong>“Rocking Earth’s Future”</strong>.

        2018.</strong></p>
    <p>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.</p>
    <p>The 5th YES Congress 2019 will be centered around six large
      topical areas:</p>
    <ul>
      <li>Ashes to Ashes - Understanding Earth Processes</li>
      <li>Unboxing Earth - Interdisciplinary Problem Solving</li>
      <li>Heritage Earth - Sustainable Resource Management</li>
      <li>Society at Risk - Impacting Earth Phenomena</li>
      <li>Brave New World - Advanced Technologies in Earth Sciences</li>
      <li>Beyond Printing - Communicating Science</li>
    </ul>
    <p>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!</p>
    <p>The lead convener in each session proposal has to be an early
      career scientist!</p>
