The EGU 2018 general assembly was held April 08-13, 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

Again, the joint IODP/ECORD-ICDP booth was a great success. It served as meeting point for the scientific drilling community and attracted interested scientists from all over the world.

The ICDP-IODP/ECORD Town Hall Meeting took place on Tuesday, April 11, 19:00–20:00 pm and was attended by international scientists and engineers with an interest in Scientific Drilling. The Townhall meeting was the opportunity to share ICDP views on exciting challenges to take up for a better understanding of the Earth system and its changing environment and to network with colleagues.

The joint session "Achievements and perspectives in scientific ocean and continental drilling", (co-sponsored by JpGU) was held on Thursday, April 12 with orals on Thursday morning and the poster session in the afternoon.
