IUGG General Assemblies

Each National Committee for Geodesy and Geophysics, which functions as a non-governmental entity in its relations with IUGG, is represented at General Assemblies of the Union by Delegates appointed by its Adhering Body. During these assemblies, policies governing the Union are agreed on, research programmes requiring international participation are formulated and coordinated and plans are drawn for their execution. The scientific results of programmes in progress are discussed at the numerous Scientific Symposia, Commission and Working Group meetings and other gatherings of scientists that are held during these assemblies. General Assemblies have been held since 1922 and, since 1963, at 4 years intervals. The last General Assembly was held in Prague, Czech Republic in 2015. The next General Assembly will be held in Montreal, Canada in 2019.
