Call for Papers
Join us for the 13th Annual AMS Student Conference and Career Fair sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Student Conference Planning Committee, 1–2 February 2014 as part of the 94th AMS Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. A registration fee of $25 has been set for this conference and registration must be completed online. There will be no on-site registration and YOU MUST REGISTER BY 14 JANUARY 2014. Students requesting to register after 14 January will need to pay a $15 late fee, in addition to the $25 registration fee. There will be no requests honored after 21 January 2014. Important eligibility requirement: You must be an active 2014 AMS member or student member in order to attend the conference.
In addition to presentations and group discussions featuring both noted professionals and fellow students, we encourage students to submit papers about a wide range of topics. All accepted abstracts will be scheduled as a poster. Students should create a poster (reference the AMS “Poster Presentation” guidelines here: http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/speakersupport.pdf) that will be up for display during the 3rd Annual Student Conference Poster Contest on Sunday evening. Students are encouraged to stand by their posters and answer questions during the “formal poster-viewing hours,” which will be released at a later date.
Abstracts for this conference may cover a wide range of student interests and activities. Suggested topics include overviews of ongoing student research projects and/or student applications of emerging technologies. We expect to have plenty of space so you can anticipate your abstract to be accepted and receive significant visibility as a poster!
The student conference is intended for junior and senior undergraduates and all graduate students, and will focus on interdisciplinary topics and wide-ranging opportunities in the atmospheric and related sciences.
Sessions will include invited speakers from the private, academic, and government sectors. A career fair and networking evening is scheduled to provide a forum for students to personally interact with professionals who represent potential employers and graduate institutions.
