11th Annual AMS Student Conference —Working Together with Technology in Research and Operations: How YOU Can Shape the Future

Join us for the 11th Annual AMS Student Conference and Career Fair sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, 21–22 (Sat–Sun) January 2012 as part of the 92nd AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Conference will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in Rooms 343/344.  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 JANUARY 2, 2012.

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 Sunday evening poster session. Students will not need to formally present their poster but they are encouraged to stand by their poster and answer questions during the ‘formal poster-viewing hours’, which will be released at a later date."

 Abstracts for this conference should cover a wide range of student interest 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. Important eligibility requirement: You must be an AMS member or student member in order to attend the conference.

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.
