97th AMS Annual Meeting | 22–26 January 2017 | Seattle, WA

Call for Judges for 16th Annual Student Conference Poster Competition

Poster Judges Needed for AMS Student Conference

This year, over 200 students will be presenting a poster about their latest research projects at the AMS Student Conference in Seattle on the evening of Sunday, January 22nd (from 5:30-7:30pm). While some of them may be giving follow-up talks and poster presentations later on during the week, this will be many students' only chance to show off their hard work from the past year. It'll be the one of the only chances you have in Seattle to get a sneak peek at what research ideas are brewing in the minds of our community's next generation of scientists and researchers!

The AMS Student Conference Poster Session is open to all AMS attendees, but we're looking to recruit several dozen members of the community to more directly engage with our students by serving as volunteer judges for our poster competition. We plan to highlight our top undergraduate and graduate poster presenters with awards, and we need your help to figure out who those deserving students and posters are!

Poster judges must be professionals or senior graduate students.

If you think you can help us with judging our poster competition, please fill out this form. We request that poster judges arrive at the poster hall prior to the start of the poster session (by 4:45pm) so that we’ll be ready to begin the judging promptly at 5:30pm. If you have any questions, please contact Poster Session chair Aryeh Drager (aryeh@atmos.colostate.edu).

 

Thanks for your help in making this our best poster competition yet!

Sincerely,

AMS SCPC Co-Chairs

Aryeh Drager, Joshua Alland, and Kristy Carter
