 Join us for the 12th Annual AMS Student Conference and Career Fair sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Student Conference Planning Committee, 5-6 January 2013 as part of the 93rd AMS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. 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 18 DECEMBER 2012.  Students requesting to register after December 18th will need to pay a $15 late fee, in addition to the $25 registration fee.  There will be no requests honored after January 1, 2013.

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 or present at 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 that will be up for display during the 2nd 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 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!

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.
