The student conference is a benefit of AMS membership and 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.
Early registration will be available on-line until 16 December 2014 at a rate of $40. Starting on 17 December, late registration will be available for $60. On-Site registration ($60) may be available as space permits.
Eligibility to Attend
Important eligibility requirement: You must be a third or fourth year undergraduate student, or graduate student, and an active 2015 AMS student member in order to attend the AMS Student Conference and to present a poster at the Poster Session.
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.
Submit a Paper
In addition to presentations and group discussions featuring both noted professionals and fellow students, we encourage active AMS student members to submit papers about a wide range of topics. Please ensure you have applied or renewed your AMS student membership prior to submitting your abstract. All accepted abstracts will be scheduled as a poster. Students should create a poster that will be up for display during the 14th 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!
