Revamping the #conversation: How Communication Fuels our Profession

Important eligibility requirement: You must be an active 2018 AMS student member to attend the AMS Student Conference. You must be a student to present a poster at the Poster Session! 

Sessions will include invited speakers from the private, broadcast, academic, and government sectors, and will engage and excite students on potential career options with recent research in the atmospheric sciences. During the conference, a career fair and networking evening will provide a forum for students to personally interact with potential employers and graduate institutions. In addition, a special poster session at the conclusion of the conference will provide a great opportunity for students to showcase their research. The student conference is intended for all undergraduate and graduate students.

Call for Papers

We encourage active AMS student members to submit abstracts about a wide range of topics. All accepted abstracts will be scheduled as poster presentations for the 17th Student Conference Poster Session during the evening of Sunday, 7 January 2018. The Poster Session is a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their work to peers and potential collaborators. Presenters will also have the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Student Conference Poster Competition. Please view the guidelines for the student conference poster session and competition. 

We welcome abstract submissions about student projects from across the atmospheric and related sciences, and we hope to accommodate all submitted abstracts at the Poster Session. Please submit your abstract electronically via the Web by 2 October 2017 and ensure you have applied for or renewed your AMS student membership prior to submitting your abstract. Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by mid-November 2017. There is no abstract submission fee, but poster presenters will be required to register for the AMS Student Conference, which is separate from AMS Annual Meeting registration.
