Author and Presenter Instructions
The 15th Annual Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology.
Papers for this conference are solicited on the following:
GOES 16/17 Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) Sensor Performance, Data Products, and User Applications (Joint between the 15th Annual Symposium on New Generation Operational Environmental Satellite Systems, the Ninth Conference on the Meteorological Application of Lightning Data, and the 18th Conference on Artificial and Computational Intelligence and its Applications to the Environmental Sciences);
Student Paper Awards
An independent 3-person committee, to be selected by the 15th NEWGEN co-chairs, will evaluate and recommend winners of the student award ($100 each) based on an assessment of the oral presentations. Four criteria will be used for posters and orals: (1) Originality and depth of research accomplished; (2) Quality of oral presentation by student; and (3) Quality of slides or poster for presentation. If feasible, the contribution of the student in designing the research problem and conducting the work will also be assessed. Each criterion will be graded out of 10, and the committee will confer on a winner. The abstract will need to have been submitted to a session within the 15th NEWGEN.
The 15GOESRJPSS Conference will be co-hosting a Speed Networking Event. The Event allows students and early professionals to network with mentors via ‘speed networking’ where the mentors (meteorology and allied discipline professionals) roam between tables at set intervals introducing the students and early professionals to a wide array of professions in the field of meteorology. The speed networking will be followed by a social with light hors d'oeuvres, providing a great time for open networking. This allows the students and the mentors of their selected discipline to have extended conversations after their speed-mentoring
