Weathering Together: Building a Climate of Diverse Community Perspectives
Important eligibility requirement: You must be an active 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 undergraduate and graduate 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.
We encourage active AMS student members to submit abstracts on a wide range of topics. All accepted abstracts will be scheduled as poster presentations for the 18th Student Conference Poster Session during the evening of Sunday, 6 January 2019. 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 2019 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 2018 and ensure you have applied for or renewed your AMS student membership prior to submitting your abstract. Authors of accepted presentations for the Poster Session will be notified via e-mail by mid-November 2018. 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.
Starting this year, select undergraduate presentations will be featured during the main conference in a special oral session entitled Exceptional Undergraduate Student Presentations. This session will feature four highly motivated, talented, and engaging undergraduate students with diverse research backgrounds. Undergraduate students interested in submitting their abstracts for this session must indicate their interest when submitting their abstract to the Student Conference Poster Session as well as submit an extended abstract (< 1000 words) into Presenter's Corner after submitting their poster. The deadline for submissions of extended abstracts is 15 October 2018, and students selected for the “Exceptional Undergraduate Student Presentations” will be notified via e-mail by the end of October. There is no additional submission fee to submit abstracts to this special session, but presenters will be required to register for the AMS Annual Meeting, which is separate from the AMS Student Conference registration.
