Call for Papers

This symposium will celebrate and honor Professor Richard Johnson for his distinguished career as a researcher and educator in atmospheric science. His career has led to important discoveries on tropical and midlatitude convection, and his contributions to many international field campaigns set a new standard for collecting and analyzing unique observations. The program will primarily consist of invited speakers, so we anticipate that most submissions will be presented in a poster session.

Papers for the Johnson Symposium are solicited on the following topics:

  • Tropical convection
  • Mesoscale convective systems
  • Monsoons and other tropical/subtropical oscillations
  • Atmospheric soundings
  • Field observations
  • Other topics related to Prof. Johnson’s research and teaching interests

Student Award Opportunities

The Johnson Symposium will host a student poster competition. Awards for the best three poster presentations will be given to student presenters. Students, if they wish to participate, should indicate their eligibility for a student award when they submit their abstracts. To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled as a student at a university, and you also must be the lead author and presenter of the work
