The 21st Annual AMS Student Conference will take place on the weekend before the main AMS Meeting (Saturday and Sunday, January 22nd-23rd). To conclude the student conference, a poster session will be held on Sunday, January 23rd, from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. This session is open for attendance by all AMS meeting attendees. The student poster session is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research, network with fellow students and professionals, and gain experience presenting their research. It will be held in-person, although we are also offering an asynchronous virtual poster session for those who do not wish to physically attend the meeting. Please note that only students presenting in-person will be eligible for poster session awards. To present, you must register for and attend the Student Conference, and you also must be a 2022 AMS Student Member.

The AMS Student Conference Planning Committee is seeking poster judges to review the student posters for the annual poster competition for graduate and undergraduate students. 


If you are interested, please fill out this survey. Filling this out just indicates to us that you are interested in potentially judging. All judging will be held in-person in Houston. We also ask for professionals and post-docs only to serve as judges, however, you do not need an M.S or Ph.D. to judge.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the poster session chair, Nick Grondin, at ngrondin@vols.utk.edu.
