The 21st Annual AMS Student Conference will take place on the weekend before the main AMS Meeting (Saturday and Sunday, January 22nd-23rd). The student conference, in-person poster session will be held on Saturday, 22 January from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and the remote poster session will be held on Sunday, 23 January from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. 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.

We want to make sure all student conference attendees are aware that there will be in-person networking with professionals at the student conference. We have already received commitments from a variety of speakers in various sectors in the weather, water, and climate enterprise to join us in Houston. We are providing ample opportunity to students to network with these professionals, including an expanded conversations with professionals session. We are planning this robust line up of speakers and networking opportunities that every student should be excited to attend if they choose to join us in Houston
