Securing the Future:  Guiding Tomorrow's Leaders in the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise

We are excited about how our theme for our conference: “Securing the Future:  Guiding Tomorrow's Leaders in the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise” has come together thanks to the hard work of the AMS Student Conference Planning Committee.

As always, we will be holding a student conference poster session on Sunday 23 January. This session is open to be attended by all AMS meeting attendees and is a great opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research, network with fellow students and professionals, and gain experience giving scientific presentations. 

Students are invited to submit abstracts to the AMS Student Conference Poster session. There are two options for submission. We will be holding a traditional, in-person poster session on Sunday January 23 from 6:30–8:30pm and offering an asynchronous virtual session. You may select which option works best for you for your submission. However, only students presenting in-person in Houston will be eligible for poster session awards. No matter what your choice is, all abstract submissions for the AMS Student Conference poster session are FREE. However, you must register for and attend the AMS Student Conference itself and you must be a 2022 AMS Student Member!
