Student Award Opportunities

The 19th Annual Symposium on Operational Environmental Satellite Systems and the 13Th Conference on Transition of Research to Operations are pleased to co-host Student Presentation Awards at the 103rd Annual Meeting. Award certificates and cash prizes will be given for the best Student oral and poster presentations. Students who wish to be considered for these awards should indicate so when submitting their abstract. In order to be considered for an award, the Student must be the lead and presenting author.
The basis for an award will be:
          a.) Originality of the work,
          b.) Quality of the presentation (oral and poster/slides) and the Student’s delivery.

Student and Early Career Professionals Event

The 19th Annual Symposium on Operational Environmental Satellite Systems will be co-hosting with other Conferences and Symposia the 9th Annual Speed Networking Event [9SPNE]. The Event allows students and early career professionals to network with mentors via “speed networking” where the mentors (meteorology and allied discipline professionals) roam between tables at set intervals introducing the students and early professionals to a wide array of professions in the field of meteorology. The speed networking will include a social with light hors d'oeuvres, providing a great time for open networking. This allows the students, the early career professionals, and the mentors of their selected discipline to have extended conversations after their speed-mentoring.
