The 22nd Annual AMS Student Conference will take place 07-08 January 2023, the weekend before the main AMS annual meeting.  The Student Conference provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to broaden their horizons, cultivate new skills, hear from leaders in the weather, water, and climate enterprise, and network with fellow students and professionals.  Attendees also have the opportunity to participate in workshops to help with their professional development as well as attend the Graduate School and Career Fair to help with planning the next step in their career.  Students also have the opportunity to gain valuable experience by presenting their work at the Student Conference Poster Session.  The full program will be available in October 2022 and it is our intention to offer both in-person and virtual participation options at this time.     

Call for Papers

Abstract submissions will be open from June - October 2022.  All students presenting at the Student Conference will be assigned a poster presentation.  There is no cost to submit an abstract to the student conference.  Students are able to submit the same abstract for both the Student Conference and for the AMS Annual Meeting.  Presenters must be an AMS Student Member for 2023 and will also need to register for the Student Conference.  Registration for the conference will open in October 2022.
