Major Weather Events and Impacts of 2022 is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Board on Societal Impacts.

Call for Papers

The Major Weather Events and Societal Impacts of 2022 symposium will have a poster session and a one-day oral session that includes submitted abstracts and invited speakers. The sessions will focus on significant national and international weather and climate events and their related societal impacts that occurred from about October 2021 through September 2022.


Presentations and posters should include:


  • A brief meteorological/climatological review of the event that includes an assessment of its extremeness.
  • Describe why the event was considered major in its societal impacts and what was learned about observing, forecasting, and communicating the event.
  • Due to the unusual circumstance of the continuing pandemic, feel free to include impacts due to ‘social distancing’, lack of resources, or any other major Covid-19-related consequences.


Note: Since there are only a limited number of time slots for oral presentations, authors should contact the chairpersons prior to submitting their abstract: Klaus Wolter ([email protected]), Owen Shieh ([email protected]), and Tom Bedard ([email protected]). This helps with planning purposes, and to balance the number of invited speakers and submitted abstracts. We will try to hold a slot or two for events that occur after the abstract deadline of 3 October 2022 7 October 2022. Submitted abstracts will be notified of acceptance no later than 15 November 2022, which is later than for other conferences at the annual meeting.
