The student conference is intended for all undergraduate and graduate students.  In order to attend the AMS Student Conference, you must be a current student member of the AMS. You must be a student to present a poster at the Poster Session!

This year, sessions at the student conference will focus on self-exploration and understanding through exposure to career options and recent research in the geosciences. As this year’s 19th annual Student Conference coincides with the centennial of the AMS, invited keynote lectures and sessions will show how the weather enterprise has promoted ideas and fostered innovations throughout the past hundred years and simultaneously look to the future. Speakers from the private, broadcast, academic, and government sectors will engage both undergraduate and graduate students with topics related to networking tips, field work experience, and an investigation of how historical events have shaped research and communication innovations. During the conference, a career fair and networking evening will provide a forum for students to personally interact with potential employers and graduate institutions. In addition, a special poster session at the conclusion of the conference will provide a great opportunity for students to showcase their research.
