The American Meteorological Society has announced that the 102st annual meeting, to be held 22-27 January 2022, will be held virtually rather than in the hybrid format previously envisioned. See the 102nd Annual Meeting Update (1.6.2022) for details.
All times in this post are Central Standard Time (UTC−06:00).
Student Conference Career Resource and Graduate School Fair
The AMS student conference is intended for junior and senior undergraduates and all graduate students, and will focus on interdisciplinary topics and wide-ranging opportunities in the atmospheric and related sciences. Sessions include invited speakers from the private, academic, and government sectors. A Career Resource Fair and networking evening is scheduled to provide a forum for students to personally interact with professionals who represent potential employers and graduate institutions.
While Unidata staff will not be attending the student conference in person, we will be hosting an online “Ask Me Anything” session to answer questions about the Unidata program and our 2022 Summer Internship program the week before the conference. The session will be on Wednesday, January 19th from 2:00-3:00pm CST. Register for the Zoom session to receive the meeting link.
Unidata staff will also be available to answer questions during a UCAR-wide event held on Tuesday, January 25th from 3:00-3:45 CST. Stay tuned for more details about that session.
Student Conference Python Workshop
While we're no longer able to provide an in-person Python workshop as part of this year's student conference, we will be hosting a synchronous virtual workshop scheduled for Sunday, 23 January from 10:00 - 11:30 am CST. If you're participating in the student conference, you can join Unidata's Python workshop. Watch for communication about this from the AMS student conference organizers. We'll continue to provide updates as the details become available.
Note: although no Unidata staff will be present at the workshop, the student conference organizers are considering making an in-person meeting space available for attendees.
The schedule below lists selected sessions at which Unidata staff will be presenting or attending virtually. See the AMS meeting Conference Technical Program for additional information on the sessions. If you're unsure about how to attend sessions virtually, see “How will I access the virtual meeting” on the AMS meeting site Frequently Asked Questions page for information.
