Members of the Unidata Program Center staff will be attending the 97th annual American Meteorology Society meeting, 22-26 January 2017 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. Unidata will be in Booth 426 in the exhibit hall (map); feel free to stop by to talk with us. The booth will feature live, hands-on demonstrations of Unidata software and services, including a look at the current state of the AWIPS environment. Come and talk with the developers about what's coming up and what you'd like to see.

Student Conference Career 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 Fair and networking evening is scheduled to provide a forum for students to personally interact with professionals who represent potential employers and graduate institutions.
Unidata will be at table 21 at the Career Fair, which runs from Saturday, January 21 - Monday, January 23. Program Center staff will be on hand to discuss how Unidata products can help students in their education, forecasting, and research. Come visit us!
