Members of the Unidata Program Center staff will be attending the 100th annual American Meteorology Society meeting, 12-16 January 2020 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Things are a little different with the Unidata booth in the Exhibit hall this year. Unidata staff will be spending time at the larger, combined UCAR/NCAR booth (#309 on the PDF or online map) — stop by to talk with us and see what else is happening at UCAR. The booth will feature live, hands-on demonstrations of Unidata software and services, including a look at the current state of the AWIPS, IDV, MetPy, and THREDDS Data Server packages. As always, you can talk with the developers about what's coming up and what you'd like to see.
The schedule below lists selected sessions at which Unidata staff (and summer interns) will be presenting or attending. See the AMS meeting Conference Technical Program for additional information on the sessions.

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 C4 at the Career Fair, which runs from 5:30 - 7:30pm Saturday, January 11 and 6:30 - 8:30pm Sunday, January 12 in the East Registration area just outside Exhibit Hall B. Program Center staff will be on hand to discuss how Unidata products can help students in their education, forecasting, and research. Come visit us!
