AMS 2023 Annual Meeting

Members of the Unidata Program Center staff will be attending the 103rd annual American Meteorology Society meeting, to be held 8-12 January 2023 in Denver, CO. The schedule below lists sessions or posters presented by staff members. We'll also be spending time in the UCAR booth (#423) in the main Exhibit hall (map).

Note: AMS is monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and prioritizing the safety of presenters, attendees, exhibitors, program chairs, staff, and any volunteers who plan to attend in-person in Denver. See:

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.

Unidata will be at table T-48 at the Career Resource Fair, which runs from 5:30 - 7:30pm Saturday, January 7 and 6:30 - 8:30pm Sunday, January 8 in Hall A. Program Center staff will be on hand to discuss our summer internship opportunities and how Unidata products can help students in their education, forecasting, and research. Come visit us!

Student Conference Python Workshop

Following up on previous successful student conference Python workshops, we're holding an in-person workshop this year. If you're participating in the Student Conference, you can join the Python workshop, which will be held from 2:00-3:45 on Sunday, January 8. Workshop registration information should be part of your student conference materials. Note that we'll need your GitHub user ID in order to provide access to the workshop resources.
