AMS Student Conference - Call for Poster Judges

The AMS Student Conference Planning Committee (SCPC) is proud to announce the 4th Annual Student Conference Poster Contest, which will occur during the 2015 Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ. About 200 undergraduate and graduate students will display their research posters on Sunday, January 4, 2015 from 5:45 - 7:15 p.m.

In order to make this event a success, we need your help! Our goal is to recruit at least 25 professionals and/or graduate students with advanced standing to serve as volunteer judges. The SCPC will organize judging sheets, and pair professionals in a judging “team,” who will judge a small selection of pre­-screened posters during the actual poster session; the precise number of posters each team will judge are dependent on the number of judges we get. Judging will be based both on the poster itself, and a short research presentation (no more than 5 minutes) if the student is available during judging. First, second, and third place will be awarded in undergraduate and graduate categories.

This is a fantastic opportunity to preview and interact with the up ­and ­coming generation of meteorologists and atmospheric scientists. Many students elect to present their research at the Student Conference in lieu of the Annual Meeting itself, so this may be your only chance to see some truly spectacular work!

If you would like to help us as a poster judge, please fill out the form below. Any questions or comments should be directed to Student Conference co-Chair Daniel Rothenberg (darothen@mit.edu). Please note that we'd prefer judges to be able to arrive no later than 5:30 pm on Sunday, January 4th, and we hope that they will be able to stay for the duration of the poster session.

We thank you in advance for your help!
