101st American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting

Event Date
Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 7:00am - Friday, January 15, 2021 at 2:00pm

In response to the recent survey regarding the 101st AMS Annual Meeting and as noted in this announcement, AMS is moving all oral and poster sessions, panel discussions, and exhibits to a virtual format. AMS will also plan on having virtual networking opportunities and short courses available. AMS is planning a more inclusive meeting than in past years. Please refer to the 2021 AMS Annual Meeting FAQ’s that are posted on the Annual Meeting website.
