ARM/ASR Meeting: Submit Abstracts and Session ideas by February 24

Published: 29 January 2020
Join your ARM and ASR colleagues at the June 2020 ARM/ASR joint meeting in Rockville, Maryland.

The Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators Meeting will be held the week of June 22, 2020.

ASR PIs are encouraged to attend the meeting and to submit poster abstracts by February 24, 2020. The ARM/ASR meeting is an opportunity for ASR PIs to share their scientific results, connect with ARM infrastructure, build collaborations, and learn about the work of your colleagues.

The ARM and ASR program managers work with the ARM/ASR Coordination Team (AACT) to organize the meeting and develop the plenary session agenda. Attendees submit breakout session ideas. After the breakout session submission deadline (February 24, 2020), the program managers and the AACT will review the submissions. Sometimes, people submit similar breakout session ideas. When this happens, we may work with the submitters to combine the requests into a single session.

If you have ideas for the meeting beyond breakout sessions, please share them with the working group chairs, SFA leads, or UEC leadership who comprise the AACT.

If you are new to ASR and this will be your first ARM/ASR meeting, one of the best ways to get involved is to review the breakout session topics once they are posted this spring and to then contact the organizers of the sessions of greatest interest.

Due to time constraints, there will not be a New ASR PI lunch during the ARM/ASR meeting this year. However, we are planning a series of “From the Program Manager” posts on topics of interest to both new and experienced ASR PIs. If there are topics you would like us to address, please send a note to the program managers. Also, if you have advice for first-time ARM/ASR meeting attendees, please let us know so that we can share it.

– Shaima Nasiri, ASR Program Manager
