Annual Joint Meeting Scheduled for Fall 2022
The Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators (PI) Meeting will be October 24 to 27, 2022.
This meeting will bring together ASR researchers, ARM users, and ARM infrastructure members to review progress and discuss scientific priorities for ASR research and the ARM user facility. The 2022 meeting will be in-person with some hybrid elements. The meeting will include an in-person plenary, breakout, and poster sessions. Remote attendees will be able to listen to and present in the plenary and breakout sessions and submit virtual posters.
In the coming weeks, agenda details will be available on the meeting website. Meeting registration, hotel information, and instructions on submitting poster abstracts and breakout session requests are also available on the meeting website.
The formal meeting sessions will run from Monday, October 24, through Thursday, October 27, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time. More information about the meeting, including registration information, a draft agenda, and instructions on submitting poster abstracts and breakout session requests, can be found on the meeting website.
The ARM Infrastructure Management Board (IMB) and the ASR national laboratory scientific focus area (SFA) projects will meet on Monday morning. A lunch-time session for new ASR principal investigators will also be held on Monday before the general sessions start.
To reduce the number of overlapping breakout sessions at the meeting, meeting organizers encourage attendees to discuss with colleagues before submitting breakout session requests. Organizers also encourage co-organization of breakout sessions by ASR investigators and ARM infrastructure staff. Note that all requests may not be accepted, and some requested sessions may be combined.
Note: There is a nominal registration fee will be required for remote attendees, but it will be less than the in-person registration fee. Please note that due to DOE conference restrictions, all DOE national laboratory employees and subcontractors must receive approval from their laboratory point of contact before registering for the meeting.
- Registration opens July 11, 2022 (see meeting website)
- Submit breakout session requests by July 18, 2022 (see breakout submission form)
- Submit poster abstracts by August 15, 2022 (see poster abstract submission site)
A poster should be submitted for each funded ASR project. This may be either an in-person or virtual poster. There is a limit of one poster from each ASR-funded project. However, multi-institutional projects may submit one poster per institutional principal investigator. Laboratory science focus area projects should contact the program managers to discuss the number of posters from their projects. Given the limitation of one poster per project, a graduate student or postdoctoral research associate may be the first author on the poster, but the ASR principal investigator associated with the project should be clearly indicated in the abstract form.
Posters and poster abstracts should focus on progress and key findings of the project to date but need not cover all aspects of the project. PIs are also encouraged to inform DOE program managers about their research progress by submitting research highlights on recently accepted or published journal articles at https://asr.science.energy.gov/science/highlights.
ARM Infrastructure members and ARM users are encouraged to submit a poster on their ARM-supported activities.
PIs funded by the DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) for atmospheric research activities through related programs such as SBIR or the Early Career Research Program, or jointly funded by ASR and another program are also encouraged to attend and submit poster abstracts. Again, only a single poster abstract should be submitted per project.
All poster abstracts will be reviewed by the DOE program managers before being accepted and must be clearly relevant to the ASR program or show use of the ARM facility. DOE program managers reserve the right to reject any abstract. Specifications for posters and the abstract submission form can be found at https://www.orau.gov/arm-asr2022. Poster abstracts must be submitted no later than August 15, 2022.# # #
