The 32nd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology is organized by the AMS   and sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.


All attendees must register to attend the conference. 

There are three ways to register for the 32nd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology

1) Online Registration

2) Paper Registration 

3) On-Site registration. The AMS 32nd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology registration desk at the Hilton Condado, in the Ponce Foyer, will be open for registration starting on Sunday, 17April from 2:00-7:30 p.m. and will remain open throughout the Conference.


Due to a migration to a new association management system and database, the AMS will be UNABLE TO ACCEPT online conference registrations from 11-28 March 2016. We will also be unable to process payment for conference registrations during this time. Once our new association management system is in place, we will be able to offer you an easier and more efficient interface that will better manage aspects of your membership and/or AMS profile, including a single login for all areas of the AMS site. Thank you for your patience and continued participation with the American Meteorological Society.  Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the AMS Meetings Department at meetings@ametsoc.org. 

If you wish to register between the dates of March 11-28 please fax your form to (617) 249-0272. Payment will not be processed until March 29.
