The 18th Conference on Mesoscale Processes is organized by the AMS Committee on Mesoscale Processes and hosted by the American Meteorological Society.
There are several sponsorship opportunities available at the 18th Conference on Mesoscale Processes. All sponsors will receive recognition on the conference website, conference program and signage at event sponsored. Interested companies and organizations should contact Meghan Summers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All attendees must register to attend the conference. Registration may be completed online, via fax-in form, or onsite. Everyone presenting (both oral and poster) and/or attending must register and wear a badge. Be sure to register by 14 June 2019 in order to receive the lower registration rate. Registrations received at AMS from 15 June and through the conference dates will be processed at the higher rate (see rates below). After 28 July please register at the meeting or online. Payment may be made with check, purchase order (hard copy required) or credit card (MasterCard/VISA/American Express). FAXED registration forms must be accompanied by payment (PO or credit card # only).
Volunteer students are needed for registration and audio/visual support during the conference. Student volunteers are required to be in attendance the entire conference, and be available to work at least 1/2 a day from Sunday through Thursday. The students will work either the first or second shift (i.e., morning or afternoon). For volunteering, the student will get their registration fee waived and $25.00 per day for food allowance. This program is a first come, first served basis. A limited number of students will be needed for the conference. Those students interested should please contact Christine Card (email@example.com) for details.
