40th Conference on Radar Meteorology

40th Conference on Radar Meteorology

Meeting Postponed

Thanks to all that took the time to respond to the recent survey regarding travel to our 40th Conference on Radar Meteorology. An overwhelming majority of you noted that, at this time, you are not comfortable or would be unable to travel to Minneapolis, MN for an in-person conference later this year. Given this, the program chairs have decided to postpone the conference, originally scheduled for 30 August - 03 September 2021 to 27 August - 01 September 2023

While we wait for 2023, we invite you to participate in the Symposium on Radar Science in the Service of Earth System Predictability that will take place during the AMS 102nd Annual Meeting in Houston in January 2022. We are now soliciting session topic proposals (due 1 April) and will begin soliciting abstracts in mid-May (due 3 August). Information on the Symposium can be found here and information about the 102nd Annual Meeting can be found here.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while AMS leadership closely monitors the ongoing COVID-19 situation. We look forward to your participation in 2022 and 2023!
