CfP: American Meteorological Society Meeting History Symposium

AMSCall for Proposals

14th Annual History Symposium

96th AMS Annual Meeting • 10–14 January 2016 • New Orleans, Louisiana

The theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting, “Earth System Science in Service to Society”, weaves the many parts of AMS into a common core. Emphasizing the academic and research strength of AMS, the theme also connects that research to the benefits that society gains from our science. AMS merges the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth with human-centered “domains of action”: (1) Observing, (2) Analysis and research leading to understanding, (3) Modeling and prediction, and (4) Social sciences – how people deal with Earth. “Service to Society” explicitly evokes the integrated and complementary government and commercial enterprise that the AMS has done so much to foster over the last decade. The 2016 meeting integrates AMS’ proud, nearly 100-year history of making a positive difference in the lives of our citizens by continually communicating the advances of its science research to the public and policy makers.

Papers on all aspects of the history of atmospheric and related sciences are solicited for this symposium and those addressing to the annual meeting theme are especially encouraged.

Abstracts are due by: 3 August 2015
A $95 abstract fee is charged at the time of submission and includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the recording, conversion, and posting of your presentation to the AMS Website.  The fee (payable by credit card or purchase order) is refundable only if your abstract is not accepted.
