14th Annual Earth System and Space Science "Poster" Conference

Friday, March 19, 2021


Poster Conference Flyer

This free conference highlights work by students and postdoctoral scientists conducting research in Earth System & Planetary Science and Space Physics & Engineering. Participants and visitors from CU departments and research institutes are encouraged to participate. Feel free to download the flyer (click to enlarge) and share it with your department or institute.


To register, please provide your contact information and a title for your lightning talk using this form by February 28 at 11:59p MT. The planning committee will release a schedule of lightning talks as well as a shared Google drive to upload talks in early March. All presentation slides will need to be uploaded to the shared Google drive by March 15 so that they can be compiled into one slide deck in advance of the conference.

We ask that all participants use this template slide to generate their presentations in order to make sure all slides can be easily compiled into a single slide deck.


In place of traditional posters, participants will be asked to prepare 4-minute lightning talks motivating their work and describing key research results. Lightning talks should be prepared so that they are accessible for a wide audience. Attendees will be split into Zoom breakout rooms to attend lightning talks that are focused on similar topics. At the conclusion of the event, a virtual lunch will be held to facilitate research and casual conversations among participants.

Topic areas that fall under the purview of the conference include: Atmospheric Chemistry, Synoptic and Mesoscale Meteorology, Oceanography, Large-Scale Dynamics, Coupled Climate Processes, Aerosols, Clouds, and Precipitation, Boundary Layer and Wind Energy, and Snow and Ice.
