The annual BASC Symposium will take place on March 7 and 8, 2024.  This year, the theme is “Going with the flow: AI/ML in Atmospheric Science”


Please register here for the Friday events and (optional) poster submission.  The “early-ish bird” deadline is Friday, March 1st.  You can register past this date until the day of the symposium, but the registration fee increases to $130 (imposed by the caterer).  Poster instructions: Posters should be in vertical (i.e., portrait) format and no larger than 48" high by 36" wide.
