Earth System Modeling Graduate Symposium

The Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA) at George Mason University invites you to join us for the inaugural Earth System Modeling Graduate Symposium on April 11, 2019. The Earth System Modeling Graduate Symposium will bring together graduate students from across the United States to share research on climate. A wide variety of climate-related topics will be considered for presentation, so all climate graduate students are encouraged to apply. We feel that the more opportunities that graduate students are given to share their own research and to learn from others, the better scientists they will become.

Keynote speaker:

  • Professor Benjamin Zaitchik of the Johns Hopkins University Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences
  • An invitation has been extended to another keynote speaker, and we are awaiting confirmation as to his availability.

To encourage broad participation, travel awards are available to students traveling more than 50 miles to attend.

The goals of the symposium are to:

  • Expose graduate students to presenting scientific research to their peers.
  • Share a wide variety of climate research with graduate students from around the region.
  • Provide a space to facilitate the development of lasting relationships between researchers and students.
