Call for Proposals - ASP Summer Colloquium

Deadline September 6, 2024

ASP invites proposals from the NCAR staff for the annual summer colloquium topic for 2024. As you may know, ASP hosts a summer colloquium designed for graduate students. We favor subjects that represent new or rapidly developing areas or research for which good course material may not yet be available. The colloquium brings together lecturers and graduate students to NCAR for two weeks for classroom presentations and other forms of instruction and interaction. ASP provides support for the costs of the meeting, typically for about 25 student participants and up to 10 lecturers from the community at large.


Your proposal should be 2-3 pages in length. It should include some detail about how the colloquium will be structured, but not a day-by-day schedule. You may wish to include some information about hands on tutorials, along with prospective scientific co-organizers and lecturers. Also, who are the target students? Please keep in mind that the colloquium is not meant to support ongoing workshop activities; it must be a stand-alone event, and it cannot be longer than two weeks. If you plan to include hands on computer tutorials or interactive exercises, please let us know who will be providing the systems support. Your proposal should include detailed plans for the support and use of any computer resources.


The ASP schedule for 2024 allows for your proposed colloquium to occur during the following dates at the Mesa Lab:

July 8-19, 2024 or July 15-26, 2024

Please contact Scott Briggs (sbriggs ~at~ to submit your proposal or additional details regarding this opportunity.
