Note:  We have designed the agenda this year to appeal to both meteorology professionals and the public/educators. Below you will find the two tracks. Anyone is able to attend any of the sessions, however. 

The Hogan Campus Center will be a Wi-Fi hotspot for this year's conference. Conference attendees are encouraged to bring their Wi-Fi enabled devices to the conference. Doing so will allow you you access websites mentioned during the various presentations. In additional some presentations may have an on-line interactive component. If you have a Wi-Fi enable device, bring it along!
