Summer Colloquia

Every year ASP hosts a summer colloquium designed for graduate students. We favor subjects that represent new or rapidly developing areas of research for which good course material may not yet be available. The colloquium brings together lecturers and graduate students to NCAR for three weeks for classroom presentations and other forms of instruction and interaction. The workshop generally includes about 25 student participants, and several lecturers from NCAR and the community at large. In recent years, the colloquia have included both lectures and hands on tutorials with student projects.
