Virtual Snow Science Workshop 2020

The International Snow Science Workshop is the world’s largest conference on snow and avalanches and was planned to be in Fernie this Autumn. Due to the many uncertainties presented by the Covid-19 pandemic the ISSW 2020 organization made the difficult decision to postpone the conference by one year, ISSW 2020 is now scheduled for October 3 – 8, 2021, in Fernie.

To keep the “Merging of Theory and Practice” happening the Virtual Snow Science Workshop 2020 will be live-streamed on October 4th – 6th, 2020, with international-calibre speaker sessions, panel discussions, and posters.

14 invited speakers, representing many nations across our avalanche community, will be asked to interpret their research and leading-edge practices.

Two panel discussions will provide thought-provoking, interactive conversations, and poster sessions will showcase a wide range of cutting-edge ideas.

Registration is now open, for $30 you czn quench your thirst for avalanche knowledge. Sign up here.

The VSSW offers the opportunity to share your research and collaborate with a virtual poster session. Your poster file will be uploaded to the VSSW website and be accessible to other attendees during the week of the event.

The deadline to register a poster presentation has been extended to Sept. 11.
