Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
To Thursday 15 April 2021
Please join us on April 12–15, 2021 for the 88th annual meeting of the Western Snow Conference, which will be held virtually using the WebEx Meeting platform. The North Continental planning team is hard at work developing a program that is varied and allows personal interactions with vendors and authors.
There are still slots available for abstract submissions, but time is running out! You are invited to submit an abstract of 150 – 300 words for either oral or poster presentation by January 31, 2021. Submit abstracts by filling out the online submission form at:
The theme for the 2021 Western Snow Conference is "Bridging the Gap between Research and Operations", however, all snow-related research in the context of measurements, modeling, and water supply are welcome. Keeping in line with the conference theme, papers involving connections between research and operations will be given priority. Papers accepted for presentation at the canceled 2020 Western Snow Conference will also be given priority. In addition to poster and paper presentations, a Monday short course is being planned entitled "A Round Table to Bridge the Research-Operations Divide", led by Dr. Sean Fleming (USDA-NRCS NWCC).
Please share this Call for Papers and Conference Announcement with colleagues, students and friends who may be interested. The virtual format this year provides a unique opportunity to increase participation, particularly among those who would otherwise be unable to attend due to financial, geographic, or time constraints.
