The 71st Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at Appalachian State University, Boone, North Carolina, USA, from 3-5 June 2014. The ESC is an international organization in Canada and the United States concerned with snow and ice, in particular the origin, precipitation, accumulation, character, melt, and runoff of snow. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year’s general theme is SNOW AND ICE IN MOUNTAIN ENVIRONMENTS, with a complementary sub-theme of ephemeral snow. The ESC has only plenary (paper and poster viewing) sessions, allowing time to view and discuss the research of each participant. You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation (please indicate type). An abstract of 200-250 words should be submitted by 7 March 2014 to the program chair: Dr. Baker Perry (perrylb [at] gmail.com). Complete registration and lodging information is available on the ESC website.

Students are encouraged to enter the ESC Student Paper Competitions. The winner of the best submitted student paper will receive the Wiesnet Medal, a $750 prize. The Campbell Scientific Canada Award of $500 will be awarded to the submitted paper by a Canadian student demonstrating the most innovative use of technology in the gathering of data. In addition, the David Hewitt Miller Student Poster Award of $100 will be awarded to the best student poster. To be considered for the Wiesnet and Campbell awards please submit an abstract by 7 March 2014 and send an electronic copy of the paper with the supervisor's endorsement (separate email) to the Chair of the Research Committee, Dr. Christopher Fuhrmann (fuhrman1 [at] email.unc.edu), no later than 25 April 2014. Please consult the ESC website for conditions and details.

All submitted papers will be published in the ESC Proceedings; please consult the ESC website for details on submission. In addition, Hydrological Processes (HP) will publish refereed papers (typically 10-12 are published) from the meeting. The subject matter of these papers must fit within the scope of the journal. If you would like your paper to be considered for journal publication, please indicate this on your abstract and submit an electronic copy of your paper to HP co-editors Mauri Pelto (mspelto [at] nichols.edu) or Richard Kelly (rejkelly [at] uwaterloo.ca) by 3 July 2014.
