The Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will take place at York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 9 – 11 June 2020. The ESC is a joint Canadian/U.S. organization founded in the 1940s originally with members from eastern North America. Today, our members come from the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany, as well as North America. Our current membership includes scientists, engineers, snow surveyors, technicians, professors, students and professionals involved in operations and maintenance.

Call for papers:

The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, remote sensing, modeling, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. We anticipate including sessions on a wide variety of snow and ice themes, including in situ observations of snow, radar measurement of snow, and high latitude snow processes. The ESC has only plenary (oral 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 250-300 words should be submitted by 31 March 2020 to the program chair.

All papers, extended abstracts, or abstracts will be published in the 77th Proceedings of the Eastern Snow Conference. Please consult the ESC web site for details on submission. Conference information on registration and accommodations will be forthcoming and will be posted on the ESC website.
