88th Annual Western Snow Conference
Bridging the Gap between Research and Operations
Event Type: Webinars and Virtual Events
When: 12 April 2021 to 15 April 2021
For public safety and health reasons, the 88th Annual Meeting of the Western Snow Conference will be held in a virtual format. 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. You are invited to submit an abstract of 150 – 300 words for either oral or poster presentation by January 31, 2021. Those who submitted successful abstracts last year will be given preference as we prepare the 2021 conference agenda.
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.
