Announcement and Call for Papers
We are pleased to announce that the 77th Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held as a virtual meeting hosted by the University of Saskatchewan, on 9 June 2021. A revised meeting format will be used in support of the ongoing public health and safety efforts around the world. The single-day virtual meeting will focus on student-led research.
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, includingin situ observations of snow, remote sensing of snow, and high latitude snow processes. The ESC has only plenary oral presentation sessions, allowing time to discuss the research of each participant. You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral presentation. An abstract of ~300 words should be submitted by 30 April 2021 to the program chair:
Dr. Krystopher Chutko
Students are encouraged to identify their submissions as “student research” in order to enter the ESC Student Paper Competitions. The winner of the best submitted student presentation will receive the Wiesnet Medal and a $750 prize. The Campbell Scientific Canada Award (open only to Canadian students) of $500 will be awarded to the submitted paper demonstrating the most innovative use of technology in the gathering of data.
To be considered for the Wiesnet and Campbell awards, please send a copy of the abstract with the supervisor's endorsement (separate email) to the Chair of the Research Committee (B. Forman), no later than 30 April 2021. Please consult the ESC web site for conditions and details.
