Announcing the Virtual Snow Science Workshop 2020

8/10/2020

​​The Fernie Organizing Committee is excited to bring you an online version of the ISSW! Plans for ISSW 2021 in Fernie in October 2021 are still in place but until then, our virtual workshop will be a great opportunity to keep up to date with your colleagues around the world.

 

VSSW 2020 will be live-streamed, with international-calibre speaker sessions, panel discussions, and posters. 14 invited speakers, representing many nations across our avalanche community, will be asked to interpret their research and leading-edge practices. Two panel discussions will provide thought-provoking, interactive conversations, and poster sessions will showcase a wide range of cutting-edge ideas.


Call for Posters

Interested in submitting a poster? This is a great opportunity to publicize your latest research and get feedback from other researchers and practitioners. Click here for Poster Registration.

 

Posters will be available for viewing shortly before the start of our virtual conference, during the conference, and for a period afterwards. Two interactive poster sessions are planned; one timed optimally for a North American audience, and one timed for a European audience. During these sessions, delegates will be encouraged to strike up in-person discussions with presenters in small-group virtual meeting rooms.
