The International Snow Science Workshop (ISSW) exists to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and experiences between snow science researchers and practioners. The motto of the International Snow Science Workshop is "A Merging of Theory and Practice". ISSW hosts a biennial conference in the western North American mountain region that brings together researchers and practioners from all over the world. In 2009, the first European ISSW was held in Davos, Switzerland and additonal European ISSWs are planned.
The next ISSW Conference, ISSW 2013 will be held in Grenoble, France, from the 7th October to the 11th October 2013. Visit the ISSW2013 website.
