About ISSW


The International Snow Science Workshop aims at bringing together snow scientists and avalanche practitioners, fostering the knowledge transfer into practice and promoting research by presenting practical problems.

The ISSW has its roots in meetings held bi-annually in North America, rotating between the USA and Canada. These meetings originated informally in the 1950s and early 60's when practitioners realized the importance of interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and experiences. Later the motto of the workshop “A Merging of Theory and Practice” was coined.
