International Conference on Snow Hydrology “SnowHydro”

Heidelberg, Germany
From: 12.02.2018 to: 15.02.2018

The purpose of the SnowHydro conference is to present recent research findings in all areas of snow hydrology, to facilitate scientific discussions and to provide opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. The conference shall attract scientists, students and other professionals with different geographic origin and scientific background. The participation of early career researchers is positively encouraged. The organizing committee will strive as far as possible for a balance with respect to senior and junior scientists in the conference’s sessions.

TOPICS
Contributions on all aspects of snow and hydrology are welcome, with emphasis on the following specific topics:
• Remote sensing of snow properties;
• Experimental research and new measurement techniques;
• Spatial variability of snow;
• Snow-vegetation interaction;
• Snow data assimilation for modelling purposes;
• The prediction of snow melt and runoff;
• Simulation models of snow, model comparisons;
• Snow in semi-arid environments;
• Climate change, snow conditions and water supply; and
• Teaching concepts in snow hydrology.

SCIENTIFIC SESSIONS
The scientific sessions of the SnowHydro conference will be oriented towards the specific topics mentioned above. However, the organizing committee decided that the sessions should be mainly driven by the scientific community. Proposals for sessions are therefore invited and should be submitted to snowhydro18@uni-heidelberg.de no later than 30 September 2017. Proposals must include the following information: session title and short description of expected contents, proposers name, affiliation and e-mail address, as well as proposed convener name(s) and affiliation.
