PDF version - Abstract template

The 76th Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at the Lake Morey Resort, Fairlee, Vermont, USA, 4 – 6 June 2019.  After last year’s celebration of the 75th meeting of the ESC in Washington, D.C., we return to a familiar venue in rural Vermont in close proximity to a long-time ESC supporter, the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), Hanover, New Hampshire, USA.

The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, remote sensing, modeling and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology.  The ESC has only a plenary session (oral and poster viewing), allowing time to view and discuss the research of each participant. You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation (please indicate type). Using the template available, an abstract of 200-250 words should be submitted by 15 March 2019 to the program chair:

Dr. Elias Deeb


Students are encouraged to enter the ESC Student Competitions. The winner of the best oral presentation by a student will receive the Wiesnet Medal, a $750 prize. The Campbell Scientific Canada Award of $500 will be awarded to the submitted paper demonstrating the most innovative use of technology in the gathering of data. In addition, the David Hewitt Miller Student Poster Award of $100 will be awarded to the best student poster.

To be considered for the Wiesnet and Campbell awards, please indicate your interest in participating and submit an electronic copy of the paper (for the Campbell award) with the supervisor's endorsement (separate email) to the Chair of the Research Committee (B. Forman, see below), no later than 26 April 2019. Additional details will be available on the ESC website.

Dr. Barton Forman


All papers or extended abstracts will be published in the 76th Proceedings of the Eastern Snow Conference. 

Conference information including Registration Form and Accommodation info will be forthcoming and will be posted on this page.
