The International Snow Science Workshop (ISSW) exists to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and experiences between snow science researchers and practitioners. 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 practitioners from all over the world. In 2009, the first European ISSW was held in Davos, Switzerland and additional European ISSWs are planned.
All ISSW Papers and Abstracts are now available online. The ISSW Proceedings database project was a joint development effort of Montana State University Library Digital Collections and the ISSW Steering Committee.
The online database has full-text, PDF format retrieval of ISSW Proceedings papers and poster talks from 1976-2012.
