SnowHydro – International Conference on Snow Hydrology

12. – 15. February 2018 at Heidelberg University, Heidelberg (Germany)

Aims of the Conference

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 scientist in the conference’s sessions.


We welcome contributions on all aspects of snow and hydrology, 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
  • 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. They should be submitted to:

no later than 30 September 2017 and 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
