S ummer 2019 is coming to an end and therefore the time has come: The 3rd ÖGSL Newsletter informs you about current and upcoming ÖGSL activities.

We have already started a new season of schnee.semmelnars* with an Arctic topic “TLS monitoring of Arctic avalanche hazards for improved hazard forecasting routines”. We invite you to meet us at the Avalanche Symposium in Graz (https://akademie.naturfreunde.at/events/angebot/lawinensymposium-2019/). Furthermore we are already in the middle of the preparation of the “schnÖGSL” lectures that will take place at the turn of the year and are happy to present the ÖGSL Young Snow Professional Award for the ISSW 2020 (Fernie, CA):

ISSW 2020 – ÖGSL Young Snow Professional (YS) Award:

For the ISSW 2020 in Fernie (Canada) (http://www.issw2020.com/) there will be a “Travel Grant” (1.500 EUR as support for conference fee and travel). The Award and the associated grant are aimed at young practitioners and scientists under 30 years of age who wish to submit a contribution to the ISSW. The respective work must be carried out under the leadership of an Austrian institution/company. A committee will evaluate the contributions according to simple guidelines (originality and innovation, relevance, quality, contribution to the ISSW motto: “Research for Practice – Practice for Research”). General information about the ISSW and guidelines on how contributions should look like can be found on the ISSW 2018 homepage (https://www.issw2018.com/) and soon on the ISSW 2020 homepage. For questions and submission of contributions please contact info@oegsl.at directly and note the following dates:

  • Submission for the YSP Award (by mail, informal – title & abstract – 350 words) until December 31, 2019
  • The best contributions will be invited to a short lecture in February-Semmelnar (February 3rd, 2019)
