We cordially invite you to join other snow scientists and avalanche practitioners to attend this biennial International Conference celebrating "A Merging of Theory and Practice" set amidst a rich history of mining and avalanches in the spectacular San Juan Mountains. This meeting of the minds provides our unique industry with a forum in which to discuss theories, present papers and explore innovative new research topics during a five day period of interaction and conviviality.

ISSW 2006 will offer a full social agenda to complement this week of learning and enlightenment. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Ed LaChapelle has agreed to come out of retirement for an evening to deliver the keynote address at the banquet. Several other well known, and a few long-lost contributors to the San Juan Project will be in attendance to defend their name and integrity.

Traditionally, ISSW participants leave the lecture halls for a day of field observation and learning. The Telluride venue begs for a variety of field trips in to avalanche terrain which shaped the historic culture of the place and continues to govern transportation, habitation and recreational imperatives to this day.
