Welcome to one of the biggest, and most significant Nordic conferences related to avalanche safety and outdoor activity, this year to be held at Oppdal 3-5 November.
We are proud and happy to announce this Call For Papers, and encourage everyone, including professionals, researchers, recreationists and affiliates to contribute to this important exchange of ideas and experiences. This bi-annual conference will facilitate an interdisciplinary working space and meeting ground, where we will continue the discussion and development of the discourses within these communities. Join and partake!
The main theme for this year’s conference is Responsibility. This is a wide-ranging theme that works as a backdrop for the symbiotic web that intertwines interests and inputs from all the contributing fields. The theme is of essential importance to all approaches to avalanche safety and outdoor activity – and is somewhat what connects us all to A COMMUNITY.
The theme includes, but is not limited to; how amateurs and professionals behave in their recreational practice and activity, the development and communication of avalanche warnings, infrastructural responsibilities such as evacuation and traffic issues, dilemmas of voluntary risk and rescue practices, educational methods and facilitations, as well as the many questions of responsibility that arises as part of the growing availability, commercialization and industrialization of outdoor activity in avalanche prone terrain.
Through a range of presentation formats, Skredkonferansen offers an arena that facilitates direct interaction and open discussions between presenters and audience. You can present posters, at roundtables, or of course through the traditionally preferred presentation on-stage. All interested parties are welcome to contribute; amateurs, professionals and stakeholders. We want an interdisciplinary and contextual dialogue between all parties that bring interesting voices to the ongoing conversation.
