The annual symposium followed by the general assembly of the Swiss Society for Meteorology (SSM) was held on Friday, 27 November, 13:30 - 18:00.

Symposium & General Assembly 2017

This event was held online via the video-conferencing software Zoom. The symposium offered an exciting variety of presentations.
