Authors who submitted abstracts will be notified of the Scientific Committee’s decision by the end of March 2016.

If accepted, extended abstracts will be required by June 30th, 2016. They must be prepared in the required format to enable them to be bound together as a unified collection in the Proceedings. An Extended Abstract Template will be provided to accepted authors in MS Word format.

Two types of presentation will be included in the conference:


A normal, full paper that can be presented in a 20-minute slot. This type of full paper is suited to a complete project or one where substantial conclusions can be drawn and presented to the delegates. Accepted authors must prepare a 4-page extended abstract for publication in the conference proceedings that will be handed to delegates at the conference.


A paper that will be displayed as a poster on display boards for delegates to read during breaks. There will be no scheduled presentation for poster papers. This type of paper is typically suited to an ongoing piece of work that is not complete, or a small piece of work that is nevertheless of interest to wind engineers. Accepted authors can still have their extended abstract published in the conference proceedings that will be handed to delegates at the conference.

Draft Programme

The Scientific Committee have been impressed with quality and range of the abstracts submitted, allowing us to prepare an exciting and full programme of papers for the conference. A PDF copy of the draft programme can viewed and downloaded from the link below.

Please note that this programme is subject to change and is provided to give an indication of the range of papers to be presented. In particular, at this stage authors should not rely on their paper being at the time shown when making their booking. We will do our best to finalise the programme as early as possible but there is always a small risk of changes due to author withdrawals or a need to accommodate a keynote speaker, for example.
