WESC 2019 aims to offer a multidisciplinary open forum for discussion where delegates can discuss the latest wind energy related scientific developments, projects, challenges and results. We aim to achieve this goal as follows:
1 Page Abstract
20 Minute Presentation Slot
Paper in Special Edition of Journal of Wind Energy Science
Abstracts – A single page abstract will be submitted by delegates outlining the topic which they wish to discuss in an area related to one of the WESC Themes. This abstract will be reviewed by 2 of their peers and if successful, the delegate will be offered a presentation slot. We aim to provide a low barrier to participation and to provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss ongoing work.
Presentations – Presentation slots at WESC 2019 will be of 20 minutes in duration. Mostly this will be used for 15 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of questions, however, delegates are encouraged to be creative with how they use their time towards the goal of providing an open forum for discussion.
16:9 or 4:3 presentation format are acceptable. All PC that will be used have PowerPoint installed. Other formats may be compatible, but this cannot be guaranteed. Internet access will be available on all presentation PC but software installation rights are restricted.
Papers – After the conference, delegates will be invited to submit, within six months, a paper based on their work to a special edition of the Journal of Wind Energy Science. This paper will go though the normal JWES review process.
Mini-Symposia – A key part of the WESC philosophy is to allow delegates the opportunity to shape the conference and set the agenda. Thus, all delegates are invited to submit titles for Mini-Symposia. You can read more about how to propose a Mini-Symposia and what is involved in organising one here.
