10th UK Conference on Wind Engineering

The 10th UK Conference on Wind Engineering WES-2012 will be held at the University of Southampton from 10th to 12th September 2012.

The conference will explore and discuss developments, projects, and techniques applied to the field of wind engineering. Interest in these conferences is strong, typically attracting over sixty delegates, including several from overseas reflecting the widespread expertise and interest in the topic world-wide.
The format of the conference will include invited lectures to review key areas and stimulate discussion within the sessions. Other papers will be selected for presentation by the Scientific Committee. Link to the preliminary programme.

The UK Wind Engineering Society has organised biennial conferences since 1992, and they have developed a well-deserved reputation for being friendly and informative meetings. The conferences have a proudly held tradition of welcoming new delegates and speakers, especially encouraging young engineers, designers and scientists to take part and present new ideas. They provide a forum where information can be exchanged and advice sought freely, in a friendly and constructive atmosphere.
