As Europe moves towards decarbonisation and a green recovery, fresh ideas and approaches to renewable technology have never been more crucial. This year’s edition will be bringing together leading experts in the analysis of operating wind farms and resource assessment. In addition to the traditional topics, we will have a special focus on Artificial Intelligence, strategies for digitalisation and wind power forecasting.
Programme development timeline
10 December 2020 – 28 February 2021: Call for abstracts.
March 2021: Abstracts review.
April 2021: Authors to be notified of selection.
April-May 2021: Programme published.
Call for abstracts
The deadline to submit your abstracts is Thursday 28 February.
The outcome of the call for abstracts will be communicated by the end of April 2021. This edition of the workshops will bring together the experts of Analysis of Operating Wind Farms, Forecasting and Resource Assessment. Some sessions will also address topics on artificial intelligence and digitalisation strategies.
General requirements – for all topics
Innovative content: abstracts should contain new work, not yet published.
No commercial content please: overtly commercial abstracts will be rejected.
Contribution to industry knowledge: abstracts should strive to present data or results that can contribute to bringing the industry forward.
The correct topic should be selected to ensure correct scoring. The content of the abstract must be topic related. It is the responsibility of the submitter to ensure that abstracts are submitted under the correct topic. The programme committee is aware that some of the topics might overlap with one and another, it will be taken into account when reviewing and during the build-up of the programme. In the meantime, please select the category that would be closer to your abstract.
