Welcome to WESC 2021 web conference

Wind Energy Science Conference • 25 – 28 May 2021 • from Hannover, Germany


Dear Wind Energy Scientist,
dear Colleague,

After careful consideration, we have decided with heavy hearts, to organise WESC 2021 as a web conference. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, our planning risks would have been to high, if we stuck to a physical or hybrid event with strict hygiene conditions or with necessary short-term changes.

To allow all guests to participate, including those from overseas, we will now rather use the coming time to concentrate our efforts and enthusiasm to prepare the best possible web conference from Hannover.

We ask for your understanding!


It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd edition of the Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) from Leibniz University Hannover, which will take place from 25 – 28 May 2021. The biennial WESC is an international conference initiated by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). The past conferences took place at DTU, Technical University of Denmark (Lyngby, 2017), and at UCC, University College Cork (Cork, 2019).

We are looking forward to welcoming scientists in the field of wind energy to present their latest findings and meet across traditional scientific borders. The conference covers all scientific topics in wind energy.

We invite you to present your current research by an oral presentation. Within the Call for Abstracts, you can submit your contribution either to one of the more than 70 mini-symposia or to a regular session in one of the 10 conference themes. Acceptance of oral presentations will be based on a reviewed one-page abstract.


The Call for Abstracts has been extended until January 17, 2021.

We invite you to submit a one-page abstract for a talk at WESC 2021 in one of the more than 70 mini-symposia or in a regular session within one of the 10 conference themes. You find more information on the conference themes and the mini-symposia under Programme.

The conference is organised in close collaboration with the open-access journal Wind Energy Science, and we welcome you as a speaker at the WESC to submit a full paper based on your work after the conference.  


Please let us know if you are interested to stay informed about the latest conference news.

Your contact details will be used exclusively for preparing the WESC 2021.
