Welcome to WESC 2021 web conference

The WIND ENERGY SCIENCE CONFERENCE is a biennial event under the flag of EAWE (European Academy of Wind Energy). WESC 2021 as the 3rd edition of the conference is organised as a WEB CONFERENCE by ForWind and Leibniz University Hannover from 25 – 28 May, 2021.


The Call for Abstracts has been extended (for a last time) until January 31, 2021.


It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd edition of the Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) organised by ForWind and 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.

In view of the unpredictable development of the COVID-19 pandemic and after careful consideration, we have decided to organise WESC 2021 as a web conference. The hurdles for our guests to attend the conference and our planning risks would be too high, if we stick to a physical or hybrid event with strict hygiene conditions and necessary short-term changes. We ask for your understanding!
