We invite you to submit an abstract for consideration for the 2nd International Conference on Future Technologies for Wind Energy on October 19-21, 2015, in London (Ontario), Canada. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Advisory Board members and selected abstracts will be assigned to appropriate sessions for presentations.

Abstracts should be no longer than two pages including figures and references. The abstract should be prepared in accordance with the template provided and submitted to WindTech2015@windeee.ca by August 7, 2015.

Abstracts related to all areas of wind energy technology are sought. A focus for this conference will be testing (field and controlled conditions) and the instrumentation used for such tests.  Abstracts concerning field and wind tunnel/laboratory experimental methods, instrumentation, and the use of measurements for validation are particularly encouraged. Session topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

National and international overviews

  • Support and funding strategies
  • National/international campaigns
  • Field testing facilities

Wind resource & full scale testing

  • Remote and in situ measurements
  • ABL and freestream measurements
  • On- and off-shore/complex terrain
  • Model development/validation needs

Wind Tunnel and field measurements

  • Flow field and wakes
  • Steady and unsteady aerodynamics
  • Scaling issues
  • Reconciling models and measurements
  • Unique facilities and instrumentation

Control and performance

  • Wind turbine and wind farm control
  • Fatigue and extreme loads
  • Aeroacoustics
  • Structural health/condition monitoring

Components and Materials

  • Blade/drive train/generators
  • Blade materials, components and manufacturing
  • Future materials
  • Multi-scale testing: laminates and structures
  • Environmental effects on components
  • Defects and damage

Analysis and design methods for wind turbines

  • Full-scale and sub-structural testing
  • Foundation and tower design

Enabling technologies for wind energy integration

  • Grid connectivity issues for wind energy
  • Wind energy technologies for off-grid applications
  • Policy issues for promotion of wind energy
  • Wind farm design
