e-Conference from Europe

Ninth International Conference on Wind Turbine Noise.

Updated 29th March 2021

Preliminary Programme Out

You can view or download the preliminary programme here.

Non-European delegates are predominantly from the Americas so we have decided to run the conference from 1300 to 1900hrs. Note that all conference timings will be in Central European Summer Time (CEST) which is UTC+2

Information about the conference can be found below and in the menu on the right - where you can see how the conference will operate.

As well as the formal papers and presentations the conference will have a range of other events that you can watch or take part in:

  • Conversations. These are informal discussions on a particular topic between two or three participants into which others can join.
  • Break-out space where you can meet other people.
  • A Keynote presentation by Kristina Conrady on the influence of low level jets and low level maxima.

Registration costs £230 (UK Pounds) but if you register before 7th 11th April you can get a reduced rate of £190. There are a limited number of places for students at £50 and if you are eligible please contact us via the contact page. UK residents and non-business individuals elsewhere will have to pay UK VAT in addition.

We have accepted 46 abstracts for the conference and you can download a list here.

Don't think because its an e-conference it will be any less important that getting together physically.

Our highly successful e-conference on Drone noise (in collaboration with CIDB) in October, means we are ready to put everything into WTN2021 with renewed confidence. Quiet Drones wasn’t like other e-conferences you’ve been to. See what delegates said about it below.

WTN2021 will be organised in the same way. Participants were an integral part of the symposium process. Importantly the e-conference allows us to be more flexible regarding the types of papers and presentations we will accept. We know that many research organisations have not been able to progress their work at the rate they would want. Likewise, consultants' activities have been curtailed and they may have less knowledge to share. We will certainly accept abstracts and full papers and presentations as normal, but we also invite anyone who feels they have insufficient for a full paper to make a presentation about, for example, the progress of their research. We also invite people to propose areas for discussion, to organise a demonstration or a brainstorming. How about a competition to design the noisiest turbine?

What people said about Quiet Drones

Marion Burgess, Past President of International INCE, said of it “I would say that it is the first e-symposium or e-conference where I consider that I have actually ‘met’, and so may communicate with in the future, some that I did not know of before”.

Other comments were that

  • “the web site was very clear and I used it a lot”
  • “extremely interesting symposium. It was a complete success”
  • “There were many great conversations over the days”.
