The 10th UK Conference on Wind Engineering WES-2012 will be
held at the University of Southampton from 10th to 12th
September 2012.

The conference will explore and discuss developments,
projects, and techniques applied to the field of wind
engineering. Interest in these conferences is strong,
typically attracting over sixty delegates, including several
from overseas reflecting the widespread expertise and
interest in the topic world-wide.
The format of the conference will include invited lectures
to review key areas and stimulate discussion within the
sessions. Other papers will be selected for presentation by
the Scientific Committee.

The UK Wind Engineering Society has organised biennial
conferences since 1992, and they have developed a
well-deserved reputation for being friendly and informative
meetings. The conferences have a proudly held tradition of
welcoming new delegates and speakers, especially encouraging
young engineers, designers and scientists to take part and
present new ideas. They provide a forum where information
can be exchanged and advice sought freely, in a friendly and
constructive atmosphere.
