The Science of Making Torque from Wind (TORQUE 2016)

The sixth edition of the international conference “The Science of Making Torque from Wind” (TORQUE 2016) is this year’s main forum for discussion and technical exchanges on the most recent advances in the field of wind energy science.

  • One of the largest conferences in wind energy in 2016, offering countless opportunities for networking.

  • Technical program: 10 technical sessions, about 140 oral presentations and well over 200 posters (a preliminary version of the program is available here). The technical sessions are organized by leading experts in the field, and all papers have been subjected to a two-stage peer-review process (review of both abstracts and full papers).
