The 9th Asia-Pacific Conference on Wind Engineering

Organised by the University of Auckland in Association with the Australasian Wind Engineering Society, the 9th Asia-Pacific Conference on Wind Engineering, APCWE-IX aims to provide a knowledge platform for exchanging state-of-the-art research findings and practical applications in all areas of wind engineering, and to further enhance international collaborations.

Submissions are now open; we're welcoming short papers for oral presentations to be included in the programme and proceedings. The conference themes are wide-ranging and cover all aspects of wind engineering, including wind energy. In order to assist with the review process, we ask you to identify one of the following themes in your paper submission:

  • Aeroelasticity
  • Bluff body aerodynamics
  • Bridge Aerodynamics
  • Cable Aerodynamics
  • Computational Wind Engineering
  • Environmental Dispersion and Pollution
  • Experimental Modelling and Wind Tunnel Testing
  • Field Measurements
  • High-Rise Buildings
  • Indoor Air Quality and Ventilation
  • Information Technology in Wind Engineering
  • Large Span Structures
  • Low-Rise Buildings
  • Vehicles and Sports
  • Wind Characteristics
  • Wind Codes and Standards
  • Wind Energy and Applications
  • Wind Hazard Assessments
  • Wind-Induced Human Comfort
  • Wind-Induced Response and Damping
  • Wind Loading
  • Other Wind Engineering

Submission details

Authors are required to submit three items:

  1. A title (up to 15 words) in the Title Box on the online submission form
  2. An abstract, up to 200 words long, in the Abstract Box on the submission form
  3. A short paper, up to 4 pages long, using the template provided here
  4. Submit your paper here

Particular attention should be given to the formatting style used in this template. Papers that do not conform to this style will NOT be published. To prepare your paper, download the template and start typing your paper in it. Invited Keynote papers may be up to 10 pages long, and use the same template.
