The Glenn Department of Civil Engineering at Clemson University is hosting the the 6th AAWE Workshop with a focus on student and early career presentations. The workshop will include several keynote addresses and panel discussions on non-academic wind engineering careers and future directions for wind engineering research.

The program is chaired by Nigel Kaye (Clemson University) with the assistance of a Scientific Committee who will assist in reviewing abstracts and selecting speakers and panelists.

The workshop is free to all members of AAWE, join or renew your membership if it has expired. Follow the Workshop Twitter Feed for updates.

Registration
Details on registration will be posted shortly. All presenters and attendees must be members of AAWE. The program with links to the zoom sessions will be posted and only available to members.
