Wake Conferences

In the last decade the research in wake and wind farm interaction has greatly intensified. These fields of research are becoming increasingly important as larger and larger wind farms are built and as they are being built closer to each other. Adding to the intriguing physics of wake and wind farm interaction is that many of the new wind farms are being erected in sites located in complex terrain. The increasing importance of the field is also evident from the increasing number of publications and new groups working on the topic.

The organizers of the conference have an established tradition of bringing together researchers in this field. Before 2010 smaller seminars were organized to allow parties interested in wakes and wind farm interaction to discuss matters of importance for the field, and in 2011 the first wake conference was held at Gotland University and aim is to host a wake conference every second year.
