Call for abstracts - closed -

The Call for abstracts is now closed and our Scientific Committee will evaluate all submitted abstracts. Your results can either be accepted for an oral presentation or a poster presentation on the Offshore Wind R&D Conference 2018.

Here you find the guidelines for oral and poster presentation soon.

Please note that presenters also need to pay the conference fee.
