Call for abstracts

The Call for abstracts is open until April 27, 2018. After that, 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 guideline for the abstract.

Here you find an abstract template.
