The overall theme of CWW 2019 is renewable wind energy in new and changing environments – a forward look. Using this as a starting point, the conference will look at the impacts on species, habitats and ecosystems; how to approach and come up with solutions for these impacts through mitigation, habitat restoration and risk reduction; and what the future challenges and opportunities are for these new and changing environments. The topics are:
- Species-specific responses
- Cumulative impacts and assessment
- Population-level and ecosystem effects
- Mitigation technologies and design
- Habitat restoration
- Wind and wildlife in practice
- Floating wind: opportunities and constraints
- Reducing uncertainty
- Socio-ecological constraints and benefits
- Future wildlife challenges to renewable energy
- Repowering: opportunities and constraints
- Ecological implications of novel technology
- Developing countries/emerging markets
- Forward view: renewable energy in a climate changed environment
Talks will be varied in length, with long talks around 15–20 minutes, short talks around five minutes, and very short 1–2 minute summaries linked to poster presentations. Poster presentations will need to be the standard A0 size. Please make it clear when you submit your abstract what topic your talk or proposed poster is about and how long you need for the presentation.
Workshop sessions will also take place during the conference. If you would like to run a workshop based on one of the conference themes, then you can also submit an abstract. The abstract must outline the proposed theme, length of the workshop and how many people you expect to attend.
Abstract submission is now closed.
