We are glad to announce that ForWind and Fraunhofer IWES
(Oldenburg) are organizing the first symposium on OpenFOAM
in wind energy. The symposium is open to researchers in the
fields of 
-Wind turbines (as well as blades and airfoil sections)
-Atmospheric boundary layer flows
-site assessment
-Turbulence modeling in general and in CFD/OpenFOAM in
-Meshing tools and their development for simple and complex

The aim of the symposium is to get the scientists working on
these topics together, to assess the use of OpenFOAM in the
field of wind energy and to provide a venue for discussion
about future developments.

The deadline for the abstract submission has been extended
to the 31 November 2012 and the registration is now OPEN.
You can also participate to the symposium without submitting
an abstract (just to assist to the talks), for this you need
to register.

Invited talks are going to be given at the symposium. Please
check the webpage
( for the
abstracts of the invited talks.

We are also pleased to announce that the OpenFOAM German
users meeting (or Stammtisch United, see here for the
previous editions
is going to be held just after the symposium (on the 22nd of
March), also in Oldenburg. Please contact us for further
details of the participation at this meeting.
