Demystifying Complex Terrain at WESC 2019

  • News

10 researchers from across Europe and the USA presented their results to over 50 participants in the “Demystifying Complex Terrain” mini-symposium at the 2019 Wind Energy Science Conference in Cork, Ireland on 18th June 2019. The Mini-Symposium was set up and moderated by Dr. Andrew Clifton, Managing Director of WindForS.

Using these Presentations

WindForS supports the principles of FAIR research: we believe that the results from research should be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

To help make research findable and accessible we encourage participants in our events to archive copies of their presentations and other materials. They can leave them with us, or store them in repositories at their own universities and research institutions. We then provide links through to those documents.

An even better option is to use repositories that provide a DOI and link research output to researchers through the ORCID and other identifiers. This allows researchers to build up a comprehensive publications record. While there are many options, we have found that provides a good set of features for authors and users.

We ask anyone using or referencing presentations from this event to respect any licensing conditions, to acknowledge the presenters using the information provided, and to reference DOIs (where given).
