The 4th American Association for Wind Engineering Workshop (4AAWE) will take place in Miami FL during August 14-16, 2016. The 4AAWE workshop will be a 3-day event that will include keynote lectures, technical presentations and social activities. The location of the workshop is in the heart of Coconut Grove, which is the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood of Miami. The area features plenty of open-air and street side restaurants, cafes, parks and the municipal marina. The workshop venue hotel is Sonesta Coconut Grove which is a 5-minute walk from Barnacle Historic State Park and CocoWalk shopping and dining area, 2.4 miles from Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, and 4.3 miles from downtown Miami.

The workshop will begin on Sunday, August 14th with a welcome reception event, held at the Wall of Wind facility at Florida International University. A full day of presentations will follow on August 15th. The conference dinner will be held at 7pm on August 15th. The event will end in the afternoon of Tuesday, August 16th.


The 4AAWE workshop is an excellent opportunity for interaction between engineers, faculty, students, scientists, architects, planners and practitioners in the various fields of wind engineering and related disciplines. Members and non-members of the AAWE are welcome to attend and/or present at the workshop. Topics covering all areas of wind engineering will be accepted for presentation at the workshop. Students should use this informal setting to present their research and receive feedback from attendees.

Those interested in presenting papers at 4AAWE are invited to submit an abstract of at least 150 words and less than one page (for instructions see the Abstract/Paper Management tab). The deadline for the abstract submission is June 30 and the confirmation of acceptance will be sent shortly after. Authors with accepted abstracts are highly encouraged to submit a short paper (6 to 8 pages) by July 29.
