Conference Proceedings
Only papers that are presented will appear in the official proceedings of the conference. These proceedings will have ISBN and DOI numbers, and be available on library electronic databases.

Journal publication
The conference organisers are discussing a possible special issue of selected papers in one of the Wind Engineering Journals. Further details will be provided when details are confirmed.

Student Support
APCWE-IX is looking to provide financial assistance, in the form of registration fee relief,  to attend this conference. All students who submit a paper by the submission deadline can apply for this funding, by ticking the required box during the submission process (when you set up your contact details).
