Welcome to ICWE2023, the 16th ICWE
International Conference on Wind Engineering

Welcome to Florence!

Florence, August 24th, 2023

Dear friends and colleagues of the Wind Engineering community, as academics, professional and corporate officers,

Welcome to Florence, Bienvenues à Florence, Willkommen in Florenz, Bienvenidos/as a Florencia !

Benvenuti/e a Firenze!

After 2 years of intense preparation and having decided to resume the ICWE as a fully on-site conference, ICWE16 is warmly welcoming You back to Europe – namely to the cradle of European Renaissance – in a few weeks from now.

We are really excited to announce You that ICWE16 has broken any previous record of attendance in in IAWE Conferences history, having reached 720 registered participants. The conference will be organized in 6 plenary sessions, 8 Minisymposia, 115 technical sessions arranged into 7 tracks each day, 3 poster sessions, accommodating 553 papers and 45 posters.
Thank You all for this great demonstration of confidence. You might be sure: we shall not delude Your trust!

Florence (with Italy and Europe) will welcome You warmly, not only because of the temperature outside: 14 years after the EACWE (2009) and 12 years after ICWE13 in Amsterdam (2011), together with its University, with ANIV (Italian Association for Wind Engineering) and CRIACIV (Inter-University Research Centre on Building Aerodynamics and Wind Engineering) communities, our city will open its treasures and cultural attractions in order to comfortably host You while attending the 16th International Conference on Wind Engineering.

Therefore, we are glad to welcome you in Florence at the downtown Congress Hall, Palazzo dei Congressi Villa Vittoria, immediately by side of the S Maria Novella (Central) train station, i.e. in the very heart of the city.

We hope you enjoy the Conference and your stay in Florence!
