14th Americas Conference on Wind Engineering; May 17-19, 2022 - Lubbock, TX; National Wind Institute - Texas Tech University

Welcome to the
14th Americas Conference on Wind Engineering
to be held in Lubbock, Texas!

The Americas Conference on Wind Engineering (ACWE) is one of the premier international conferences for the wind engineering community. The National Wind Institute (NWI) at Texas Tech University (TTU) is proud to host the 14th ACWE in Lubbock, Texas.

We intend to build on the success of previous conferences, but also expand the agenda to promote a more diverse collection of synergistic research activities. The 14th ACWE will provide an opportunity for physical scientists, engineers, social scientists, architects, economists, data scientists, and practitioners to explore the convergent linkages between windstorms, engineering research, and social, behavioral and economic outcomes. Wind energy research will also be included.
