The workshop welcomes all delegates, and in particular doctoral students and early career researchers. We are delighted that the workshop is being supported through funding by the EPSRC.

We are pleased to announce that the 7th Oxford Tidal Energy Workshop, OTE2019, will be held in Oxford on the 8th and 9th of April, 2019.

OTE2019 builds on six successful workshops to provide opportunities for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss technical issues in tidal stream power generation. Since the first workshop in 2012 the workshop series has attracted over five hundred delegates, received over a hundred oral presentations and enjoyed dozens of posters. The workshop welcomes all delegates, and in particular doctoral students and early career researchers whom we would like to encourage to join us to discuss their research in a friendly yet intellectually challenging environment. Research topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Device-scale problems (hydrodynamics, design, fluid-structure interactions, etc)
  • Array-scale problems (wake interaction, array optimisation, etc)
  • Basin-scale problems (resource assessment, environmental impact, etc)
  • Novel experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches for tidal energy research
