Post Conference Report of Wind Turbine Noise 2007

More than 150 delegates from 24 countries around the world attended this second Wind Turbine Noise conference. It was a great sucess and the organisers would like to thanks all involved for their support and contributions. Also we would like to thank those at the venue of Grand Lyon who helped make everything run smoothly.

The short course on Noise that preceded the conference was judged to be "extremely useful" by those who attended and helped their understanding of some of the more technical papers at the conference.
