Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow, Scotland Date: Monday 20th April to Thursday 23rd April 2015 This is the sixth of the biennial international conferences on Wind Turbine Noise. Many of us thought, when Geoff Leventhall opened his first conference in Berlin in 2005, that by 2015 all the noise issues with wind turbines would have been solved and the conferences would no longer be necessary. The opposite is true and last year’s conference, held unusually outside Europe, attracted nearly 200 . . .
