Short Course


The conference will open with a one-day graduate-level short course in IHCantabria headquarters located at the Cantabrian Technological Park. The IHCantabria auditorium, with a capacity for 175 people, will be used for that purpose. It will be featuring guest lecturers focusing on recent developments and innovations on experimental modeling. The short course will be divided in two sessions. Morning sessions will focus on new trends in wave generation and absorption and measuring techniques. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to best practices to perform new generation laboratory experiments. Both sessions will be oriented to PhD students and young re- searchers with the aim of increasing their capabilities on experimental modeling. Lectures will be devoted to ocean energy, nature based solutions and experimental tests on large infrastructures. The following table contains information about topics to be covered in the short course and potential speakers.
