About the IWWWFB
The International Workshop on Water Waves and Floating Bodies is an annual meeting of mathematicians and engineers with a particular interest in water waves and their effects on floating and submerged marine structures. Professor D.V. Evans (University of Bristol) and Professor J.N. Newman (MIT) initiated the IWWWFB following informal meetings between their research groups in 1984.
First intended to promote communications between workers in the UK and the USA, the interest and participation quickly spread to include researchers from many other countries around the world. The workshop places particular emphasis on the involvement of younger researchers, on the stimulation of discussions between engineers and scientists, and to the presentation of preliminary basic scientific work before its publication elsewhere.
