Call for Pa­pers


Call for Pa­pers is closed now!

Thank you for sub­mit­ting a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing and ex­cit­ing ab­stracts!

Ab­stracts could be sub­mit­ted on the top­ics be­low. These top­ics of­fer con­nect­ing factors, but the Call for Pa­pers is al­ways open to all con­tri­bu­tions that show how the Pass­ive House de­term­ines and ad­vances as key to sus­tain­ab­le build­ings on our way to a com­mon fu­ture.

Re­gard­less of the pan­dem­ic, eco­nom­ic or polit­ic­al situ­ation, we would like to give the chance to all speak­ers and par­ti­cipants to take part from around the world and get in touch and ex­change ideas. This year present­a­tions can also be giv­en as video lec­tures.

What hap­pens next?

After re­ceiv­ing your ab­stracts our Sci­en­tif­ic Ad­vis­ory Board will de­cide on the con­tri­bu­tions sub­mit­ted. At the Ad­vis­ory Board meet­ing, 80 con­tri­bu­tions will be se­lec­ted on the basis of a rank­ing. The speak­ers are ex­pec­ted to be in­formed about the ac­cept­ance of their ab­stracts from Novem­ber 2022 and the con­fer­en­ce pro­gramme will sub­se­quently be pub­lished on our web­site.
