Sub­mit your ab­stract now un­til 2 March 2020!

Build­ing the fu­ture - sus­tain­ably is the slo­gan of the up­com­ing 24th In­ter­na­tion­al Pass­ive House Con­fer­en­ce in Ger­many´s cap­it­al Ber­lin. Sub­mis­sions on the fol­low­ing pri­or­ity top­ics can now be sub­mit­ted on­line un­til 2 March 2020.

Who can sub­mit an ab­stract?
The Call for Pa­pers is open to every­one! The main top­ics should of­fer con­nect­ing factors, but we are still open to all con­tri­bu­tions that show how the Pass­ive House de­term­ines and ad­vances the path to a sus­tain­able fu­ture.

We kindly ask you not to sub­mit more than two con­tri­bu­tions per per­son.

What's the pro­ced­ure?
After the dead­line for sub­mis­sions on 2 March 2020, a 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 April 2020 and the con­fer­en­ce pro­gramme will sub­se­quently be pub­lished on our web­site.

Cred­its: Fur­ther edu­ca­tion cred­it points to­wards the re­new­al of a Pass­ive House Plan­ner/Con­sult­ant Cer­ti­fic­ate will be awar­ded for sub­mis­sions se­lec­ted for the con­fer­en­ce.
