Call for papers for the 5th International BUILDAIR-Symposium ”Building and Ductwork Air-tightness“ on October 21-22 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark

Interest in highly efficient buildings has been growing steadily, with there being plans for the introduction of these on a massive scale – plans which are even being put in practice in many countries. One major challenge is to attain the air-tightness needed for highly efficient buildings in the actual field of practice, to construct the building envelope so that it remains air-tight over a long period of time and to make quality assurance common practice. At the same time, highly efficient buildings must have a ventilation concept which ensures hygienic air exchange while preventing mould and dampness and minimizing concentrations of toxins. The 5th International BUILDAIR-Symposium ”Building and Ductwork Air-tightness“ takes place on October 21-22 2010 at the Danish Technical University in Copenhagen/Lyngby, Denmark. You can now submit your papers for this conference.

The Symposium this year combines contributions from sciences and research with very practical oriented application knowledge and an intensive exchange between the participants.

The first day is up to air-tightness in sciences and up-to-date research. The practical aspects of the air-tightness issue will be presented on the second day under the title “BlowerDoor-Symposium”. The e.u.[z.] resumes the tradition of these very practical symposia which took place as national events until 2005.
