PowerSkin Conference 2022 – Call for abstracts

PowerSkin Conference 2022 – Call for abstracts

On behalf of the scientific committee we are pleased to invite you to the PowerSKIN Conference, which is going to be held as virtual venue on Thursday, 8th December 2022.


The conference aims to discuss the future role of building skin to achieve carbon neutral building stocks.

This year’s conference focuses on the building fabric with its environmental potential to unlock. It is increasingly important to integrate the environmental dimension of material and construction into the design phase.

This is done particularly by considering the energy and emissions linked to the fabrication of the building fabric and furthermore its ability for reuse and recycling.

For this reason, the PowerSKIN Team has chosen the theme

“Build in stock – renovation strategies: inorganic, circular materials vs. organic, compostable materials”

for the 2022 conference. During the event presentations about recent scientific research developments regarding the guiding theme are showcased. Three sub topics are provided for authors to choose their field of expertise:

Envelope: The building envelope as an interface for the interaction between indoor and outdoor environment. This topic is focused on functionality, technical development and material properties.

Energy: New concepts, accomplished projects, and visions for the interaction between building structure, envelope and energy technologies.

Environment: Facades or elements of facades which aim for the provision of highly comfortable surroundings where environmental control strategies as well as energy generation and/or storage are an integrated part of an active skin.


We invite you to submit your abstract for paper publication now! The submission window has been extended until March 27, 2022. Your abstract proposal should be submitted to powerskin.klima@ed.tum.de.


Conference Hosts: Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Auer | Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Knaack | Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Schneider
