5th Central European Symposium on Building Physics

The symposium includes invited lectures, oral presentations, and discussions on specialized topics. The objective of the symposium is to discuss the results of academic and industrial research and exchange invaluable experiences in the field of building physics:

  • Heat and mass transfer
  • Building materials and components
  • Building envelope systems
  • Building's energy performance
  • Indoor climate and human comfort
  • Hygerothermal performance/moisture
  • Air flow and pollutants transport
  • Daylight and illumination engineering
  • Building and room acoustics
  • Urban physics
  • Environmental impact and life-cycle assessment

The first meeting of CESBP was organized by Cracow University of Technology and Technical University of Lodz in September 2010 in Cracow, Poland. Subsequently, the meetings were held periodically, aiming at scientists working in the field of building physics and related topics. The conference organizers and venues were changed every three years as follows:

  • 2010 - Cracow, Poland - Cracow University of Technology, Technical University of Lodz
  • 2013 - Vienna, Austria - Vienna University of Technology
  • 2016 - Dresden, Germany - Technische Universität Dresden
  • 2019 - Prague, Czech Republic - Czech Technical University in Prague
  • 2022 - Bratislava, Slovakia - Slovak University of Technology

Venue and Accomodation

CESBP 2022 takes place in Bratislava, capital of Slovakia at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Slovak University of Technology, which is the largest schools providing civil engineering university education in Slovakia. Keeping with the tradition of excellence, today's graduates exhibit a high quality of engineering craftsmanship and skills. The academic community comprises approximately 2000 students and 440 teaching and research staff.

Bratislava - the little big city

Bratislava is the capital and largest city of Slovakia. Officially, the population of the city is about 430,000; however, it is estimated to be more than 660,000. Bratislava is in southwestern Slovakia at the foot of the Little Carpathians, occupying both banks of the River Danube and the left bank of the River Morava. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two sovereign states. Bratislava is the political, cultural and economic centre of Slovakia. It has several universities, and many museums, theatres, galleries and other cultural and educational institutions. In 2017, Bratislava was ranked as the third richest region of the European Union by GDP (PPP) per capita (after Hamburg and Luxembourg City). GDP at purchasing power parity is about three times higher than in other Slovak regions. Bratislava receives around 1 million tourists every year. (source: Wikipedia)
