EEDAL 2021, Toulouse (France), 8-10 November 2021 (GEN - 1184.00)

Call for papers until 22 January 2021

GEN - 1184.00. After two events outside Europe (2017 USA, 2019 China), the 11th International Conference on Energy Efficiency in Domestic Appliances and Lighting (EEDAL) conference returns to Europe in 2021. In 2021, EEDAL will be organised jointly with the International Symposium on Science and Technology of Lighting and will take place from 8 to 10 November in Toulouse, France.


EEDAL provides for an international dialogue between the key players in the residential building sector, including appliances, HVAC and lighting manufacturers, residential energy efficiency experts and academia, service providers, consumer organisations, retailers and policy makers.

In the past, it has proven for several industries, also in the non-domestic sector, a good networking occasion. It is useful for informal contacts to some of the European Commission staff and international authorities and authors of studies preparing various legislations, especially in the field of Ecodesign.

In view of the rapid developments (Ecodesign, labelling, public procurement, energy performance of buildings, etc.) not only in Europe but also globally members could use this platform to voice their opinions and proposals on specific issues by submitting papers for this event.


Authors interested in submitting papers are requested to send an abstract not exceeding 400 words in length and not less than 200 words by 22 January 2021. The instructions for authors for submission procedure can be found in GEN – 1184.01.

By 26 February, authors will be notified as to whether their abstracts have been accepted or rejected. The authors should then submit their draft papers, that will be commented upon by 26 June.

The conference itself in Toulouse will run from 8 to 10 November 2021.

Recommended Actions

Members (e.g. air conditioning, fan, heat pump manufacturers) with an interest in the global market can make use of this opportunity to highlight their views. It could be appropriate for those Product Groups that are subject to international competition and where information on Ecodesign requirements and related standards are available.

For this edition, the topics ‘Indoor Environmental Quality’ and ‘Motors’ have been added and may present opportunities for presentations.
