Call for Papers

Every year since 2003, the Technical University of Munich, the Universität der Bundeswehr München and the University of Applied Sciences in Munich have been inviting researchers and experts in the field of Lightweight
Design to the Munich Symposium on Lightweight Design. The Symposium aims to bring experts from both Academia and Industry together to discuss new developments, processes, and possible applications for pushing
research in Lightweight Design. This year’s Munich Symposium on Lightweight Design 2022 will take place over three days as an in-person event at the participating universities. However, the conference will be changed to a virtual format if necessary to meet the legal demands at the time of the event. Participation is free of charge. You can register here.


We invite all interested researchers and industry practitioners to present their work. Please submit an abstract of your presentation until August 24, 2022. You will be notified about acceptance by September 01, 2022. Presentations can be submitted in German or English. In addition, every accepted speaker is invited to submit a written contribution (full paper in English, 4 to 12 pages) by January 16, 2023. Submitted papers will undergo a review. You will receive a separate notification of acceptance by February 01, 2023. Accepted papers will finally be published by Springer as part of the Proceedings of the Munich Symposium on Lightweight Design 2022.
