Presentation by Georg W. Reinberg about the project made together
with Roland Meingast was excellent and convincing.

Dirk had a nice poster at the most visible place.

I mentioned the need to split each bale into three convection cells at the
last page of my poster (devoted to windows otherwise, see ev.
http://amper.ped.muni.cz/jenik/windows/9pht, my images from
Passivhaustagung are there as well now).

We spoke about it with prof. Reinberg. I hope that even subsequent
injection of e.g. cellulose fibres into existing SB walls will be able to
improve them to passive standard when needed (i.e., when the projected
heating would appear to be insufficient otherwise).

Josef Seidl had a lecture on newly developed loadbearing unburnt bricks.
I mentioned to him an alternative niche for clay, namely creating two
loadbearing layers inside a strawbale (the main problem would be drying
these layers).

If a heavy ``passive-house brick'' can be made this way, that's a
