Unfortunately, the Coronavirus has come to Slovenia, too. Although the Coronavirus situation in Slovenia is not critical at the moment, the health of all the conference participants is our prior concern. We believe that in such situation there is too much uncertainty (regarding the safety and wellbeing) for the safe and successful implementation of the conference. Additionally, the Slovenian government issued a ban on indoor public events expecting over 100 visitors entering into force on March 10, 2020 (and will be in effect until further notice).

All things considered, the safest option is to postpone the conference until November 8 – 10, 2020, with the venue remaining to be the Rikli Balance Hotel in Bled. We do sincerely hope that the new date of the conference will suit you and that we will be welcoming you at Bled in November 2020.

Details related to the new dates and registration issues of the conference will be sent to registered participants and submission authors/co-authors within the next week. This conference web page will be also renewed.

The scope of the conference is to address the importance of sustainable development for our future wellbeing, given that the building and construction sector is one of the main contributors to climate change. Authors of scientific and technical papers researching these issues are invited to present their achievements.
