The Czech Republic came under the state of emergency on Monday 5th, 2020 (2 days before the conference). Mass-attendance events were restricted and the conference cannot took place in Roznov pod Radhostem, unfortunately. The reason for the state of emergency was the worsening SARS-CoV-2 epidemic.

The Organizing Committee had to respond to this unfavourable situation (force majeure) and took following measures in a high time pressure:
- the conference has been moved to Brno,
- all the foreign participants were invited to take part in virtual way (MS Teams) due to the existing travel restrictions.

Under these unusual conditions, the Editors of the 2020 edition has decided to do not realize keynote lectures, instead to organize an extended virtual introductory session involving general conference topic: sustainability in construction.

Despite the lack of the time and restrictions that prevented us to organize the event in full range and in traditional way, we hope that all the participants have enjoyed the conference at least in online mode. For your memories, we are providing you a few photos. Thank you for understanding and your support during these hard times. We hope to meet you soon when travelling become save again!

The aim of PBE is to disseminate original scientific and research papers. The conference itself provides a forum for discussion and debate relating, but not limited to, all areas of economics and management of sustainable construction & water and landscape engineering. PBE is effectively positioned as a biennial multi-disciplinary international conference. In order to guarantee the quality of contributions, all papers to be published are subject to a double blind peer review process.

Papers will be published as the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science serial volume, where the series are indexed by Scopus and available in OPEN ACCESS.

 Selected best papers will be published in following indexed journals:

All these journals provide OPEN ACCESS to their content so that authors will enjoy high visibility of their contributions among the research community.
