Project and Construction Management Conference (in Turkish abbreviated as PYYK) was formerly held in Ankara, İzmir, Eskişehir and Antalya. The 5th conference was organized as an international conference, entitled as International Project and Construction Management Conference (IPCMC) and it was first held in Cyprus. The 6th International Project and Construction Management Conference (IPCMC 2020) would have been held in Istanbul, but due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s conference is organized as a fully virtual conference.
In order to prepare IPCMC 2020, the organizing committee, the reward assessment committee, reviewers, authors and presenters have made a lot of efforts and contributions. We are very grateful for the support and participation of our Construction Management community. We could not have pulled off this convention without all of your hard work and dedication.
Since their inception, IPCMCs have been attracting many delegates from all over the world. This year’s conference consisted of 2 keynote speeches, from USA and Hungary, has received 234 abstracts. After a thorough review process, 139 papers of 271 authors/co-authors from 20 different countries were accepted and published in the conference proceedings.
We sincerely hope that the academic community and industrial practitioners will continue to support us in our attempts to provide even more meaningful conferences with numerous critical idea exchanges, diverse opportunities for fruitful networking and future collaborations between the delegates.
Hoping to meet in much healthy and joyful days, in the future.
