Update on 11th Nordic Conference

Due to continued uncertainties in relation to the COVID-19 situation, together with ongoing negotiations with potential publishers of the proceedings, we have decided to postpone the conference to April/May 2022.

We want to make sure that all formalities are in place before making any promises and raising expectations that we might not be able to live up to.

We hope that this decision will provide the best basis possible for the conference, and hope for your understanding and continued support.

A revised schedule and call for papers will be released shortly.

Postponement of 11th Nordic Conference on Construction Economics and Organisation

The 11th Nordic Conference on Construction Economics and Organisation will be postponed due to the current COVID-19 situation.

Organised by CREON, the conference was originally planned for 17-19 May 2021 in Copenhagen, Denmark. After careful consideration, the event has been postponed to end-November 2021 in Copenhagen.

The CREON conference series has always valued the informal and social face-to-face meetings between researchers as much as the formal academic publishing.

Due to the uncertain outlook of being able to host a physical conference due to the COVID-19 situation, the CREON board has made the difficult decision to postpone the conference.

The new date  for 11th Nordic Conference on Construction Economics and Organisation will be end of November 2021.

The specific dates, including information on paper submission and publishing, will be released shortly. We apologise for any inconveniences this may have caused, but hope to see you all in Copenhagen in November 2021. 

More information will be available at soon. If you have any inquiries please do not hesitate to contact the conference organisers.
