2015 National Conference – call for papers: deadline looms
The organising committee for the 2015 National Road Safety Conference is reminding people that the deadline for papers from anyone interested in presenting at the event is Friday 1 May 2015.
The 2015 National Conference is being held at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on 18-19 November. The event is co-sponsored by AA DriveTech, Colas, Pepsico and Vysionics.
While the themes for the conference sessions have not been finalised, the agenda is likely to include:
• Presentations from senior road safety professionals (team leaders/heads of unit) explaining how they have adapted the way they deliver road safety services against a backdrop of shrinking resources and finances. Presentations may cover income generation, sponsorship/ working in partnership with the private sector, using technology to develop new ways of communicating/delivering messages etc
• A review of the safety implications of encouraging people to use more sustainable methods of travel, and initiatives to enhance the safety of vulnerable road users including pedestrians, cyclists and children.
• A review of the latest developments and innovations in road safety engineering.
In addition the main conference programme will include a ‘topical topics’ session, and as last year there will be a fringe programme for which all relevant presentations will be considered.
Anyone interested in presenting at the conference should submit a brief overview of their proposed presentation by email to Nick Rawlings. Alternatively, for more information or an informal chat contact him on 01379 650112.
