Academic Road Safety Conference

THE 2017 Academic Road Safety Conference ~ 29TH AUGUST



An AIRSO Academic Conference will take place from 10am on Tuesday 29th August at Jurys Inn Hotel, Hinckley.  The cost is £60 for academics and £50 for PhD students, with a further discount for AIRSO members.

The aim of the conference is to build a community around academic road safety research, regardless of the methodological approach taken, or the discipline from which researchers come.  It is hoped that this could help to build collaborations and partnerships, to identify and successfully bid for research funding, and facilitate an exchange of ideas, with the aim of improving safety on the roads.  In order to begin to build a picture of the work currently being done in universities, we are keen to encourage as many researchers as possible to consider presenting their work.  Academics who are interested in doing so should contact Dr Lucy Rackliff as soon as possible, with a short description of their current research.

The event will also include a PhD poster competition, with a prize of £100 for the best poster, and £50 for the runner up.  PhD students who would like to submit their work should consult the poster guidelines here and complete the entry form below and email it to l.rackliff@aston.ac.uk.
