Conference program


The RSS2021 Programme will cover a wide range of modern road safety topics with emphasis on the role of digitalisation on boosting road safety.

Digitalisation opens great new possibilities for road user support and guidance, evidence based public and private road safety decision-making at all levels. The new digital era offers great potential for seamless data driven procedures from safety problems identification to selection and implementation of optimal solutions.

The RSS2021 Conference will bring together researchers, experts and stakeholders from several multidisciplinary communities that are active in the field of Road Safety; from traffic and infrastructure engineers to mechanical engineers, from psychologists and human factor experts to computer science researchers. Key topics include among others:

  • Roadway Design
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Surrogate measures
  • Measures impact assessment
  • Human Factors
  • Behavioural models
  • Distraction and inattention
  • Vulnerable road users’ safety
  • Fitness to drive
  • Hazard perception
  • Education and training

  • Driving Simulation
  • Bicycle and Pedestrian simulators
  • Naturalistic Studies
  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
  • Connected and Automated vehicles
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality

  • Crash causality
  • Crash based statistical analysis
  • Big data for road safety
  • Safety data analytics
  • Safety Modelling
  • Microsimulation
  • Performance Indicators
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning

Authors can submit their papers covering any of the above road safety topics.

All papers will be presented either in plenary or parallel oral and poster sessions.

Conference proceedings will be available in electronic form and selected papers will be published in refereed journals.
