Conference history

RS4C is a series of major international conferences on road safety and the conference was held for the first time in 1987 with the emphasis on two continents – Europe and North America.

From the first conference in 1987 until today, RS4C has been organised by the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) in coordination with supporting international establishments and organisations and in cooperation with the host countries.

Africa joined for the first time in the 2000 conference in South Africa and Asia joined for the first time in the Bangkok 2007 conference. The conference therefore now covers four continents – Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. Although the conference focused on the four continents, previous conferences also included South American and Australian participation.
