With focus on traffic safety and health, experts will present and discuss about hot topics and the latest research in the road transport area. By providing a mutual ground for sharing knowledge and a forum to discuss mutual problems and their solutions, researchers, officials and other stakeholders can learn from results, experiences and success stories.
The Organising Committee invites authors to submit abstracts related to the conference topics listed below. The Organising Committee further invites to submit proposals for special sessions.
Submit an Abstract and/or a Special Session
All abstracts and special sessions must be submitted in English via the submission website (ConfTool). Note that the RS5C abstract template or the RS5C special session template must be used. The abstract template also includes abstract instructions and formalities.
Deadline for submission of abstracts and special sessions is April 30, 2017, 11.59.59pm CET.
New for the 18th RS5C conference is that the approval for presentation at the conference is based already on the abstract. Therefore, please make sure that your abstract contains enough information for the Scientific Committee to judge the quality of your proposed presentation, including Aim, Method, Results and Conclusion. Also specify clearly if your abstract represents a finalized or an ongoing study and when final results are expected to be available if the study is ongoing.
The flow chart below shows the process from abstract submission to presentation at the conference and publication. Note that it is first when your abstract is accepted that you decide whether to submit a full paper or stay with the abstract.
Special sessions complement the formal scientific programme, providing an opportunity for presentations or extended dialogue on a selected topic and exchanges beyond what is usually possible in the regular scientific sessions. It may also offer the opportunity to present papers focused on a specific topic. A special session is typically 90 minutes long.
To propose a special session, choose "Special Session" as a topic in the submission and describe briefly your topic, motivation thereof, potential speakers and briefly how the special session should be organised. In case you would like to consult on your proposed idea prior to submission, please contact Dr. Anna Vadeby, VTI.
