Papers invited for 2014 National Conference

Tuesday 18th March 2014

The organising committee has issued a call for papers for the 2014 National Road Safety Conference in November 2014.

The 2014 National Conference is being held in Brighton on 25-26 November. The event is being hosted by Road Safety GB South East region and sponsored by Colas and AA DriveTech. More than 100 people have already registered to attend.

The conference committee has published themes and topics on the event website and is now inviting papers on: partnership working between road safety teams and other stakeholders; the use of social media to deliver road safety messages; and improving the safety of cyclists.

As well as the main programe there will be a fringe programme covering other road safety issues, and papers are also invited from individuals or organisations that would like to be considered for the fringe event.

Interested parties should provide a brief summary or abstract of their paper or presentation, along with brief details of the proposed presenter.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 31 March. The committee will then consider submissions during April with a view to publishing an outline agenda by the end of the month.

Submissions should be sent by email to Su Ormes, chair of the conference committee. For more information, or to discuss this informally, contact Su Ormes on 01634 331710 or Nick Rawlings on 01379 650112.

It's very simple to submit a proposal for a conference paper - all details are outlined in the article above. Pls feel free to do so if you wish.

As you reported, the DfT accepted a few months ago that Dave Finney's method of assessing speed camera benefit and how regression to the mean works is valid and worth pursuing. How about a joint presentation by Dave and me explaining this?

Great idea Nick. If I parcelled up brains, human errors and the bad apple theory into one quick presentation do you think that any of the delegates would want to see it?

How's this for a conference agenda?

Bad Apple Theory - Why it's so easy to believe and why it's so dangerous to believe in it?

Brains - Why we have one and how it works.

Human Errors - The end of a complex process, not the beginning.
