You are invited to submit an Extended Abstract to the Australasian Road Safety Conference ARSC2020. The theme is Towards Zero – A Fresh Approach.
The Australasian Road Safety Conference is the most significant annual road safety event in our region. Every year, the conference brings together professionals from government, industry, research and general road user community to share knowledge and build networks to support our efforts to eliminate serious trauma on our roads.
We welcome submissions from everyone including practice and policy, research, policing and enforcement, education, health and medicine, law, design, media and the community.
Extended Abstract Submissions
To submit an Extended Abstract (for Oral, Poster or Symposium presentation):
Note for all Extended Abstracts: Authors requesting Full Paper extension will be notified after all submissions have been peer-review.
Symposium sessions will run for 90 minutes, and will typically include 3-4 speakers in a symposium although other formats will be considered. ARSC2020 requires speakers to submit an Extended Abstract for traditional format Symposiums with 3-4 speakers. Alternate formats may include a panel session and/or audience participation, etc. The Symposium Proposal and Speaker Extended Abstracts must be submitted by the same deadline required for the Oral Presentation stream. These sessions will be included as part of the main conference program, and will be finalised by the Conference Scientific Committee for their value in regards to contribution to the Conference and Road Safety.
To submit a Symposium Proposal:
On behalf of the ARSC2020 Scientific Committee, we are looking forward to hearing more about your work to eliminate serious trauma on our roads at ARSC2020 in Melbourne.
ACRS2020 is partnering with Monash Art, Design and Architecture (MADA) this year to link Poster Authors with final year graphic design students. This will give authors an opportunity develop high quality visual communications (e.g. infographics) of their poster content. The deadline is 10 February 2020. No extensions will be provided for those seeking MADA assistance.
All Posters will be displayed on Posters Boards in the catering area where delegates will congregate and network during morning and afternoon tea/coffee breaks and lunch for the three days. Also each Poster Author will be offered a 5 minute speed Oral presentation in one of the program’s concurrent sessions.
