2016 CIECA Congress: call for papers

20 October 2015

The 48th CIECA General Assembly and Congress will take place in Madrid, Spain, on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th of June 2016. The venue for the General Assembly and Congress hosted by DGT will be confirmed very shortly. 

Preparing young people for the complex task of driving is not an easy one. Many different approaches are in use across Member States. Some require the mandatory completion of set tasks while others impose restrictions on the new driver. However, despite our collective best efforts, young people remain at a high level of risk when they initially gain their full licence.
 
We need to know which are the effective interventions to promote necessary behaviour, skills and knowledge for now, but also to prepare them for the future. The task of driving is constantly changing due to the rapid development of digitalization of society which, in turn, is also modifying the mobility of people and goods in multiple ways. This development is reflected in the increase of intelligent automation in transport, a phenomenon by which the role of the driver as performer and controller of the driving task is turning into the role of observer, passenger and possible intervener of the automated vehicle.
 
What are the necessary behaviour, skills and knowledge needed from a driver in the future? How should these drivers be tested?  
 
In order to answer these questions, abstracts are invited from potential speakers to present evidence on the effectiveness of interventions for the short term, or that can also shed light on the behaviour, skills and knowledge needed in the future, and how to prepare new drivers for the challenges ahead. Relevant abstracts might deal with issues similar to the following:

  • Training (pre-driving age training, different methods of training, post- test training, etc.)
  • Post-license restrictions
  • Post-license interventions for specific problems
  • New developments in the driving test
  • Human factors in automated driving
  • Professional drivers’ role in automated driving (platooning, etc.)
  • Changes in infrastructure (roads, signs, etc.)
  • Problems arising from mixed traffic (non-automated and automated vehicles, older and new drivers’ skills, and other participants in traffic)
  • Information and its usage (new navigation data, communication, surveillance, etc.)

Please note that the deadline for the submission of the abstracts is 11th December 2015. Information on the submission guidelines can be found here.
