47th CIECA General Assembly and Congress:call for papers

4 December 2014

The 47th CIECA General Assembly and Congress will take place in Berlin, Germany on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th of May 2015. The Assembly and Congress hosted by VdTÜV and DVR will be held in the Leonardo Royal Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz which is situated in the Berlin City Centre.

With the motto "Acting for the future" CIECA underlines the importance of discussions about personal resources for safe driving and lifelong learning in traffic to think ahead about new proposals for the near future. Results and conclusions of different projects initiated by the European Commission give an insight into further possibilities for building up competences for safe driving.

The driving task is a complex activity. New concepts have to match the driver’s expectations, needs, experiences, background, requirements and capacities to avoid accidents and to develop competent driving skills.

A driver has to make sure that he or she meets the physical and mental requirements for fitness to drive. It is also necessary for the driver to nurture the right attitudes and behaviour to drive in a safe and responsible way.

Therefore, abstracts are invited from potential speakers to explore and review questions such as:

  • Why are personal resources important for traffic safety?
  • Do personal resources differ in stability?
  • What are the deficient resources which might support risky behaviour while driving?
  • How resistant to change are drivers with deficient personal resources?
  • How is it possible to assess personal resources?
  • How is it possible to identify deficient resources?
  • Which additional positive resources might support safe driving?

 Please note that the deadline for the submission of the abstracts has been extended until the 7th December 2014.
