If you are yet to visit the beautiful city of Sydney, then the 2018 Australasian Road Safety Conference (ARSC2018) is the ARSC conference for you! The Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS) & Austroads, and our co-Chair organisations ARRB and Transport & Road Safety Research (TARS) at UNSW, invite you to attend the largest road safety-dedicated conference in the Southern Hemisphere. ARSC2018 will be held in Sydney on the banks of the vibrant Darling Harbour at the beautiful Sydney International Convention Centre complex, from Wednesday to Friday 3-5 October 2018.
With a theme of “Towards Zero: Making it Happen!”, ARSC2018 will showcase the regions’ outstanding researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and industry spanning the plethora of road safety issues identified in the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety:
- Road Safety Management;
- Safe Vehicles;
- User Behaviour, and
- Post-Crash Care.
ARSC2018 will bring with it a special focus on engaging all levels of government and community, from the city to the bush, to move Towards Zero. The comprehensive 3-day scientific program will showcase the latest:
- Policing programs;
- Policies and management strategies;
- Technological developments in the field;
- National and international keynote speakers;
- Oral and poster presentations;
- Expansive stakeholder exhibition; and
- Workshops and interactive symposia.
ARSC2018 is expected to attract between 600-800 delegates including researchers, policing and enforcement agencies, practitioners, policymakers, industry representatives, educators, and students working in the fields of behavioural science, education and training, emergency services, engineering and technology, health and rehabilitation, policing, justice and law enforcement, local, state and federal government, traffic management, and vehicle safety.
Please join us in Sydney in October 2018 to help us all to maintain this positivity and momentum – there is so much more that all of us are capable of, especially when we are working in a collaborative and supportive environment such as the one that was evident at ARSC2017.
