Vision zero for traffic fatalities and serious injuries—research questions and challenges

24–25 October 2019

Warsaw, Poland

Local organizer: Piotr Olszewski

The conference was held in close co-operation with the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology.

Special issue

We remind the conference presenters to submit their full papers to the special ICTCT-2019 issue of the journal Transactions on Transport Sciences (ISSN 1802-9876).

Transactions on Transport Sciences is a multidisciplinary journal which focuses on the field of behavioural and social sciences in mobility, traffic safety, and sustainable transport. The journal raises the holistic and interdisciplinary approach to transport research. It is indexed in Scopus (since 02/2019 issue), ERIH PLUS, EBSCO and ProQuest.

Each paper is evaluated by two independent reviewers under supervision of the International Editorial Board. An published article is provided with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number. The journal is published as open access, free of charge for the authors.

The deadline for submissions is 31st December 2019.

Social media

The conference used the hashtags #ictct and #ictct2019warsaw for the posts in social media.
