The purpose of the SMoS library is to provide easy access to must-read literature on the subject of surrogate measures, with particular focus on the older publications that might exist only in paper form but are still highly relevant. We recommend also browsing the materials of the previous conferences as relevant contributions are frequently found there, too.

First workshop on traffic conflicts
26–27 September 1977, Oslo, Norway
The original traffic conflict definition suggested by one of the working groups during the workshop was formulated as:
“A traffic conflict is an observable situation in which two or more road users approach each other in space and time to such an extent that there is a risk of collision if thier movements remain unchanged”.
It can be found on p. 135 of the Proceedings.
