Safe cycling as an integral part of the future mobility system: planning and designing for a safe interaction between road users


The International Cycling Safety Conference, ICSC, is a forum for researchers and experts in the field of cycling safety to exchange their knowledge and bring up new questions and safety solutions. In 2020, the conference will meet for the ninth time, hosted by the Lund University and the Swedish Cycling Research Centre at the National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI).

The conference will cover the following topics:

  • Causation and prevention of cycling accidents and injuries
  • Safe cycling infrastructure
  • Safe bicycles
  • Motor vehicles safe for cyclists
  • Protective devices to increase cycling safety
  • Safety-related behaviour and attitudes of cyclists and towards cyclists
  • Research methods: observation/naturalistic studies and cycling simulators
  • Safety of pedelecs and S-pedelecs
  • Single bicycle accidents
  • Education and cycling safety
  • Regulations and standards for safe cycling
  • Planning and policies for safe cycling
  • Safe cycling in the cities of tomorrow
  • Safe interaction between cyclists and connected/automated vehicles
  • Small vehicles for personal mobility: emerging trends & safety implications

The conference will be organised in a way facilitating interactions between the participants. It will offer a day of study visits and thematic workshops and two days of oral presentations and poster sessions together with an exhibition. We welcome suggestions for special sessions devoted to a certain topic, large-scale projects or other initiatives.

The submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field and a selection of them will be further recommended for publication in a special issues of 'Accident Analysis & Prevention' journal (ISSN 0001-4575).
