Topic list

We welcome contribution on 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
  • 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 list is non-exhaustive, but strong relevance of the submission to the subject of cycling safety is a must.

Submission types

Already at this stage, the authors should decide on the type of the conference submission they aim at. Two options are possible:

Scientific paper. A paper is expected to have a clear research question and use scientific methods to answer it. Scientific papers will go through the peer-review process done by the ICSC Scientific Committee. A selection of papers will be recommended for submission to a special issue of 'Accident Analysis & Prevention' journal.

Short technical paper. A technical paper is expected to describe practical results from projects or initiatives related to the conference topics. The length of a short paper is limited to 6 pages. The technical papers will be reviewed, too.

Presentation formats

The conference contributions can be presented orally or as a poster. You may indicate your preferred way of the presentation during the abstract submission. However, the final decision will be taken by the organizers based on the abstract review results, total number of submissions and time slots available.

Whether a submission goes for oral or poster presentation will be communicated together with the abstract acceptance decision. Oral presentation requires submission of a full paper (this goes for both scientific and short technical papers). For poster presentations, submission of a full paper is recommended, but not required.

Full scientific papers will be considered for recommendation to the special issue regardless to whether they were presented orally or as a poster.

Access to submissions & journal publications

Please, read carefully here.

Submission process

The conference submissions will be managed through the EasyChair system. If you have used EasyChair before, you can log in with the same credentials. In case this is your first time, you will need to create an account first.

Your abstract (ca 300-500 words) should include the following points:

  • Background
  • Aim
  • Method or methodological issues
  • Results obtained or expected
  • Conclusions

Please, note, that the abstract is submitted as a plain text and no pictures, HTML-formatting, etc. are possible. Do not use references unless absolutely necessary. The system will not accept abstracts longer than 700 words.

Provide 3-6 keywords characterizing your submission.

To make it easier finding reviewers with the right competence, choose which topic(s) your submission is mostly related to.

You may also choose your preferred way of the presentation during the conference (oral/poster). Note, that this is only an indication and the final decision will be taken by the organizers.

The deadline for abstract submission is extended until 21st February 2020.

Start submission

What happens next?

The decision on acceptance/rejection and presentation type will be communicated to the authors in the middle of March 2020.

The full papers (both scientific and short technical) must be submitted by 15th May 2020 and the peer-review process will start directly afterwards. The template and further instructions will be provided.

The final version of the papers (with corrections according to the received comments) must be submitted by 16th October 2020.

All presenters must register (and pay the fee) as the conference participants.
