ICSC 2020 conference POSTPONED

Dear Cycling Safety Friends,

It has been a hard decision to take, but in the current conditions the only right one. ICSC 2020 conference is postponed.

What are the consequences and how are we going to address them?

1. The actual conference—physical meeting—will take place on 10-12 November 2021, still in Lund.

2. Authors already accepted are automatically accepted to the ICSC 2021 program with the same contributions.

3. We will open for additional submissions during spring 2021.

4. We continue with paper reviews according to the original plan. Based on the reviews, papers will be recommended to the special issue of the Accident Analysis & Prevention journal.

5. The preparation of the special issue continues according to the original plan, too. Even though it is an unusual case, we have ‘ok’ from the editor that the special session comes out BEFORE the actual conference taking place.

6. Authors not published in the AAP special issue are free to submit their papers to any other journal. If the journal allows it, we kindly ask you to mention something like ’an earlier version of this manuscript has been reviewed and accepted at International Cycling Safety Conference 2020/21’.

7. To keep the spirit of the ICSC community, we will have an online special session on the original days of the conference. The program and instructions on how to join will come soon.

Best regards and stay safe!!!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page

ICSC 2020 has now a FAQ page. Some questions comes naturally and we receive them again and again. FAQ page is just the right place where you might find the answer directly—because someone has already been in your shoes and wondered of the same thing...

We plan to keep this page 'live', updating the contents as the situation develops.

  • Will the conference take place?
  • Will it go online?
  • Can I submit my paper after the deadline?

Go to the FAQ page and find the answers there.

SPECIAL CALL: ‘Cycling safety in pandemic time’

The pandemic we are witnessing has clearly affected all aspects of our society, not the least when it comes to transportation. Many people turned to bicycles for commuting to avoid congested public transport. Many cities support this movement by improving bicycle infrastructure, taking space from cars to make bicycle lanes and so on.

What are the safety effects of this sudden process? Do more cyclists imply more cycling accidents? Or is there safety-in-number effect in place? Do cyclists behave differently, for example keeping ‘social distance’? Do car drivers behave differently seeing more cyclists around?

ICSC opens a possibility to submit additional contribution on the topic of cycling safety in pandemic time. If you have started (or plan to start) a study related to this, consider sharing your (early) results during the conference.

Please, get in touch with the conference organisers at icsc-2020@tft.lth.se to discuss your ideas and how they can be presented during the conference.

Dear Cycling Safety friends,

Together with the Steering Committee, we had a lot of discussions on how to proceed and save the conference. As the outcome, here are the two plans we want to share with you.

Plan A. We aim at a physical event if the circumstances allow. Most probably, some of the participants, particularly from Australia and North America, will still face travel restrictions or simply want to avoid travelling. We will work on technical solutions allowing to be a remote yet still active participant. However, we do not want ICSC 2020 to become 100% virtual.

If by the end of August 2020 the travel and other restrictions are still in place with no hope for quick elimination, we will change to…

Plan B. The conference is postponed till November 2021. When this decision is taken, a lot of work on writing and reviewing the papers has already been done. Therefore, we keep what was promised regarding the handling of the papers – the special issue of the Accident Analysis and Prevention will take place (confirmed by the editor), and those who wish to publish their work on the conference website may still do so.

I hope these explanations bring some certainty in these uncertain times.

Best regards and stay safe!!!
