DETAILS:
The Australasian Road Safety Conference is the largest road safety event in the Southern Hemisphere.  It is a joint venture initiative of the Australasian  College of Road Safety (ACRS), Austroads, and the George Institute for Global Health.  The ARSC Conference series is the result of the merger of Australasia’s two leading road safety conferences: The Australasian College of Road Safety Conference and the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference (RSRPE).

ARSC2016 will continue to build on the momentum and success of the inaugural ARSC2015 Conference which was held at the Gold Coast, Queensland last month. ARSC2015 was attended by 670 delegates and achieved an unprecedented level of involvement from stakeholders, policy-makers, researchers, industry and the media.

The 2016 program
With the theme of “Agility, Innovation, IMPACT”, ARSC2016 will showcase the regions’ outstanding researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and industry spanning the plethora of road safety issues identified in the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety: Road Safety Management, Infrastructure, Safe Vehicles, User Behaviour, and Post-Crash Care.  ARSC2016 will bring with it a special focus on how all stakeholders can become more agile to harness the latest research, technology and policy innovations to produce the best road trauma reduction outcomes possible.

The comprehensive 3-day program will showcase the latest: research, education and policing programs; policies and management strategies; and technological developments in the field.  ARSC2016 will feature a strong program of national and international keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, workshops and symposia.

The call for abstracts is due to close tomorrow 12 February, however it is likely that we’ll extend the deadline.  See http://australasianroadsafetyconference.com.au/abstracts/ for details.

Expected delegates
ARSC2016 is expected to attract over 600 delegates including researchers, educators, policing and enforcement agencies, practitioners, policymakers, industry representatives, and students working in the fields of: behavioural science; education and training; emergency services; engineering and technology; health and rehabilitation; policing, justice and law enforcement; local, state and federal government; traffic management; and vehicle safety.

Social program
In accord with taking these important issues to our nation’s capital, the Conference Gala Dinner will be held at Parliament House and the Welcome Reception at the Australian War Memorial.
