The 2022 Australasian Road Safety Conference (ARSC 2022) Organising Committee is pleased to announce the opening of the Call for Abstracts. We invite researchers and practitioners to submit Extended Abstracts for oral and poster presentations, or a proposal for a symposium.
ARSC 2022 will bring together road safety stakeholders and decision-makers from Australasia and international jurisdictions to facilitate collaboration and information sharing.

ARSC 2022 is brought to you by the Australasian College of Road Safety and Austroads in conjunction with Trafinz, 28-30 September 2022, in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand and online to accommodate delegates from anywhere in the world.

ARSC 2022 will be a highly accessible hybrid experience face to face (F2F) and virtually, with content delivered live and on-demand. The hybrid format allows for participation by researchers and practitioners from around the world. As a conference presenter you will nominate how you wish to present, either F2F or virtually.
