International Traffic Safety Conference

Doha, Qatar, 26 November 2018 - 27 November 2018

Under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani, the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior for the State of Qatar, Qatar University and the Ministry of Interior Qatar together with IRF (Geneva) are pleased to present the International Traffic Safety Conference 2018 (ITSC 2018) which will take place on 26 and 27 November 2018 in Doha - Qatar.

The conference is under the vision “A safe road transport system that protects all road users from death and serious injury”. The concern about road safety has significantly grown over the past years in Qatar. The National Road Safety Action Plan was developed in 2013 as the first step towards achieving the ambitious vision outlined in the Qatar National Traffic Safety Strategy (2013-2022) for “a safe road transport system that protects all road users from death and serious injury”.

The International Traffic Safety Conference (ITSC) 2018 will provide the perfect national multi-track platform to highlight and discuss issues pertinent to the present and future of road safety in the State of Qatar. In addition, the ITSC 2018 will provide an opportunity to network with global leaders and researchers across all tracks of road and transportation safety. ITSC is a direct implementation of the Item “1.20” of the Action Plan, which targets the establishment of annual road safety conference for sharing of knowledge and research. The goals of the ITSC 2018 are compatible with the vision of the Qatar National Road Safety Strategy (2013-2022) in the sense that outcomes are expected to develop practical approaches and innovative solutions for enhancing the road safety performance and measures in the State of Qatar.

The Organisers of the Conference invite Experts to submit an abstract on one or several themes listed on the Call for Papers before the 1st October 2018.
