2017 International Cycling Conference: Bridging the gap between research and practice
19 Sep 2017 - 21 Sep 2017
ASTA - Physical Activity through Sustainable Transport Approaches, is organising its final conference in cooperation with the International Cycling Coference (ICC2017) in Mannheim to celebrate the invention of the “Draisine”, a velocipede which is the forerunner of the bicycle, by Karl Drais 200 years ago in the very city of Mannheim, Germany, in 1817.
The International Cycling Conference (ICC) is an interdisciplinary and international meeting organized by the German Environment Agency (UBA).
The ICC aims to bring together a better understanding of all fields relevant to the promotion of active mobility, ranging from the determinants of active mobility to the development and impacts of policies and interventions, including the role of culture and governance.
The special characteristic of the ICC is the collaboration of research and practice. The ICC will give a platform to academics and practitioners involved in research and practice related to cycling and active mobility.
ICC Conference themes
Contributions are welcome to the following themes but are not limited to them:
- (1) Determinants of cycling and walking, e.g. related to the individual transport user(s), to the transport system and the built environment, and to the social environment
- (2) Impacts of cycling and walking, e.g. on the economy, quality of life, health, safety, air pollution, noise, social inequalities and social capital
- (3) Strategies and policies for promoting cycling and walking, e.g. best practice examples and evidence from evaluation studies
- (4) Mobility cultures, e.g. social practices and meanings of cycling and walking
- (5) Governance, stakeholders and networks
- (6) Developing technologies in transport and the future impacts and contributions they may have on active mobility
Abstract submission (max. 350 words): 16 December 2016
Call for Papers and Contributions is available here.

IIID TRAFFIC & TRANSPORT FORUM 2017
23 Nov 2017 - 24 Nov 2017
The Traffic & Transport Forum 2017 in partnership with UITP will focus on the role of information design in the public domain between people, communities, public transport, standards and identity.
Ever more players are involved in providing mobility services and information: communities, public transport providers, vehicle rentals, automobile companies, apps based on crowd and open sourced data, and many more. While a seamless journey may be physically possible, providing a manageable and understandable information environment has turned into a major challenge. And it raises a number of questions:
- Who owns information (design) for mobility – designers, communities, transport providers?
- Can public authorities impose design qualities on private services?
- How can design qualities for private services be defined?
- Who moderates/advocates the design process in the public interest?
- Can communities find a balance between the urge to standardise and the need to localise?
The IIID Traffic and Transport Forum 2017 will investigate mobility services as part of community identity, how design affects the perception of a location and its visual identity. The Forum will talk about anticipating future information needs and technologies for mobility and transitions between data sources and services.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Contributions are invited from:
- Information designers
- Transport providers
- Transport authorities
- Communities and municipalities
- Data and information service providers
- other professionals who can contribute to a lively debate.
Submission deadline: 31 March 2017
Announcement of acceptance: 28 April 2017

7th European Transport Research Arena,
16 Apr 2018 - 19 Apr 2018
The Transport Research Arena TRA is THE European research
and technology biennial conference on transport and mobility.
After a decade of successful editions around Europe (2006
Göteborg, Sweden; 2008 Ljubljana, Slovenia; 2010 Brussels,
Belgium; 2012 Athens, Greece; 2014 Paris, France; and 2016
Warsaw, Poland), the 7th TRA will take place in Vienna from
16 to 19 April 2018.
Digitalisation and decarbonisation are high on the agenda of
TRA 2018 and will be reflected throughout the conference, as
the key dimensions expected to overhaul the transport system
for all stakeholders. An important aim of TRA 2018 will be to
imagine, sketch and investigate scenarios where ground-breaking
digital and low-carbon technologies are deployed and impact
on people, the transport system and the environment as we
know it will be discussed.
TRA 2018 will combine the new challenges of mobility and
logistics with still open questions of transport and infrastructure
and will cover all modes of transport: road, rail, waterborne,
aviation as well as cross-modality. Passenger and freight
transport in urban, inter-urban and long distance settings will
be considered. For the first time all modes will be integrated
to achieve a comprehensive, seamless transport system.
While presenting the most advanced research, the latest
technological and industrial breakthroughs as well as future
policies for Europe and beyond, TRA 2018 is conceived and
designed as an “arena”, where the interplay across the entire
spectrum of transport stakeholders facilitates open discussion
and exchanges and offers a unique occasion to showcase
European and international cutting edge transport research
