The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention is the primary international event on this topic, attracting delegates from more than 20 countries. It is designed to bring participants – from academia, industry and government – up-to-date on the developments and trends in the field of inattention and distraction in driving. The conference features keynote speakers, plenary and parallel sessions, poster exhibition and a panel dialogue with various experts, representing various disciplines in this line of research. Networking is also an important part of the conference and we are looking forward to host the most recent and relevant research dialogue together with experts from all around the world to move forward with our common challenge to save lives in traffic. For the DDI2022-edition of the conference will also get the opportunity to join the conference virtually, if you prefer to not travel this time.
The conference research topics include theory, measurement, effects, crash risks, and prevention/mitigation related to distraction and inattention in the traffic system. Driver distraction is our main focus, but we also welcome research about other road users, such as pedestrians, bicyclists and users of new modes of transports like electric scooters. More practical aspects of distraction and inattention, including education, road design, legislation and stakeholder coordination are also in the scope of the conference.
For a description of the general scope of the DDI conference and the focus topics for DDI2022, please see here;
All conference papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two international experts on driver distraction and inattention, all of whom are members of the conference’s Scientific Committee. We co-operate with the high impact factor scientific journal Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour and the authors of the best abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper to a special issue of the journal. Accepted papers (after TRF’s review process) will be published in a standard TRF issue, then compiled in an online special issue.
DDI2022 follows successful conferences in the DDI series held previously in Gothenburg, Sweden (2009, 2011, 2013, 2018), Sydney, Australia (2015), Paris, France (2017) and online (2021).
The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention is hosted and co-organised by the SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre at Chalmers in Sweden, the Université Gustave Eiffel, France and the University of New South Wales, Australia.
We are very pleased to welcome you to this important international road safety event!
