Welcome to the Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference 2013


We are delighted to invite you to attend the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference to be hosted in Brisbane from August 28 to 30, 2013.
This conference is the premier annual road safety conference in Australasia, as it brings together leading researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from Australasia and overseas to share knowledge about best practice in road safety.
The theme of the 2013 conference is “vision, action, results”. The National Road Safety Strategy outlines an ambitious vision for road safety, and the conference will focus on the actions required to achieve these results, including presentations on the results of the latest evaluations and strategies that have contributed to reduced road trauma. There will be a focus on the evidence we currently have available, and how everyone with an interest in road safety can work together to achieve the targeted reduction in serious casualties.
The conference program will cover all areas of road safety, with the program to reflect the Safe Systems approach adopted in the National Road Safety Strategy. The conference will include sessions on safe roads and roadsides, safe speeds, safe vehicles and safe road users, and a variety of other sessions that showcase the broad scope of work being conducted in the road safety field.
The conference theme will be explored in the keynote and concurrent presentation sessions, and more interactive sessions designed to generate outcome focussed debate about the way forward for road safety. 
Who should attend
This is a multidisciplinary conference. Participation is encouraged for anyone with a passion for road safety, including researchers, practitioners and policy-makers from different areas such as:
  • behavioural sciences;
  • education and training;
  • emergency services;
  • engineering and technology;
  • health and rehabilitation;
  • justice and law enforcement;
  • local, state and federal governments;

The 20th International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety (ICADTS) Conference (www.t2013.com) will be held immediately prior to the RSRPE13 conference at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
First held in 1950, the triennial international ICADTS conferences have achieved a long-standing and well-regarded reputation as the leading international meeting in the field of alcohol, drugs and traffic safety. We anticipate the consecutive staging of these dynamic road safety conferences will lead to increased delegate numbers and maximised returns for the conferences’ sponsors and exhibitors.
