As the global population rises, economies become progressively motorized, and “the office” moves increasingly into fleet vehicles, providing safe and efficient transport systems is vital. Technology and engineering can provide part of the solution, but the complete answer can only come through understanding and guiding the behaviour of transport network users.
The quadrennially held international ICTTP conferences have achieved a long-standing and highly-regarded reputation as the leading international meeting in the field of traffic and transport psychology.
ICTTP2016 will be a global forum at which all those involved in traffic and transport psychology, human factors, cognition and behaviours, road safety research, policy, education, enforcement and injury prevention, can meet with researchers, academics, and professionals to discuss and present on the latest work being undertaken in these areas. The conference is expected to attract 300-350 delegates from around Australia and overseas, including academics, researchers and practitioners in the areas of public health, law, medicine, economics, law enforcement, public policy, education, human factors and psychology. ICTTP2016 is being hosted by Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) and Griffith University’s School of Applied Psychology.
With a theme of “Taking Traffic and Transport Psychology to the World”, the conference themes will provide an invaluable opportunity for a broad range of presentations, workshops, symposia and discussion, with a particular focus on geographic regions where road safety action is needed most. Our first keynote speaker has been confirmed: Dr David Strayer, Professor of Cognition and Neural Science at the Department of Psychology, University of Utah, USA will present on the latest research findings on driver distraction.
