Welcome to the 7th International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention!

Sep, 23 2019

The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2020) is the premiere 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 current and recent developments and trends in the field of inattention and distraction in driving. DDI2020 will be held in Lyon, France, on October 12-14, 2020, and follows the six highly successful DDI conferences held previously in Gothenburg, Sweden (2009, 2011, 2013, 2018), Sydney, Australia (2015) and Paris, France (2017).

The conference topics include theory, measurement, effects, crash risks, and prevention/mitigation related to driver distraction and inattention. DDI2020 will focus on drivers disconnected from the driving task by distraction and inattention during manual, assisted and automated modes of driving.
The conference features keynote speakers, plenary and parallel sessions and special symposia – focussing on topical issues and designed to cater for the practical needs and interests of government, industry and academic delegates. All papers are peer-reviewed.

DDI2020 is organised by the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR), the University of new South Wales and SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Centre at Chalmers.

The website will be updated continuously.
