Save the dates to the 8th International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2022)!

The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention is the primary international event on this topic, attracting delegates from all around the world. In 2022 the conference will be arranged in Gothenburg, Sweden, October 19-20. Save the dates in your agenda already now!

The conference 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.

DDI2022 follows the highly successful DDI Conferences held previously in Gothenburg, Sweden (2009, 2011, 2013, 2018), Sydney, Australia (2015), France (2017). The conference in 2021 will be held online. 

The conference 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. 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 aim to co-operate with a high impact factor journal in producing a special issue that features selected papers from the conference – information of the specific journal will be provide before abstract submission opens.

We are very pleased to welcome you to this important international road safety event!

Best regards,
