The history of the ICSC Conference

The International Cycling Safety Conference (ICSC) is a forum for researchers and experts in the field of cycling safety to exchange their knowledge and bring up new research topics or safety solutions.

The conference started as a Dutch initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, TNO, Fietsberaad (Dutch Center of expertise on bicycle policy), SWOV and Delft University of Technology. The 2018 Conference will be the 7th edition in an annual sequence.

The Conferences are organised in a way to facilitate the interaction between the participants. All conference papers are publicly available at the conference web-sites. All papers submitted for the conference will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field. Selected scientific papers from the conference are often published in a special issue of a scientific journal.
