Contribute to the AAAM 2021 Conference Program.
Do you have research on reducing injuries from road traffic crashes? We want to hear from you! 

Short Comms, Posters, Student Symposium – Coming soon: open in February 2021
Deadline for submission: April 10, 2021

The 65th AAAM Annual Conference will be held October 19 – 22, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. (Note: AAAM is exploring hybrid options for this conference. This means it may be possible for accepted presenters to attend virtually.) This host city celebrates our organization’s early ties with the automotive racing industry. The goal of the AAAM annual conference is to present the best new scientific research in all areas of road and traffic safety.

The AAAM’s Scientific Program Committee (SPC) invites abstracts that cover all aspects reflected in the Haddon Matrix and the Five Pillars of the United Nations (UN) Decade of Action (not limited to #1 Road Safety Management; #2 Safer Roads and mobility; #3 Safer Vehicles; #4 Safer Road Users; and #5 Post-Crash Response). We also encourage submissions that support the focus of our special interest groups including child, pedestrian, autonomous vehicle safety, and road safety in low- and middle-income countries.

Accepted papers that complete the peer review process will be published in Traffic Injury Prevention.

All fields of study addressing AAAM’s mission are encouraged to submit, including but not limited to: physicians, engineers, policymakers, psychologists, statisticians, sociologists, AIS specialists, and other researchers.
