Call for Research

Contribute to the AAAM 2024 Annual Scientific Conference

 

The 68th AAAM Annual Scientific Conference will be held November 11 – 14, 2024 at the COEX Center in Seoul, South Korea. The goal of the AAAM Annual Scientific 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 any and all aspects reflected in the Haddon Matrix and the Five Pillars of the United Nations (UN) Decade of Action.

*NEW* Early Bird Short Communication Abstracts: Do you have an idea for a Short Communication but want early feedback? New for 2024, we invite authors to submit abstracts only for early review and feedback by the SPC. Early bird abstracts may be considered for full paper invitation.
