Call for Short Communications & Poster Abstracts
The AAAM’s Scientific Program Committee (SPC) invites short communications and poster abstracts for the 2021 65th Annual Scientific Conference for the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine 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, and autonomous vehicle safety. 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.
The conference will be held October 19 – 22, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. 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.
