You have time until 19 May to submit your abstract. All topics for which we are seeking contributions are included in this document.

Polis is committed to make women in transport more visible and contribute to a more balanced gender representation.  Therefore, we strongly encourage women in the transport sector to respond to our call for speakers in greater numbers! For more information, please visit the conference page.
