Polis Conference 2020: Call for Speakers announced!

Following a record-breaking conference in Brussels, which brought together over 600 participants in November 2019, the 2020 Polis Annual Conference will take place in Arnhem Nijmegen City Region, Netherlands, on 2-3 December 2020.

We are pleased to announce a Call for Speakers for the conference! The call for speakers prioritises contributions on transport topics which are high on the agenda of cities and regions and feature in today’s international, European and local debates around urban transport innovation. These topics are based on our five key themes:

  • Environment and Health in Transport
  • Traffic Efficiency
  • Safety and Security
  • Access
  • Governance and Integration

The full list of specific topics can be found in the Call for Speakers document.

The transport sector is far from gender-balanced. Polis wants to make women in transport more visible and offer them a platform to share their work. We strongly encourage women in the transport sector to respond to our call for speakers in greater numbers!

Following numerous requests, we have decided to extend the deadline for abstract submissions. Please submit your abstract here by 8 June (extended from 25 May).
