2013 Annual Polis Conference

04 December 2013 - 05 December 2013 Brussels, Belgium

In 2013, the Annual Polis Conference will take place in Brussels. The Annual General Assembly for Polis members will take place around the conference.

The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for cities, metropolitan areas and regions to showcase their transport achievements to a large audience and for the wider transport community to engage with representatives of city and regional authorities on innovative transport solutions. The conference will offer a mix of high-level plenary sessions, with prominent figures debating topical issues, and a wide selection of technical sessions showing innovation in policy and practice across the local transport spectrum.

The call for speakers is covering a wide range of topics open under the core Polis themes of 'environment & health', 'traffic efficiency & mobility', 'road safety' and 'social and economic challenges', including:

  • Reducing the cost of ITS delivery - new services and business models
  • Objective-led ITS deployment, including the use of ITS to promote modal shift
  • Electro-mobility: business models, deployment experiences & plans, charging infrastructures, service integration
  • Active travel for health and the integration of health in transport planning
  • Incentives and strategies for clean vehicle fleets
  • Road safety and vulnerable road users
  • Urban transport pricing policy and practice
  • New approaches to the organisation of public transport
