Welcome to DDI2018!

The 6th International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2018) will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, during October 15-17, 2018.


The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention is the premiere international event on this topic, attracting around 150 delegates from more than 20 countries. It is designed to bring participants – from government, industry and academia – up-to-date on current and recent developments and trends in the field of inattention and distraction in driving. Topics include theory, causation, measurement, impacts on driver performance and safety, and options for countermeasure development, e.g. education, training, laws, enforcement, design, licensing, research, etc.

Whilst the main focus of the DDI conference series is on driver distraction and inattention, presentations and papers on distraction affecting other road users, e.g. pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, and from domains other than road transport, e.g. aviation, medicine, rail, are also welcome.

The conference features keynote speakers, plenary and parallel sessions and special symposia – focussing on topical issues and designed to cater for the practical needs and interests of government, industry and academic delegates. All papers are peer-reviewed.

After the success of DDI2017 in Paris, the conference returns once again to Gothenburg where it all started in 2009. Subsequent conferences in the DDI series will be held biannually, in even years.

DDI2018 is hosted and co-organised by the SAFER, the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR), and the Australian Road Research Group (ARRB).

We are very pleased to welcome you to this important international road safety event!

Save the date: October 15-17, 2018!
