News for DDI2018 is that abstracts have to be 2-3 pages (1000-1500 words) in length and that it is possible to choose to give an oral presentation only, develop the extended abstract into a paper for either the IET Journal or DDI proceedings, or contribute with a poster. All extended abstracts and papers for DDI proceedings are peer‐reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

The conference Scientific Committee welcomes extended abstracts for presentations, papers or posters from all stakeholder groups (researchers, designers, engineers, policy makers, transport companies, etc.), from all modes of transport (land, air and sea) and from any relevant discipline including, but not limited to, psychology, neuropsychology, neuroscience, human factors, medicine, ergonomics, sociology, epidemiology, engineering and technology, law and politics, etc. We look forward to receiving extended abstracts from a good mix of academics and practitioners.
