Deadline for submissions: 18 June 2010
Abstracts are invited for the 7th Cycling and Society Research Group symposium to be held at the University of Oxford on Monday 6th September 2010. The Symposium is open to academics, policy makers and advocates who wish to share their research, knowledge and experience of any topic related to cycling. The event will take place in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in one of the UK’s foremost cycling cities. Newer participants to the field are most welcome and we particularly invite submissions from those who are able to offer critical perspectives on the subject matter from a variety of disciplines. Papers presented at previous symposia have covered a broad range of themes including: culture; effects of interventions; embodiment; factors inhibiting cycling; fear; gender; history; identity; image; interaction between road users; legal issues; methodological approaches; policy; planning and design; promotion; route choice modelling; social capital; social transformation; statistics; and technology.
Please send an abstract of up to 300 words by the deadline of Friday 18th June 2010 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of members of the Cycling and Society Research Group and notification of acceptance will be sent via e-mail to the corresponding author by Friday 16th July 2010. Those wishing to participate in the symposium without presenting a paper are very welcome to attend. There will also be an informal session for academic researchers on Tuesday 7th September during the morning. Information on registering for the event will be available in July.
If you require any further information in the meantime please contact Sally Pepperall at the Transport Studies Unit by e-mail email@example.com or by telephone +44 (0)1865 285066.
