I februar 2022 afholdes PIARC XVI World Winter Service and Road Resilience Congress i Calgary, Canada. Det overordnede tema for kongressen er “Adapting to af Changing World”. Deadline for at indsende…
The Congress is an international forum where decision-makers, experts, administrators, academics, and equipment operators, manufacturers and engineers share their knowledge and best practices. The XVI Congress begins a new and exciting chapter for PIARC as we have added to the program the theme of Resilience in all seasons, not only winter, in addition to the traditional theme of Winter Service.
Resilience is the ability to prepare, respond, recover and adapt from pressures. Resilience in the transportation system can be impacted by climate change, natural or human disasters, extreme weather events, pandemics, in addition to aging infrastructure, increased or heavier traffic, use of non-standard equipment on roads, etc.
In the lead up to the Congress, we have, along with PIARC General Secretariat, launched our Call for Papers. As you are no doubt aware, the success of any technical or scientific conference starts with the number and quality of technical papers that are submitted. I am therefore asking that you widely promote the Call for Papers within your organization and with your members to encourage maximum participation in the Call for Papers. Our website www.piarc-calgary2022.org has all the details. I have also included our Bulletin No 1, which was issued this past summer, in a printable .pdf. We also encourage you to follow us on LinkedIn and Facebook!
February 2022 sounds like a long way off, but authors need to prepare their abstracts now. For guidelines on how to submit an abstract, consult the Call for Papers tab of the congress website.
Abstracts may be submitted online by January 31, 2021. For abstracts that are accepted, the author(s) will be invited to submit a formal paper for evaluation. Prizes will be awarded for the best papers.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
