Conference Vision

Let's use creative and interactive sessions to shape the cycling research agenda together

We invite a variety of perspectives, especially from early career researchers. Participants are encouraged to submit work, even early stage work, that reflects a variety of inter- and transdisciplinary topics, including:

+ Creative approaches to promoting cycling
+ Innovative methodologies to study cycling
+ Using cycling to challenge/rethink assumptions about mobility
+ Critical approaches to transport technology and innovation

Parallel Session Formats

Not just a presentation. Each session should foster interaction with your peers.

Group Creativity

Unleash the creativity of the audience by leveraging interactive session formats, including: 9 whys, 1-2-4-all, open space, storyboard, and others

Outdoor Activity

Wuppertal features both dramatic topography and an an impressive rails-to-trails infrastructure project. Use the outdoors to your advantage, especially when introducing new methodologies, or conduct a quick experiment during your session.

Semi-Structured Feedback

Think about how you want to gather feedback from your audience. Can you leverage a Menti poll or a whiteboard? How can the Q&A not only benefit you, but be interesting to the audience as well?

Our plenary sessions will be equally creative. Be inspired by activities geared towards skills development

Call for Papers!

As an exciting first for the Cycling Research Board Annual Meeting, this year we will offer a platform for contributors to publish peer-reviewed articles in the forthcoming Special Issue for CRBAM23 in the new Journal of Cycling and Micromobility Research. The author(s) of high-quality abstracts will be invited to submit a full-length article to capture the research findings, new methods or tools, or the other solutions they discuss at our Annual Meeting. More information and deadlines for article submission and publishing to come!
