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

Conference Setup

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

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
