Interested speakers are requested to prepare an abstract using the online submission form: http://www.polisnetwork.eu/2017abstracts

One of the topics relevant to the LEV-sector is “The commuting cyclist: the rise of e-bikes, fast cycle lanes, impact on urban regions” under the heading enviromnent & health in traffic. The issue of cyclelogistics could be broached under the topic “Safer urban freight transport to protect pedestrians and cyclists”, which comes under the heading road safety and security

Another relevant topic is “Urban parking policy to support economic & urban development; using parking data & technology for policy delivery”. Suitable parking infrastructure is one of the main issues in the promotion of LEVs. The opportunity of this topic needs to be used to outline the importance of including LEVs in parking data and technology analysis for policy delivery.

Finally, the topic “Public transport – integrated planning, clean vehicles, information services, automation, regional public transport” also offers opportunities for presentations on LEVs. These last two topics come under the issue of economic and social challenges.
