Velo-city 2019’s conference organisers — European Cyclists’ Federation and Dublin City Council — have made a call for submissions by October 22, 2018.

The European Cyclists’ Federation’s annual conference is the world’s largest conference in the area of cycling for transport. It is planned to take place at the Convention Centre Dublin on June 25-28, 2019.

The sub-title of the conference is ‘Cycling for the Ages’, its vision is “the cycling city of 2030”, and the three conference themes are: (1) technology, intelligent transport systems and data analytics; (2) health and social; and (3) environment and infrastructure.

The conference organisers said: “Following Velo-city’s proud tradition of interactive and engaging presentations, we invite you to share with us a proposal for a presentation which will inspire attendees, enrich the conference programme and help us to reflect the breadth of cycling experience globally.”

They added: “People who cycle are central to the Velo-city conference and ideally your presentation will engage with the human side of cycling, taking into consideration age and gender and the role of the bicycle as a tool to help us live our lives, no matter what our age.”
