Welcome to the International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention!

Welcome to the 7thInternational Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2020). DDI2020 will be held in Lyon, France, on October 12-14, 2020, and follows the six highly successful DDI Conferences held previously in Gothenburg, Sweden (2009, 2011, 2013, 2018), Sydney, Australia (2015) and Paris, France (2017). 

The International Conference on Driver Distraction and Inattention (DDI2020) is the premiere international event on this topic, attracting delegates from more than 20 countries. It is designed to bring participants – from academia, industry and government – up-to-date on current and recent developments and trends in the field of inattention and distraction in driving.

The conference topics include theory, measurement, effects, crash risks, and prevention/mitigation related to driver distraction and inattention. Moreover, DDI2020 will focus on the driver/occupant status. Participants are invited to present and discuss work covering disconnected drivers in assisted (drowsiness, out-of-the-loop, overreliance), and in autonomous vehicles (sleeping, take overs, etc). The new distraction legislation related to autonomous driving will also be given pride of place this year. 

The conference features keynote speakers, plenary and parallel sessions and special symposia.
