The IRF's Global Road Conference will provide attendees with valuable learning potential
Technology and innovations are evolving at a pace never seen before in the history of the road and transport sector. From innovations in materials, such as self-healing concrete and rubberised asphalt, to advances in construction equipment automation, and of course, the dawn of the connected and automated vehicle, we are on the verge of a new era.

With such remarkable developments, the IRF found it important to organise a global event that brought together the most innovative researchers with the top practitioners and users of innovation and technology. As such it is our pleasure to invite innovators, researchers and practitioners to submit abstracts in the following topics and help us build tomorrow’s transport infrastructure today.

  • Global Road Conference Scientific & Technical Committee Co-Chairs
  • Dr Kamil Kaloush, Professor, Arizona State University
  • Dr Moses Karakouzian, Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
