From the Chairman

On behalf of the International Road Federation’s volunteer leadership and global network of members, it gives me particular pleasure this year to welcome you to IRF’s flagship event in the region. Asia-Pacific is an incredibly important economic hub, and many of its transportation leaders have announced bold measures to fill the infrastructure gap that has so long plagued the region. This represents an extremely fertile environment to discuss measures and solutions that support this political agenda and help drive shared prosperity in Asia-Pacific. Indonesia, our host country, is itself a remarkable example of this drive towards greater connectivity, with unprecedented effort to develop and modernize its transport infrastructure.

The Congress also comes at an opportune time for IRF and its members who now stand united behind a new vision and mission statement. Events such as this fully illustrate our collective ambition to be the leading global marketplace for ideas, best practices and industry solutions. Please take a moment to meet with IRF members during your stay in Bali to find out how our organization has helped them achieve their goals.

Together with the Indonesian Road Development Association, we have brought together the world’s top practitioners, thought leaders, and academics with the sole purpose of discussing mobility and infrastructure solutions that are safe, sustainable, and result in positive economic progress. I am pleased to count on your participation and look forward to the key findings of this landmark event.

Eng. Abdullah A. Al-Mogbel
IRF Chairman

Message from the Conference Scientific & Technical Committee Chairs

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 rubberized asphalt, to advances in construction equipment automation, and of course, the dawn of the connected and automated vehicle, we are on a verge of a new era. With such remarkable developments, we found it very important to organize 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 invite innovators, researchers and practitioners to submit abstracts in the following topics and help us build tomorrow’s transport infrastructure today.
