On behalf of the organizing committee for the Ninth International Symposium on Naturalistic Driving Research (NDRS 2020), I would like to thank you for your past interest in attending and supporting this annual meeting.
Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s (August 2020) symposium. The travel restrictions and preventive measures that have been made necessary by the global spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are expected to affect the ability of many prospective attendees to confidently attend this year’s symposium. We will certainly miss the opportunity to share together the latest advances in naturalistic driving research and the stimulating discussions that always accompany the meeting sessions.
Our next installment of the conference will be held in Japan in the summer of 2021. We look forward to reconvening at that time and seeing you there!
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or comments.
Miguel A. Perez
Chair, 9th NDRS Organizing Committee
