Registrations for delegates and
speakers/presenters are open for the World
Cycling Research Forum 2013 Bristol. WOCREF is the world’s
premier conference dedicated to research into all manners and matters
related to the bicycle. WOCREF is a stimulating opportunity for
researchers, practitioners, policy advisors and consultants to meet to
disseminate and share knowledge on a wide range of aspects of cycling.
year’s conference is to be held at the Exhibition
and Conference Centre at the Frenchay Campus of the University of the
West of England in Bristol. Held in the UK's first Cycling City, WOCREF
will be a celebration of research from public and private organisations
as well as academia that seeks to make immediate and lasting impacts on
the social, structural, and cultural spheres of cycling worldwide.
Bristol will showcase research with a more applied focus than other
cycling conferences and most of the presentations will be of
peer-reviewed papers targeted for publication in the online journal Cycling Research International.
This augurs well for the quality of this year’s conference to be
every bit as good as last year’s delight in Enschede.
University of the West of England, WOCREF forms part of their Year of
Cycling; an initiative that brings together a range of academic
disciplines across the university involved in cycling related research
and seeks to generate innovative research as well as having a significant
impact on the cycling behaviours of students and staff at UWE and of
people in the wider community. For more information -
