The Society hosts a number of educational events each year as well as networking get-togethers. The Educational events offered by the society include our Annual Breakfast, Patrons Lunch, Twilight Seminars and Advocacy in the Commission courses.

Education events, for example, adopt a relevant theme each year and present a range of viewpoints from experts in the field. Similiarily, our Advocacy for Employment Relations Professionals course provides novice advocates an opportunity to learn directly from the Commissioners – an excellent educational opportunity for little cost!

All IR and HR professionals are welcome to attend Society events. As events are open to both non-members as well as members, please note in the details under each event the discounted registration for current IRSQ members.

ICTTP2016: The Sixth International Conference on Traffic and Transport Psychology
2-5 August 2016, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

As the global population rises, economies become progressively motorized, and "the office" moves increasingly into fleet vehicles, providing safe and efficient transport systems is vital. Technology and engineering can provide part of the solution, but the complete answer can only come through understanding and guiding the behaviour of transport network users. 

ICTTP2016 will be a global forum at which all those involved in traffic and transport psychology, human factors, cognition and behaviours, road safety research, policy, education, enforcement and injury prevention, can meet with researchers, academics and professionals to discuss and present on the latest work being undertaken in these areas.
