ISWIM PRESIDENT'S WELCOME

The 8th International Conference on Weigh-In-Motion (ICWIM8) will be organized in Prague, Czech Republic, from the 19th to 23rd May 2019. ICWIM8 is organised by ISWIM with the support of local hosts the Czech Transport Research Centre (CDV).

ICWIM8 will be held as a series of dedicated sessions with fully peer reviewed papers. ICWIM8 will also include an end-user series of sessions specifically designed for practitioners to be exposed to the benefits, uses and value that mass data brings.

The conference is designed to address the broad range of topics related to on-road and in-vehicle weigh-in-motion technology, its research, installation and operation and use of mass data across variable end-uses. Along with an exhibition and demonstrations program, ICWIM8 promises to be a great event.

As with our previous conferences we underscore the importance of stakeholder participation and interdisciplinary collaboration. I invite all stakeholders to Prague and ICWIM8 to share ideas and learn from others and bear witness to the progress within the on-road and in-vehicle weigh-in-motion area.

Chris Koniditsiotis
President of ISWIM.
