Abstract submission open now!

We invite you to share your ideas on road design at the 6th International Symposium on Highway Geometric Design featuring the 6th Urban Streets Symposium.
Although we have already put together a very attractive and diverse program, there is room for new insights and ideas about our broad range of topics related to road design. Therefor a new Call for Abstracts is opened.
We would like to add new sessions with a focus on implementing, planning, designing and operating roundabout intersections in a urban street context and finding balance with other modes.  We are also interested in topics related to designing streets post pandemic.  We therefore cordially invite you to our call for abstracts.
You can submit your abstract here. The deadline for abstract submittals is October 1, 2020.

Important notice regarding COVID-19 and ISHGD 2020

Dear supporter of the 6th ISHGD featuring USS,

Due to exceptional circumstances we informed you that the ISHGD featuring USS 2020 Symposium in Amsterdam had to be postponed.
We are happy that we can announce the new symposium date: Wednesday June 23 – Saturday June 26. On Sunday June 27 we will organize an extra (optional) event!
We hope to announce more details about the new program later this year. The registration will be re-opened in September 2020.

We hope to welcome all attendees at the symposium on the new date in 2021 and we will continue the preparations of the symposium.

Together with all the authors, presenters, key-note speakers, workshop hosts and other staff we will make this symposium a success!  
If you have any questions regarding the rescheduling of the symposium, do not hesitate to contact us at ISHGD@congressbydesign.com.

Urban Streets Symposium

In 2020 the International Symposium for Highway Geometric Design is featuring the Urban Streets Symposium. For the first time USS will be a global symposium, hosted outside the USA. Besides topics on Highway Geometric Design the 2020 symposium is open for Urban Streets topics as well.

Scope of ISHGD 2020

The symposium aims to encourage the continuous improvement of highway geometric design. ISHGD 2020 focuses on the latest breakthrough practices relating to highway engineering in their different life phases, including daily operational effects and safe highway designs.


Amsterdam is one of the best conference and touristic destinations in Europe, right in the middle of some multi-billion highway projects, well connected to the world.
