DATEX II Forum 2020 – Call for Contributions


We are happy to announce the sixth DATEX II Forum to be held on the 25th and 26th of November 2020 in Paris, France.

With the ­finalization of Version 3, DATEX II is now at the heart of connectivity, supporting the digitalisation of road traffic and travel information. Next to important updates implemented for national road operators and service providers, DATEX II has broadened its focus to the domains of urban mobility, electro mobility charging infrastructure, logistics, electronic traffic regulations and connected and autonomous mobility. The Forum will reflect these themes and topics in both the management and technical stream.

To make this a successful Forum, we invite you to share your experiences with DATEX II in your domain or for your service, to raise the issues you think need to be addressed and to give us your thoughts about future perspectives.

We encourage presentations that address one or more of the following themes:
