6th DATEX II Forum

DATEX II at the Heart of Connectivity


With 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, electromobility charging infrastructure, logistics, electronic traffic regulations and cooperative, connected and automated mobility. Both the Webinar Series and the physical Forum in June will reflect these themes and topics in both the management, functional and technical streams.


For the first webinar day on the 25th of November, the 6th DATEX II Forum will open its online doors to all system users, software developers, information architects, ITS consultants as well as policy and decision-makers interested in DATEX II. For the remaining four webinar days, two to three webinar talks will be organized on a Wednesday morning every 6 weeks from January 2021 until the physical Forum in June of 2021.

Content Streams
The webinars are addressing subjects that are of interest to different target groups in our audience. We have identified three target groups that each have dedicated streams of relevant sessions to them. The Management Stream explains when to use DATEX II and how to deploy it from a strategical perspective. The Functional Stream aims at those who want to use DATEX II in their data exchange service for a specific functional domain, such as traffic management, parking or Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure data provision. The Technical Stream goes into the technical details of the specification, the tools of the DATEX II standard and the technical deployment of DATEX II.

All webinar talks will be organized and moderated by our own DATEX II experts and will last approximately 45 minutes including Q&A. Please be aware that al questions posed in the chat during the webinar talks will be stored so that the DATEX II Organization may opt to answer any remaining questions after the sessions have ended.

We aim to publish the detailed programme for each webinar day a month prior.

What about the physical Forum you normally organize? 

COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. It impacts our private and work-life in an unprecedented way. No one can tell at the moment how things will evolve and what restrictions for conventions, traveling and social distancing will stay in place until when. This uncertainty affects of course also the set-up of this year’s DATEX II Forum. As our main goal for the Forum has always been to bring the DATEX II community together to exchange experiences, we prefer to organize a physical Forum in Paris. However, your health and safety must come first.

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, DATEX II will organize its 6th DATEX II Forum in a slightly different setting:

  • The physical Forum will take place on 9/10 June of 2021 in Paris, France

  • A webinar series will start on the original scheduled first day of the 2020 DATEX II Forum, November 25th of 2020.

This setup enables us to share with you the tremendous progress and interesting new capabilities of DATEX II already this year and to bring together the DATEX II community in the first half of next year.
