Royal Olympic Hotel, Room Panorama, Athens, Greece

Monday, 10 September 2018, From 1:30p.m. to 7p.m

The project’s Final Event will be hosted as a pre-conference workshop of this year’s IRCOBI and thus, will take place at the same venue. Through the presentation of key project achievements and talks of top-class invited guest speakers, fruitful discussions will be engaged, among others, about:

Simulation-based approach covering a wider range of loading conditions

  • Generic sled test set-up for car occupant tests
  • Human body models to assess thoracic injuries of elderly
  • Improved ATD thoracic injury criteria
  • Test tools FlexPLI-UBM and TIPT
  • Enhanced test and assessment procedures (NCAP and legislation)

The registration process for this Final Event will start on 2 July 2018 using the IRCOBI conference’s registration system under:

Please register in time as the number of seats is limited!

IRCOBI Side Event – Invitees only

11/09/2015 at 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm – L’embarcadere

The IRCOBI conference has been taking place annually since 1973, and is the premier forum for researchers in the field of injury biomechanics. Researchers in the fields of biomechanics, crash mechanics, accident reconstruction, sports injury, tissue modelling, epidemiology and all other fields relating to the biomechanics of injury and protective systems are invited to attend.

The SENIORS project will take this unique opportunity to organise a side event to present the project objectives and methodology and share opinions and knowledge with some of the most recognised experts in the field.


Apr 2016


20/04/2016 at 8:30 am - 9:00 am – TÜV SÜD AG


The SENIORS project will be presented in the opening speech on second conference day at by the project coordinator, Marcus Wisch. 2016 will address the latest topics relating to vehicle safety. In particular, this includes protection of vulnerable road users, test and simulation methods, the future development of dummies and the application of active human body models. The progress in the development of assisted and automated driving makes it particularly clear how passive and active safety work together. Therefore main topics of the conference are methods of validation of new vehicle safety technology.

The SENIORS project coordinator, Marcus Wisch, will present the project in the opening speech, the 20th of April at 8:30am.

Second Experts Meeting (invitees only)

16/09/2016 at 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm – Hotel Molina Lario

The SENIORS project will again take the chance to gather many experts in the field of passive safety and biomechanics after the IRCOBI conference.

This event, reserved for invitees only, will set up the most suitable environment to discuss project results and approaches focussing on the following issues:

  • Early results from accident and hospital data analysis of older road users in Europe
  • Reiterated concepts, methodologies (incl. test and simulation matrices) and tools for car occupant and pedestrian safety
  • Generic sled test set-up for car occupant tests
  • HBM simulations (strengths and weaknesses)
  • Initial results from the volunteer tests

This event is organised after the successful results of the First Experts Meeting organised in Lyon in September 2015.
