Launch conference 2022

International Conference to launch the 14th edition of the International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) campaign, 9 June 2022, Denver (USA)

The International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) is a worldwide initiative to improve awareness of level crossing safety. Since 2009 the campaign has been spearheaded by the International Union of Railways (UIC), the worldwide railway organisation with the support of the railway community around the world. About 50 countries usually take part in the ILCAD annual campaign.

Each year, a partner country hosts the launch event where we may share good practices and projects to improve safety and reduce the accident toll.

This conference attracts railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics, and many others from around the world who are working to raise awareness about the dangers surrounding level crossings.

In 2021 the ILCAD launch conference was jointly organised remotely by Network Rail and UIC. It should have taken place at the National Railway Museum in York but was moved online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 300 people from 47 countries (representing every continent with a railway) joined the 2021 conference. Speakers presented engineering, innovative solutions and education measures to improve safety at level crossings.

In 2022 the international conference to launch the 14th ILCAD campaign will be on 9 June in Denver (Colorado) preceded by a special session on "Trespass and Suicide Prevention" on 8 June and followed by technical visit on 10 June.
