Congress Theme and Program

The overall theme for the Congress is

Adapting to a Changing World.

This theme brings together the elements of climate change, technological change, regulatory change, and societal change, particularly as nations adapt to COVID-19 and the changed world in which we live. 

The Congress program will begin with the official opening ceremony on February 8, followed by a senior officials’ session and the opening of the technical exhibition. Technical sessions, poster sessions, foresight sessions, keynote speakers, the international snowplow championship, closing ceremony round out the official program.

There will be over 50 technical sessions under two themes: Winter Service and, new for 2022, Road Resilience. This second theme was added to respond to an emerging priority for the road community.
