Welcome to the new website!
The new design of the website is based on responses to a satisfaction survey conducted in 2010 and meets the guidelines of the Association for communication and knowledge sharing. New features include:
- A design with better readability;
- A more user-friendly navigation;
- Organisation by thematic areas, in the "Knowledge Base", of publications, events and related information. Note that this part is still under development;
- The grouping in the same website of publicly available information and information for members only. The latter appearing in the pages marked with an orange tab that are accessible to persons with a right of access;
- A more efficient search engine and more convenient presentation of results;
- The setting of RSS feeds to be kept informed of events, news and products in a particular area;
- The coupling with the members database of the Association that allows everyone, from the "My Account" to access information about him/herself and keep it updated.
The new site is online on the occasion of the XXIVth World Road Congress in Mexico City from 26 to 30 September 2011. There are still improvements and amendments to enrich the content of some pages. We thank you for your understanding and welcome your suggestions on the content and format of the site, which is both an important work and communication tool for the Association.
