4th International Railway Symposium Aachen

22nd - 23rd November 2023 | EUROGRESS AACHEN

To the program


From November 22nd - 23rd, 2023, the 4th International Railway Symposium Aachen will take place at the Eurogress in Aachen. 

The big subjects in the rail sector at the moment are decarbonization, automation and increasing capacity and reliability. Lines are being electrified or diesel-powered trains are increasingly being replaced by battery or hydrogen-powered electric drives. This trend is evident not only in Europe, but worldwide.

Decommissioned lines are to be reactivated to make them even more attractive. Automation, meaning driving without a driver, is still at the development stage except for metro and people mover networks. However, if we really want to achieve a modal shift to rail, this path must be pursued further due to a lack of personnel and in order to make better use of the infrastructure. The basis for more capacity on rail is significantly increased reliability of vehicles, infrastructure and operations. Research on these important topics is being conducted in many places around the world.

You can expect a varied program with over 50 papers in three parallel sessions, addressing the major and current issues in the rail sector.

The event addresses the technical areas of the rail system and also of public transport railroads. By holding the event in German and English and providing an interpreting service, it also offers a forum for international speakers and guests.
With an extensive trade exhibition and an dinner event in a casual atmosphere, the symposium also offers plenty of space for networking with cold drinks and tasty food.

For the first time, the DVV Media Group with its umbrella brand for the rail industry Eurailpress will be organizing the event, with the Research Center Railways of RWTH Aachen University as a partner.
