The 8th International Conference on Railway Engineering
16 - 17 May 2018 | IET London: Savoy Place
About the conference
The International Conference on Railway Engineering (ICRE) is a two day call for papers event that has been specifically designed to provide a forum for sharing knowledge and experience; promoting collaboration among practitioners; and showcasing the latest development and applications of new technologies in railway engineering.
The conference has previously been organised every three years by the Hong Kong Railway Transport Section and, due to the huge success and popularity, the event now takes place in the interim years in the UK and EU, running in Brussels for the first time in 2016 and London in 2018.
What people say about the conference
“I personally found the conference to be very stimulating and the task of chairing the first day was most enjoyable. It will be excellent if we can see some of the research carried out exploited in a timely manner.
"I trust the IET will continue to support the event both in Hong Kong 2017 and in 2018 onwards and enable this conference to grow and be fruitful for the railway community and for the prestige of the IET as an Institution. I look forward to seeing the IET TV videos and recommend these to those who were unable to attend the conference.”
Comment from Chris Marshman, Conference joint Chairman
"Given the existing expertise of its members it’s no surprise that the IET is well-placed to provide clear guidance to the industry in this area, and for me one of the take-home messages from the conference floor was that the IET can provide support to the railways by acting as both a watchtower for breakthrough technologies, and as a conduit for best practice from its regional networks around the globe."
