Technical scope

Call for abstracts

The technical scope for ICRE 2018 will focus on the following core theme areas.

  • Safety and reliability
  • Infrastructure
  • Train control systems
  • System integration
  • Rolling stock
  • Energy and sustainability
  • Customer experience
  • Emerging technologies

The organising committee are keen to receive abstracts relating to these areas but would also consider any other ideas, research or projects for the application in rail (see topic examples for a few ideas).

Call for ideas

Do you have an idea or case study that doesn’t quite fit the call for papers format or technical scope?

We’re always keen to hear about any new and innovative projects in rail so send a short overview your idea and we’ll take a look.
