Call for Papers

Globally, many cities are rapidly developing and expanding their rail infrastructures, and Reliability and Resiliency are key challenges in urban rail transportation. To address these challenges, the theme for ICIRT 2018 is “Towards a Zero Downtime Rail Transportation”.  While zero downtime is not obtainable literally, it should not prelude us from striving to be so. ICIRT 2018 aims to provide a platform for all rail transportation engineers and researchers to share good design practices and R&D outcomes with the objective to work towards this goal.


We invite submissions of papers on the following topics related to intelligent rail transportation but not limited to:


  • Traffic management and train control

  • System modelling and simulation

  • System optimisation

  • Transportation planning and timetabling

  • Condition monitoring

  • Vehicle dynamics and control

  • Capacity analysis

  • System automation

  • Non-destructive testing

  • Data modelling and integration

  • Communication technology

  • Railway infrastructure

  • Intelligent rail transport

  • Energy modelling & management

  • Human factors

  • Failure analyses

  • Digital rail systems

  • Privacy and security

  • ‚ÄčElectromagnetic Compatibility
