Ladies and Gentlemen!

From 6th – 9th September 2020 the 46th Conference on “Modern Rolling Stock” took place as usual at Graz University of Technology.

We also invite you to send us suggestions for the Conference Programme. It is sufficient to initially specify a working title and some tags or sentences to help us design the program.

As priorities, we currently handle Presentation of modern vehicles

  • Alternative drive systems

  • Innovations in freight transport
  • Optimization of the wheel / rail contact
  • ATO
  • Maintenance of vehicles, reduction of life cycle costs.

For the conference 2020, new topics are planned: “Components of rail vehicles” and “Production technologies”.

All proposals should be received by 2nd December 2019.

We intend to make the presentation selection by end of January 2020.
After that we will notify you and you then have three months for your full paper. We ask you to complete the written version of the publication by the end of April 2020.

The presentation time will be 25 minutes. The conference language is German but English presentations are also very welcome. We are looking forward to receiving your suggestion for the conference programme.
Yours sincerely
