home – call for papers

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

From 13th – 15th April 2025 the 49th Conference on “Modern Rolling Stock” will take place at Messe Graz.

We invite you to submit proposals for a conference contribution by 31 May 2024 at the latest by sending the data sheet to office@schienenfahrzeugtagung.

As priorities, we currently plan to focus on the following subject areas:

  • Modern vehicles (technical innovations, footprint)
  • Alternative drive systems (concepts, areas of application, field reports)
  • Vehicle components
  • Wheel/rail interaction
  • Fleet management (maintenance, operation and life cycle costs)
  • Tram, metro
  • Refurbishment of Rolling stock
  • Special vehicles (construction and maintenance).

We intend to select the presentations in such a way that we can notify all authors in July 2024.
In view of the planned publication as a special issue of the ZEVrail series, a written version of the presentation must then be completed by the end of October 2024.

The oral presentation is scheduled for 25 minutes. The conference languages are German and English (simultaneous translation).

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions and remain with kind regards,
for the advisory board

Peter Veit eh
