Do you use, carry out or fund rail research?
If so, you need to join us for the 6th RRUKA Annual Conference. Taking place for one day in London, this conference provides a central focal point and forum for discussion between individuals and groups with a key part to play in the commission, delivery and implementation of rail research.
Throughout the day, we will provide insights into current research activities, explain which universities do what in rail, get to grips with the research priorities for different industry stakeholders and stimulate discussion to build relationships which will ultimately lead to the provision of novel solutions.
The conference is free to attend and will include presentations in different formats, interactive ways to share your thoughts and our blue sky village exhibition – featuring interactive demonstrators, models and opportunities to speak to those involved firsthand.
Visit the event page for more information and register now.
Deadline for registration: Friday 3 November
How can I get involved?
Present your research
We are not inviting the submission of abstracts to fill a small number of research presentation slots in the conference programme.
This is an opportunity to showcase some of the state-of-the-art research underway, and demonstrate the significant impact it has in addressing key rail challenges. Presentation slots are limited and we hope to present a range of research at different technology readiness levels.
Successful presenters will also be invited to submit full papers, with a selection of these being published in an RRUKA special edition of The Journal of Rail and Rapid Transit (JRRT).
Deadline for abstract submission: Friday 15 September
Exhibit in our Blue-Sky Village
RRUKA members are invited to participate in the blue-sky village, with opportunities to create interactive exhibits highlighting your research, facilities and expertise.
- network with individuals who could help to develop your projects
- demonstrate your rail-related capabilities
- showcase your facilities, research groups and current projects
View the full call for participation for further details and guidelines – note stands are limited this year and you will need to submit a proposal for consideration. (Please express your interest as part of your conference registration).
