Railways 2012

The First International Conference on Railway Technology: Research, Development and Maintenance
Dates: 4/18/2012 - 4/20/2012
Venue: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Las Palmas, Spain
Railways have always played a significant role in the development of the wealth creation capabilities of society. The early roman wagonways, the steam driven railways during the industrial revolution and the electric railways of the late nineteenth and twentieth century are just a few of the railway systems that have played a vital role in past infrastructure development. The search for a fast, reliable and cost effective means of transport that presents better energy efficiency and less impact on the environment has resulted in renewed interest and rapid development in railway technology. Over the last few years a number of very successful special sessions have been held on railway technology in the Civil-Comp Conference series. The first Civil-Comp Conference dedicated to Railway Technology will therefore be held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2012.


The range of topics to be considered during this Conference includes (but is not limited to):
