The International Conference on Railway Engineering (ICRE) is a two day call for papers event that has been specifically designed to provide a forum for sharing knowledge and experience; promoting collaboration among practitioners; and showcasing the latest development and applications of new technologies in railway engineering.

The conference has previously been organised every three years by the Hong Kong Railway Transport Section and, due to the huge success and popularity, the event now takes place in the interim years in the UK and EU, running in Brussels for the first time in 2016 and London in 2018.

ICRE 2018 is the latest forum for railway engineers to showcase their work and discuss ways in which we can improve the way we plan, maintain, modernise and operate our railway network.

How can we continue to meet the growing passenger demand?  How can we make railways cheaper to build, maintain and operate?  What more can we do to make our railways more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly? 

The conference will examine and showcase new ideas, technologies and developments that have the potential to address questions such as these whilst ensuring that our railways continue to grow and improve into the 21st Century.
