Rail experts from around the region have until March 10 to submit abstracts for papers to be delivered at this year’s massive AusRAIL Plus event in Brisbane.

The Australasian Railway Association’s annual AusRAIL event will head to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from November 21 to 23, 2017.

2017 represents a biennial ‘PLUS’ year for AusRAIL, meaning organisers are expecting even more speakers, exhibitors, delegates and visitors than in 2016.

Alongside its exhibition, panel sessions and keynote speeches, AusRAIL is well known for its informative and detailed technical conference streams.

The ARA is inviting rail experts to submit 400- to 600-word abstracts for proposed papers to be delivered in these conference streams.

Experts are being asked to specifically address this year’s conference theme, ‘Rail’s Digital Revolution’, in their abstracts.

Organisers are interested in papers covering a wide array of industry sectors, including (but not limited to) track, asset management, rollingstock, signals & communication, management and operations.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the event’s Technical Committee, and are due by Friday, March 10, with successful authors to be notified by Monday, May 8.
