RobustRailS Mini Conference October 3, 2013

"Robust Railway Operations: Best Practice and Challenges"


We are happy to announce a mini conference on Robust Railway Operations presenting examples of best practice, discussing future challenges and barriers and meeting leading researchers of the area.

The conference is organized by RobustRailS, a research project lead by DTU (Management, Transport, Compute and Foto-nic), sponsored by The Danish Council for Strategic Research (DSF). The research in RobustRails is focused on how the railway sector can become more green and sustainable by making the transportation system more punctual, reliable, highly frequent and comfortable, resulting in more passengers using rail transportation.

Leading international experts have been invited to present their research as well as some of the main Danish railway partners will give presentations at the mini conference. Furthermore PhD students from the RobustRailS project will give a brief presentation of their projects and there will be time for discussion of various railway topics in different groups.
The purpose of the day is to bring robust railway operation into focus and bring main railway actors together. The outcome of the mini conference will serve as an important output for the further work of RobustRailS.



The mini conference takes place at DTU, Glassalen, Building 101, Anker Egelundsvej 1, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby.

Participation is free, but it is necessary to register by sending an email with name, title, company and e-mail to Administrative Coordinator Ivalo Jensen, e-mail:; DTU Management Engineering, September 25 at the latest.
