The UIC ERTMS ERTMS European Rail Transport Management System World Conference takes place every two years and gives a complete overview of the state of the art in the ERTMS business.

It follows two successful events in Stockholm, 24-26 April 2012, Malaga, Spain from 31 March – 2 April 2009 which attracted nearly 800 participants and in Berne, Switzerland in 2007.

ERTMS 2014 – Optimising Rail Investments Worldwide

The 11th UIC ERTMS World Conference is planned to take place from 1 – 3 April 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey.This international event entirely dedicated to ERTMS and both its components ETCS ETCS European Train Control System for train control and GSM-R GSM-R Global System for Mobile Communications-Railways for radio-communications, has become a worldwide reference for all decision-makers and railway professionals involved in the development of rail systems across the world.

The UIC’s purpose in organising this conference is to support and advance the momentum of ERTMS towards its objective. By bringing together the most knowledgeable professionals in the business to speak on a large variety of topics, the UIC ERTMS Conference provides the main platform to take stock of progress and to publicly present an agenda for the future.

Debates, exchanges of experience and best practice will focus on the general theme “ERTMS – Optimising Rail Investments Worldwide”. There is currently a continuous demand to make a technological leap forward in a re-organised railway environment whereby both infrastructure and train operators can take advantage of the benefits of adopting ERTMS effectively.

Turkish State Railways (TCDD) has agreed to host the conference in the extremely attractive city of Istanbul. The conference is prepared by an Organising Committee grouping senior managers from UIC, TCDD and rail industry suppliers represented in UNIFE UNIFE Union of European Railway Industries as well as Turkish organiser CMS Project.

The UIC ERTMS Word Conference programme will propose a variety of sessions from 2 – 3 April 2014. On 1 April TCDD will propose a selection of technical visits in or around the city of Istanbul. It is worth mentioning that Turkish Railways is a railway with most ambitious plans and achievements in the current period, with the fast development of a high-speed rail system, new links for rail freight including new connections with neighbouring countries, the Marmaray Project under the Bosphorus linking Europe to Asia, etc.

During the 2014 ERTMS World Conference the railways and supply industry will come together to showcase the latest achievements of ERTMS and prove their commitment to further development and progress. The technical exhibition will convincingly demonstrate the supply potential and the application of leading technologies within the ERTMS concept.
