The World Congress on Railway Research (WCRR) is the world’s foremost international forum for the promotion, development and exchange of the latest innovations in the global rail industry. WCRR 2013, to take place in Sydney from 25 – 28 November 2013, will see the exchange of best practice between researchers, manufacturers and operators from across the global rail industry.

By combining the conference with the flagship Australasian rail conference and exhibition AusRAIL PLUS, the joint event will create the biggest ever rail conference- /exhibition hosted in the region.

UIC is – along with a number of UIC members, namely AAR (USA), Deutsche Bahn (Germany), FS / trenitalia (Italy), RSSB (U.K), RTRI (Japan) and SNCF (France) – involved in the organisation of this prestigious event, which in the press has recently also been mentioned as “the Olympic Games of Rail Research”. The organisation of this 10th WCRR is led by the three Australian railway organisations RAIL-CRC, RISSB and ARA.

The conference theme chosen by the organisers for this 10th edition of the WCRR is “Keeping ahead of the curve through the sharing of knowledge”.
