A NEW PROGRAMME for SIAFInternational 2014

Attending the SIAFInternational is the opportunity to obtain a comprehensive overview of strategic issues for railways in the world and is also an ideal platform for promising young managers to discuss the “hot topics” of their area of work with colleagues from all countries and all railway sectors, as well as to get a practical view of what international cooperation is about.

Both the important benchmarking opportunity within the railway industry that the program offers and the active networking that fosters a truly global learning experience give us confidence in the value that this program can bring to both your staff and organization.

9th Training on High Speed Systems

3-7 June 2013, Paris

PNG - 58.3 kb

High speed rail is not only a technical subject, but encompasses a complex reality involving various technical aspects such as infrastructure, rolling stock and operations and cross-sector issues such as financial, commercial, managerial, strategic and training aspects, each at its highest level.

The high speed rail system combines these various elements using highly sophisticated technology. This rapidly expanding new transport mode is often described as the transport mode of the future for a number of reasons. As well as improving rail services, promoting the modern image they seek to convey and yielding greater customer satisfaction, high speed trains also play a key role in the structuring of territories and helping to create socio-economically balanced societies at world level.

This highly efficient transport mode makes significant demands in terms of investment, technology, industry, the environment and its political and social aspects, and media coverage of these various aspects is often unbalanced. This misinformation affects public opinion as well as technical staff and decision-makers.

It is in this context and in an often tense economic, political and social climate in some countries that managers must take what are in some cases historic decisions regarding transport in general and rail transport in particular.

In order to meet the many requests from its members and with their cooperation for comprehensive and unbiased information on the subject, UIC is staging a training session on high speed systems in 2013.

New! GIS training for Rail Executives, 7-8 November 2012

PNG - 38.5 kb

REGISTER NOW

Most of the European Railways use today Geographic Information Systems (GIS) within their knowledge / data management departments to enhance their business work streams and to respond to new EU requirements. Indeed, GIS is used today within Railways for capacity conception, network maintenance, train path conception and sales, traffic management, property management and financial management. At the same time EU is introducing several initiatives to improve the location data and cross-sector data interoperability, such as INSPIRE directive (2007/2/EC) stipulating that elementary spatial railway data need to be available in Inspire format by 2017!

It has appeared that many Railway Executive Managers are not yet well informed or aware of the business potential and legal obligations that are associated to the GIS technology, still relatively new within Railways. This 2 day training provides a comprehensive understanding of GIS and many illustrative examples how railways in Northern America and Europe are using this integration technology to bring together different work streams in order to optimize organizational efficiencies, planning, accountability, communication, and decision making.

The content of the training is foreseen to cover:

  • General overview and basic notions of GIS
  • GIS advantages: explain events, create smart maps, integrate information, plan strategies, predict outcomes, visualize scenarios.
  • Common techniques of spatial data capture and different data types
  • Applications: Cadastre, Project management, Infrastructure lifecycle, Business flows, Tracking, Incident management...
  • Integration with other systems: CAD, Schematics, Enterprise Resource Maintenance / Management, Intermodal Transport, Executive Dashboard…
  • General framework of EU INSPIRE Directive on Spatial Data Infrastructure
  • Implementation patterns (desktop, server, mobile, web, federated, cloud) and examples of system architectures.
  • Human resources – a key factor for successful implementation
  • Benefits & Costs, Return on investment

The training is targeted at railway executives and managers who need to understand or promote a cross-disciplinary GIS enterprise deployment. No particular knowledge in IT- or GIS technology is assumed.

The registration fee for the session is 350 € (without VAT+19.6%) for UIC members, or 600 € (without VAT+19.6%) for UIC non-members.

Deadline for registration: 15 October 2012

Signalling and railway safety

From 6 till 8 July 2011

PNG - 49.3 kb

Signalling is the part of the railway system that prevents unsafe movements of trains. Signalling provides the trains and rail vehicles with the necessary and complete information needed for safe train operations including routing, spacing, speed control, protection and shunting.

Signalling is the bedrock of the rail system. Under nominal conditions, signalling systems enable communication between infrastructure and trains, thereby guaranteeing the overall cohesion of the system. Implementing a strong overall vision of a signalling system is a must in the current fragmented world of railways involving infrastructure managers, train operators and third parties such as maintenance suppliers, wagon keepers, service providers and procurement entities.

Particular attention shall be paid to recognising the basic principles of signalling and of systematic application irrespective of the technology being used. Ensuring basic knowledge complete and free of misunderstandings is all the more important when each player in the railway system - infrastructure managers and railway undertakings - is responsible for its safety.

In this context the role of the UIC is to contribute to the implementation of signalling system knowledge within the practical world of engineering, operations, control, and safety management.

The benefits of adopting a system approach to signalling safety are closely linked with the level of cooperation between Infrastructure Managers, Railway Undertakings and third parties which is needed to achieve safety targets with optimal allocation of technical and human resources and skills, i.e. even when faced with the double challenge of reducing costs and improving performance.

Training objectives

At the end of the session, attendees

- Have an overall vision of what constitutes signalling

- Understand the stakes at play in signalling performance and in particular its relation to overall safety as part of a single railway system

- Are able to make and justify choices in signalling applications, technology and some organisational issues

- Are able to implement safety management according to the choices made.

Target audience

- Signalling Engineers, technicians (design and maintenance)

- Staff in charge of safety engineering and management

- Managers of staff dealing with signalling (dispatchers, signallers, drivers,..)

- Senior management
