CORE is the premier technical event in the Australian rail conference market, with a reputation for high quality papers covering a wide range of rail engineering, operations, planning and management topics.
CORE2018 will be celebrating 20 years of RTSA and will be the first CORE conference to be held in Sydney. The conference will give participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge. It will be held at the new International Convention Centre Sydney, which is a spectacular, green-designed facility at Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
The theme of CORE2018 is “Rail: smart, automated, sustainable”. Technology is constantly evolving and this has presented both solutions and challenges in the way we plan and deliver rail services and infrastructure. The conference will provide a knowledge exchange platform between emerging technologies and our existing infrastructure and projects, maximising the efficiency and benefits for the end customer and industry. It will broadly cover all disciplines of railway from fundamental research to “blue sky” applications, highlight global scientific interactions and collaborations, and feature the unique location, culture and beautiful geography of Sydney.
The conference is expected to attract 700 attendees focused on rail transport issues representing all rail related disciplines from engineering research and practice, private industry, and governments. CORE2018 will include a full technical program of plenary, oral and poster sessions, pre- and post-conference short courses, workshops and field trips. There will be dedicated events to welcome young professionals, researchers, and students – the Future Generation.
