After the successful kick-off event in 2017 the 2nd International Railway Symposium is scheduled from 26.-28. November 2019 in Aachen. We look forward to see you. More information can be found here.
The VIA developed on behalf of DB Netz AG algorithms as well as necessary adaptations of the analytical procedures for a network-wide capacity determination within the project "Industrialization of railway operational studies - IEBWU". The project was successfully completed after two and a half years. Currently the results are integrated into the software tool LUKS®.
From February to March 2019, the institute for transport science conducts further training courses on "Planning", "Operation" and "Railway safety and signalling technology" for CFL employees.
The destination of this year's excursion (11.06. - 15.06.2019)
of the RWTH transport chairs will be several towns in Belgium and the Netherlands. Program points are the Port of Antwerp and marshalling yard Antwerp North, urban

The Research Center Railways has successfully completed the research project "ANTS II". In the project, various operating concepts for the novel Automated Nano Transport System were developed in cooperation with the Institute for Rail Vehicles.
In this year, the Institute of Transport Science took part in the RWTH Science Night. Therefore, the Signalling Lab was opened from 7 pm to 11 pm with the motto "railway to touch". In the future, on some days the Signalling Lab will be opened for everyone. That information will be published in time on our homepage.
One day after the reopening of the Signalling Lab, the Signalling Lab was opened for the invited guests. They had the possibility to view and handle the modernized model railway system. Because of the great interest, two groups were formed.
