On November 22-23, 2023 the 4th International Railway Symposium Aachen will be held at Aachen.
We look forward to seeing you.
You will find further information here.
On June 6th 2023 the bonding InstitutsMarkt will take place in the Aula in the Main Building of RWTH Aachen University. We will be there as well and are looking forward to many interesting conversations with students and visitors.
Last month, the LNAS@CGN research project was successfully completed. Together with the partners DLR, Eurowings and Cologne/Bonn Airport, the effects of the new system on conventional and alternative steep approach procedures were investigated within the framework of the pilot assistance system LNAS (Low Noise Augmentation System), which is currently under development. Significant potentials for noise and pollutant reductions in landing operations were detected. The long-term goal is to introduce LNAS into commercial flight operations. The project was funded by the Ministry of the Environment, Nature and Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MUNV).
On 11th May the 15th Wissenschaftsforum Mobilität (Science Forum Mobility) of the University Duisburg-Essen took place in Duisburg. Many interesting presentations and discussions were held on the topic "Next Chapter in Mobility". The VIA was represented by Nadine Friesen with a presentation on "External Costs in the Transport Sector" and by Juliane Rösing and Sebastian Harm with a poster contribution on "Demand Analysis for Air Taxi Services in North Rhine-Westphalia". We thank all participants for their great interest in our contributions and look forward to the next event.
The 12th meeting of the Airside Simulation and Performance Assessment Group (ASPAG) took place in Barcelona from 27 to 28 April. The focus was on the exchange of information on current developments in the fields of capacity and efficiency in flight operations with aviation colleagues from all over the world. New for this meeting was a workshop session on UAV operations. The VIA contributed on the topics of "Vertiport Operations and Capacity Analysis with Event-Oriented Simulation" and "Aerodrome Capacities for STOL Air Taxi Operations". We would like to thank the ASPAG team for the great organisation and look forward to the next event in autumn.
FET will take place for the fourth time on 18 and 19 September 2023 in Passau. The event will once again highlight topics between railway law and technology and is aimed at jurists and practitioners. As usual, the Federal Railway Authority and the chairs and professorships of public law at the Universities of Passau and Frankfurt and the Chair of Railway Engineering and Transport Economics at RWTH Aachen University will arrange the content. Further information and the possibility to register are available here.
The 10th Conference on Railway Operations Modeling and Analysis (ICROMA) was held in Belgrade from April 25-28. VIA was represented in large numbers at Rail Belgrade 2023 and presented several research results at the conference.
The conference paper "Modelling Time in the Timetable-Based Railway Network Design Problem" by Nadine Friesen was awarded at RailBelgrade 2023 and selected as one of the 10 best papers. The paper was co-authored with Tim Sander from TU Dresden and conducted as part of a DFG project.
