Aula TU Delft
The IRSE Dutch Section has agreed to organise the IRSE's Aspect 2019 conference in cooperation with the IRSE UK and Delft University of Technology, where we will be hosted in its prestigious Aula and auditorium.

The venue will be Aula and Conference Centre of Delft University of Technology in the city of Delft in the Netherlands and the tentative dates for the event are in week 43 in 2019. The conference will open on October 22nd with the introductory day and welcome reception, the main conference days on October 23rd and 24th with a selection of Technical Visits being offered on October 25th.

Our partner at Delft University of Technology is the Department of Transport & Planning, represented by Prof. Dr. Rob M.P. Goverde, Professor of Railway Traffic Operations & Management.

ASPECT welcomes papers on the topics of Automation, Signalling, Performance, Equipment, Control and Telecommunications. However, in 2019 we are looking for a particular focus on Resilience.

Resilience is defined as the ability of people, organisations and systems to cope with change or adversity, maintaining, or returning to the “normal” state of operation as quickly as possible. It is associated with terms as robustness and risk management but contrary to more traditional risk management approaches it is not solely based on defining scenario’s for dealing with identifiable threats or risks, but also embraces the concept of dealing or coping with the unexpected.

Watch this space and save the dates!
