Delegates attending the Fourth Annual Signalling & Train Control Conference in Vienna have a packed agenda today, covering the full spectrum of challenges and opportunities facing signalling professionals.
Beginning with a presentation on Securing funding for TEN-T projects to advance signalling networks cost-effectively, the conference has what promises to be an intriguing operator keynote speech – Economy of onboard signalling investment and operation for railway undertakings – and a panel debate called ‘Successfully financing new signalling systems and effective planning to ensure successful deployment.’
In the afternoon the fast-paced tone continues with three separate workshops on harmonising testing procedures, enhancing lifecycle and return on investment in telecommunications, and cab signalling and increasing capacity. They are followed by an informal drinks reception.
It looks like another fascinating day in Vienna, with more to follow tomorrow.
