The scope of the conference is to evaluate the existing policies and analyse new proposals to accelerate the growth of the Railways Industry. Debate between academics, industry and public officials is the proposed methodology to provide deep insights and fresh approaches.
We are looking for original papers covering the various aspects of Railway Regulation and focusing either on a country or a region, or on more transversal issues such as investment, competition in commercial services, competition in Public Service Obligations, capacity allocation and traffic management, passenger rights, multimodality, digital mobility/platforms and others.
Contributions utilizing multidisciplinary, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to regulation, are very welcome. Papers, linking academia and practice, as well as policy research papers, are particularly encouraged.
The conference is intended for academics, as well as academically minded practitioners. Papers from PhD researchers are welcomed. The best papers will be eligible for publication in a book on Transport Regulation in Europe, to be published by a leading publisher.
