Organization of the parallel sessions (tentative)
The parallel sessions will be held in 5 different rooms respectively dedicated to the following Topics:
- Railway systems

Each Topic will be developed according to 5 successive Stages relating to the planning, the design, the construction, the operations & maintenance and finally the ex-post evaluation including the socio-economic and environmental aspects.
This leads to the following organization which may evolve according to the number and the quality of the Abstracts relating to each Topic and Stage.
