RailBeijing 2021 is the 9th International Conference on Railway Operations Modelling and Analysis (ICROMA). It will promote interdisciplinary discussions in the railway planning and operations research area by combining the expertise of academics and professionals. RailBeijing 2021 will give researchers, consultants, and industrial practitioners the opportunity to meet, present their latest research, exchange know-how, and discuss current developments and applications.
RailBeijing 2021 will be conducted in the form of a combination of online and offline, and the specific details will be released later.

RailBeijing2021 solicits contributions dealing with any aspect of railway operations modelling and analysis. Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest are:
Land use, mobility and line planning.
Transport economic modelling for railways.
Capacity and robustness in saturated networks.
Impact of signaling and safety systems on capacity and punctuality.
Impact of train priorities, dispatching rules and dedicated lines on network capacity.
Optimal network timetabling and maintenance scheduling.
Crew and vehicle scheduling.
Timetable stability, punctuality, temporal and spatial distributions of timetable margins.
Scheduling and routing of passenger and freight trains.
Real-time rescheduling, disturbance and disruption management.
Prediction of route conflicts, arrival and departure times.
Passenger flows in stations, on platform, and dwell time distribution.
Energy saving in railways.
Impact of emerging technology on future railway operation.
Governance, benchmark analysis and performance evaluation.
Connections between railway and other transport modes.
Due to the on-going worldwide crisis of COVID-19, we choose the hybrid conference model with physical local as well as remote online participation. The conference will be executed with an approved safety concept to ensure maximum safety for the participants in compliance with the applicable practice and regulations in China. With its hybrid model, RailBeijing aims at maximizing the quality of experience for all participants:
The classic conference experience for those who can and want to travel;
An interactive virtual experience for those who participate remotely.
Details will be announced in due course.
