Enabling safe performance at level crossings

  • Level Crossings

The 14th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Prevention Symposium will take place in Helsinki, Finland from 12 – 16 June 2016.

The Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium (GLXS) is a biennial event bringing together engineering, safety, security, human factors, practitioners, academics and researchers from the global road, rail, law enforcement, research and regulatory communities.

It provides an opportunity to exchange information, discuss the latest research and share good practices to improve the safety of the at-grade interface between road and rail systems, and prevent railway trespassing.

A panel will review all papers and the selection of authors to be invited to present to the conference will be based on the following criteria:

  • How the submissions meet the purpose of the symposium and address the theme and topics
  • The originality of the paper
  • New ideas incorporated
  • The committee will also try to get a fair geographical balance among the papers

The guidelines for submitting papers can be found here. Submit your paper here.
