10th Edition of UIC World Security Congress

  • Security

UIC is pleased to invite you to attend the 10th Edition of the UIC World Security Congress, taking place from 26 – 28 November in Lisbon, Portugal, at Tiara Park Atlantic Lisboa.

The 10th Edition of the UIC World Security Congress is organised by UIC in close partnership with the Portuguese rail companies REFER, EPE e CP Comboios de Portugal.

The core theme of the Congress will be the “comprehensive rail system protection” concept, which entails understanding of:

  • Coherence between the rail protection policies addressing safety, security, and other hazards or risks (civil defence, civil protection, natural disasters and other disruptions).
  • Resilience of the rail systems or services: crisis management and communication.

As usual, besides the core programme theme, we are open to suggestions for presentations and/or papers in order to allow a better and wider discussion.

Please find here the congress online registration link http://www.uic.org/spip.php?article3305 where you can register and book your accommodation, to be duly filled in before 5 September for the call of papers, and 19 September for the congress registration.

During the Congress simultaneous interpreting will available:

  • Portuguese - English
  • English - Portuguese
