4th UIC RailTopoModel and railML conference, 28 April 2015

Reminder – this is an open event!

  • Data Modelling

Register before 21 April at: www.railml.org/index.php/uic-topomodel-conference.html

Based on the experience of 10 European Infrastructure Managers, and after two years of work under the auspices of UIC, a generic graph railway topology and infrastructure model has been developed and refined: the “RailTopoModel” to be published by UIC as an International Railway Standard by the end of 2015.

This structuring foundation is designed to support fundamental activities in infrastructure asset management and train operations. Its purpose is interoperability in railway data exchange, with a high level of quality, reliability and performance while reducing costs. The means are:
• open standards and a shared toolset: a common language to describe business objects,
• a standard format for data exchange: railML3®, major version from railML.org, and
• a first set of Open Source Tools to ease interoperability of railway data.

This conference will focus on practical solutions and demos, use cases, benefits, and future governance of the standards and toolsets.

See you at the 4th UIC RailTopoModel and railML conference, which will be followed by the annual railML autumn community meeting on 29 April 2015, all at UIC in Paris.
