Computers are now being used extensively in every field during the whole lifecycle of a railway project from initial conception through development operation, maintenance, and ultimately decommissioning to be replaced by something better when the cycle starts again. The aim of this conference was to report progress in the use of computer-based techniques and to promote their general awareness in business management, design, manufacture, and operation of the railways and other advanced passenger, freight, and transit systems. This volume includes papers on a number of new topics for the conference: advanced train control systems, train location systems, the passenger interface, maglev and linear machines, energy management, and condition monitoring. It also reports progress since the last conference with papers on infrastructure, systems engineering and safety, electromagnetic compatibility, scheduling and crew rostering, freight traffic, power supply, rail-wheel dynamics and pantograph and catenary interaction, vehicle dynamics and fatigue, traffic control, maintenance, multi-train simulators, control systems and communications, and training, decision support, and human interface systems.
