Safe4RAIL and CONNECTA Joint Final Conference

Contributed by: TTTech Computertechnik AG

From 2018-09-26 to 2018-09-26, France
Blueprint for next-generation TCMS
More functionality and interoperability, lower system complexity and cost
Safe4RAIL and CONNECTA Joint Final Conference
The final joint conference of the CONNECTA and the Safe4RAIL projects will take place on the 26th of September 2018 in Paris, France.

The conference will provide an overview on the next-generation TCMS (Train Control and Monitoring Systems) that has been developed by the two projects CONNECTA and Safe4RAIL. The concepts for the Integrated Modular Platform, consisting of middleware and networking framework, will be presented. Further presentations will be related to the supporting simulation and demonstration aspects.

The conference welcomes participants from railway technology suppliers and manufacturers, safety experts, and authorities as well as academic participants in the domain of train control and communication systems.

Participation for this event is free of charge, but registration is obligatory. You can register yourself for the conference by visiting Safe4RAIL's project website cc or by sending an email to

Safe4RAIL (Safe architecture for Robust distributed Application Integration in roLling stock) is complementary to the Shift2Rail project CONNECTA (CONtributing to Shift2Rail's NExt generation of high Capable and safe TCMS and brAkes), both addressing the first activities of the Shift2Rail Multi-Annual Action Plan (MAAP) on TD1.2 – TD Next Generation TCMS and TD1.5 – TD Brakes. CONNECTA and Safe4RAIL have received funding from the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, with agreements No 730539 and No 730830, respectively.
