UIC and the Ministry of Railways (MOR) of the People’s Republic of China are organising UIC HIGHSPEED 2010, the 7th world Congress on High Speed Rail, on 7 – 9 December 2010 in Beijing

UIC HIGHSPEED is widely recognised as the most prominent and large-scale international event in its field and will bring together high-level speakers from countries that operate high speed, countries where high speed construction has either started or will soon be initiated and speakers from countries who are seriously considering introducing high speed. The main aim will be to deliver an overview of the latest achievements and innovations in high speed rail transport and future outlook, and to promote decisions aiming to further implement this efficient and sustainable transport mode.

Decision-makers from the transport and railway field from all over the world

The Chairmen of the congress Mr Liu Zhijun, Minister of Railways of China and Mr Yoshio Ishida, UIC Chairman, will officially open the congress on 7 December together with Mr José Blanco, Spanish Transport Minister, Mr Mauro Moretti, CEO of Italian Railways (FS) and UIC Vice-Chairman, Mr He Huawu, Chief Engineer of the Chinese Ministry of Transport (MOR), Mr Huh Joon-Young, CEO of Korail and Chairman of the UIC Asian Regional Assembly (South Korea), Mr Hubert du Mesnil, President of the French Rail Infrastructure Manager (RFF) and Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director-General.

This leading conference is organised around two round tables dealing with “High Speed Rail towards the Future” and “High Speed Rail Innovations” respectively. Seven blocks of thirty-five parallel sessions totalling 240 presentations on dedicated topics directly connected with high speed rail development will include:
  • High Speed Rail and Socio-economic Development: environment, energy and resources, noise and vibrations, economics, financing, territory management
  • High speed rolling stock: design and manufacturing, use and maintenance, traction power supply
  • High speed operations: safety and security, standards and interoperability, extreme
  • and exceptional natural conditions, signalling and communications

The presentations have been selected by the UIC HIGHSPEED 2010 Scientific Committee chaired by Mr Michel Leboeuf, Director at SNCF and Mr. He Huawu, Chief Engineer at China’s MOR. The Scientific Committee is composed of high-level experts from railway operators, infrastructure managers, rail organisations, research institutes and consultancies.

The Scientific Committee has also set up a special Student Programme and is pleased to welcome students specialising in rail transport at UIC HIGHSPEED 2010 as they are important for the future in general and more specifically for the continued innovation of high speed rail.

An International railway exhibition in conjunction with “Modern Railways”

The UIC HIGHSPEED 2010 professional exhibition will be organised in conjunction with the 9th edition of “Modern Railways”, the only large international railway exhibition approved and fully supported by China’s Ministry of Railways (MOR) and the Ministry of Commerce (MOC). “Modern Railways” serves as an important platform for exchange and cooperation for railway manufacturers and railway companies from 20 different countries around the world. Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about the requirements of China’s railway development, foster partnerships and develop the market.

Technical visits will give participants the opportunity to discover the Chinese railway infrastructure and rolling stock.

The Chinese Academy of Railway of Science (CARS) will handle all logistical concerns relating to the congress.

Oh my god, CRH380B from CNR is hands-down the most beautiful design out of china so far. I always though the 380A looked a little awkward, due to the massive empty grey space on the nose, and the way the coupler doors appear, but the 380B, just wow.
Perfectly proportioned, and it looks so sleek and elegant.

Awesome updates greenlion

I think 380A and 380C are the most beautiful ones. Velaro has a distinctive charm, too.

I have to say that I'm really liking the 380B. Can't wait to see the 380B and the 380C on the tracks.

I don't like the design of CRH380B. The front looks weak and not aggressive, and the side is nothing but a Velaro, at least change the doors or the windows. The CRH380C now thats a beauty so is the 380A

Can't you say much the same for the 380A though? The sides and doors are pretty much identical to those found on the CRH2 (and the shinkansen) The main difference away from the nose in terms of looks is the exterior shell is a less boxy shape for greater strength when comared to the CRH2.

Why am I arguing this?
Everyone's allowed their opinions haha.
