The fourth paper in the Presidential Programme for 2018-19 will look at the use of automatic train operation (ATO) in two very high-profile projects in London. Our presenters, Nicola Furness and Andrew Simmons, have been influential in the delivery of these systems and the challenges of bringing them into service operation.
This event will be live-streamed.
Please note that you are asked to pre-register if you are planning to attend in person due to building security and room capacity requirements.

Two papers will be presented on the subjects of The Internet of Railway Things and Cyber-Security by Dr Michael Leinig and Prof. Katzenbeisser.
The Presidential Programme paper in March this year on Trackworker Safety by Rod Muttram and Wim Coenraad was too long to be published in full in IRSE News, so a shortened version appeared in the May 2018 edition.
The full version is now available on the International Technical Committee page of the IRSE website.
The document is available in the EPUB format for reading on small screen portable devices or as a printable PDF.
All IRSE members are invited to attend the AGM.
There will be a brief review of the previous year’s annual report and accounts followed by the announcement of the names of Council members for 2019-2020. Elections to Hon Fellow and winners of awards are also announced.
The incoming President will make their Presidential address.
