ASPECT provides an unrivalled opportunity for learning and the exchange of knowledge in the fields of train control, railway communications, and related disciplines. The fourth day of the conference will provide a range of technical visits to complement the three technical days.
Thanks to ASPECT 2023 being held in one of the most liveable cities in the world, we have secured the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre to host the three days of technical sessions. This world-class facility is in the heart of the Melbourne CBD and close to transport, hotels, and restaurants.
One of the highlights of the week is the conference dinner which will be held at one of Melbourne’s iconic venues. Finally, as it is a rail conference, we have arranged a chartered steam train ride on the Puffing Billy Railway, including site visits and evening dinner to top it off with.
The event has consistently attracted a wide of range of people in the industry with over 250 delegates from across the globe attending the last ASPECT conference. ASPECT is open to both IRSE members and non-members and will bring together, the world’s best signalling, control, systems, and communications engineers along with leading signalling and communications technology companies. As an industry, we see a growing gap between the demand for talented engineers and those coming through our ranks. Events such as ASPECT can attract and develop an ever growing diverse workforce. The IRSE is committed to a policy of diversity, equality, and inclusion and hence, I believe such events are essential to the future success of our industry.
