Introduction from CORE 2021 Conference Chair

The RTSA’s biennial Conference on Railway Excellence (CORE) has firmly established itself in recent years as the premier technical event in the Australasian rail conference market, with a reputation for high quality papers covering a wide range of rail engineering, operations, planning and management topics.

The RTSA is proud of CORE’s reputation for high quality objective papers and presentations which advance the body of knowledge on rail technologies and the sharing of the best practise in planning, implementation, operations and management of rail systems.

We look forward to partnering with you

CORE 2020 postponed due to COVID-19

The RTSA, Engineers Australia and the CORE 2020 Organising Committee have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic for some time. Over the past week many countries, agencies and institutions have put in place travel restrictions and strict isolation periods.

The health and safety of our delegates, sponsors, exhibitors, invited speakers and the local community in Perth are paramount, therefore, considering the risks involved, we have decided to postpone CORE 2020 to now become CORE 2021 to be held 21 – 23 June 2021 in Perth.

In reaching this decision we have considered  alternatives, including delivering a fully virtual/online conference. However, we believe CORE has always been and will continue to be “the meeting place” for the Australasian rail community and it is best to maintain the face to face format as planned.
