EXPO: Call for Papers - Railways and Harbours Conference
Recent Gauteng Business News
2nd Railways and Harbours Conference and Exhibition will be hosted at the
Expo Centre, in Johannesburg from 6-8 April 2011, by Railways Africa and The
Media and Events Co.
This industry event is held every second year and the last event, held in 2009, at the Cape Town International Convention centre, was well attended and received. Despite the impact of the recession, the exhibition saw over 80 exhibitors covering two exhibition halls and 1128 visitors.
The conference takes a broad view in terms of the entire industry and the way the industry is integrated between Rail, Ports and Mining throughout the African continent. Also, always keeping close guard on the changing trends due to technology, supply chain and material through to economic stability and of course the ever increasing carbon footprint.
The conference will run from the morning of the 6th, through to lunchtime on the 8th, with two venues, uniquely designed, within the exhibition hall. It is estimated that between 42 and 50 papers will be presented during the conference.
This is the first call for papers. Topic outlines can be viewed on the website as well as submission instructions. All interested parties need to be aware that presentations are to be original, and therefore may not have been presented before. The papers should be of a technical nature, aiming to solve problems, display innovations or put forward case studies and should NOT be a direct sales pitch or company profile. Translation services are available if the speaker cannot present in English. Closing date for submissions is the 25th of August, 2010.
Once we have received the abstracts and start the finalisation of speakers we will apply for accreditation from professional bodies such as SAICE as we did last year for CPD points to be claimed.
Running in tandem with the conference is the exhibition, aimed at showcasing a mix of suppliers, contributors and operators from the Rail, Port and Mining environment.
