INVITATION

The Association of Consulting Engineers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ACE BiH) is organising the Fourth BiH Congress on Railways. The Congress is going to be held on 26 and 27 October 2017 in Sarajevo. The Congress is sponsored by the Ministry of Communications and Transport of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Congress is held at a time when optimal solutions for the role of railways in land transport of people and goods are being sought. The share of railway transport in the total transport of people and goods is on the decline in developed countries. As for many developing countries, railway transport is uncompetitive and poorly integrated with other transport sub-systems. Slow speed, high prices and a lack of trust make potential users choose other transportation modes. How can railways become more efficient and useful to both the ever-moving urban population and factories that transport their freight? This question should be answered by experts of specific countries, international unions and bank institutions through three fundamental activities:
• Creation of a transport policy,
• Development of an implementation strategy,
• Ensuring funds for implementing the strategy.
Transport and transport infrastructure connect us. The transport market is vast. All matters concerning transport are reduced to two indicators: time and energy, which are further reduced to one indicator – money. And where there is money, there is the banks. You probably know that major international financial institutions have been investing significant funds into the development of railway transport. Their documents state:
• Railway transport promotes economic development,
• Railway transport contributes to the reduction of emission of harmful gases, making it completely acceptable from the aspect of climate change.
Over the past twenty-odd years, the European Commission has undertaken activities to restructure the European transport market and strengthen the position of railways in relation to other modes of land transport. The Commission is currently focusing its efforts on three major areas of crucial importance to the development of strong and competitive railway transport:
• Opening the railway transport market,
• Enhancing the interoperability and safety of European networks,
• Developing railway transport infrastructure.
The Fourth BiH Congress on Railways is international in character. It is an opportunity to exchange good and bad experience of researchers, operators, infrastructure managers, logistics officers and intermodal transport stakeholders in implementing the European transport policy concerning traffic. BiH falls under the group of countries with underdeveloped railways, therefore experts are expected to contribute to a prudent creation and implementation of the transport policy. The government and financial sectors are expected to participate in the Congress and contribute by presenting activities regarding transport police implementation, specific projects, as well as by creating a realistic picture for generating a railway development strategy in the upcoming period. The below topics will be addressed at the Congress:
• Railway reorganisation and management
• Railway transport policy and the implementation thereof
• Interoperability
• Railway infrastructure
• Traffic safety

All reviewed papers will be published in the Proceedings. The Organisation Board looks forward to your participation in the Fourth BiH Congress on Railways.

Chairman of ACE BIH:
PhD Ešref Gačanin

TOPICS OF THE CONGRESS
