1. academic FBS user conference "Symposium iPLANum"

Because the FBS user conferences, which take place regularely for users out of the rail industry, are hugely popular, we also want to offer our clients from research and teaching the opportunity to take part there. That's why we offer in 2016 for the first time an academic FBS user conference especially in regard to the use in research and teaching.

It was addresses to teachers, who supervise the use of FBS in the teaching and/or solve sceientific challenges with FBS. The establishments with an FBS-FuL-license should be allowed a participation at cost price.

Keyelements of the symposium iPLANum were among others.:

  • the exchance of experiences of the FBS users of research and teaching among each other and with the developers of FBS
  • latest trends out of the research and insight into the practise
  • mutual transfer of knowledge between academic and practise
  • support of a practice-oriented education with FBS
  • examples of issues - synthesis and differences from theory and practice
    Calculation of travel time in FBS or speed-integration-procedure?
    Which meaning has the Hungarian method for the creation of circulation plans?

The first academic FBS user conference took place in collaboration with the "Staatlichen Fachschule für Bau, Wirtschaft und Verkehr Gotha" on the 08. and 09. September 2016 in Gotha. You can find the programme here.

It contains among others:

  • specialist lecture to the usage of FBS in the research
