 Submit your abstract

To submit your abstract please note the following guidelines:

  1. Abstracts must not be more than a maximum of 3 pages in length and must state in which topic you are proposing to enter your paper.
  2. You should ensure that you clearly state your name, company, job title, and the e-mail address at which we can contact you.
  3. Abstracts must set out the following elements:
    • The scope of the subject
    • The issues at stake
    • Objectives or proposed outcome
    • Potential for implementation and added value to managing safety at the road rail/interface
      Please ensure that in your abstract you emphasise the added value to the railway operator that will result from the reduction of risk.
  4. Abstracts must be written in English using MS Word or saved in a PDF file and in 12pt Times New Roman. They must then be submitted electronically to suzuki uic.org
  5. Please note that abstracts that are seeking to market a particular product or service will not be accepted. There will, however, be an exhibition at which products and services can be promoted.
  6. Abstracts accepted will be presented during the symposium and must be accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation in PowerPoint 97 or later version. A full explanatory paper may also be prepared.
  7. Symposium delegates will receive the abstracts as part of their Conference pack. The papers/slides will be published on the symposium website.
  8. Please also note that for selection of the abstracts, UIC, the organizer of the symposium, will judge impartially with comprehensive and thorough consideration of the following aspects; purpose of the symposium, usefulness of the paper, new ideas incorporated in the paper, and balance among the regions.
