Welcoming Message from the Symposium Organising Committee

On behalf of the Symposium Organising Committee, we invite you to attend the 25th International Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and Tracks, taking place at Central Queensland University Rockhampton, Queensland, from 14-18 August 2017.

The International Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and Tracks is the leading international Symposium bringing together researchers, scientists and engineers from academia and industry in the field of ground vehicle dynamics to present and exchange their latest ideas and breakthroughs.

The biennial IAVSD Symposia have been held in internationally renowned locations and this event will, for the first time, take place at Central Queensland University in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. The organiser of this Symposium is the Centre for Railway Engineering that is an industry focused research organisation and is well known for its research expertise in train dynamics, locomotive, wagon and bogie dynamics, wagon/track system dynamics, simulation, instrumentation and field testing.

The Symposium will also offer an opportunity to participants to visit interesting places and to observe road and rail operations and advanced technologies in regional Australia.

CRElogowebWe look forward to welcoming your participation in what we believe will be a truly memorable Symposium.
