This event is postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic but no date has yet been set.
The World Congress on High-Speed Rail is a UIC event which is held every 2-3 years. The Congress has been successfully convened for ten times since its first edition in 1992, and now is renowned worldwide as the most prominent and a large-scale global event on high-speed rail addressing both HSR operation and technology issues. The 7th edition was held in Beijing in 2010.
The 11th Congress, hosted by CR and UIC and organized by China Academy of Railway Sciences Corporation Limited (CARS), will be held from Jun 30 to July 3, 2020, in Beijing. This is the second time that the congress is held in China, which demonstrates not only the significant achievements of China Railway and its far-reaching influence on international railways but also the close attention of the world to HSR development in China.
