RegioMove08 – Congress

The aim of the RegioMove is to showcase current trends and development in public transport. In addition to general current issues, the RegioMove08 in Mürzzuschlag will especially deal with the topic of “Regional Security”.

The „Call for Papers“ resulted  in a wide range of very interesting suggestions of topics for the RegioMove08, which are reflected in the symposium’s four main themes.

Within the congress-sessions, selected experts will cover a wide range of aspects of the term „security“. One special emphasis will be placed on the security of future accessibility and availability of housing, workplace and recreational areas.

This also applies to the accessibility of businesses for both people and goods. For this purpose special structures in financing an organisation are necessary.

The bonding of regions is a main aim of the European Football Cup 2008, whereas during this event the secure transportation of big numbers of passengers needs to be assured by public transport. This requires special provisions, both edificial and organisational, which will be covered from different point of views.

For all efforts to obtain secure systems, technology can contribute a great deal. Within the symposium current projects and solutions from the areas of image processing, emergency telecommunication and other technology usage will be showcased.

 The detailed congress programme will be decided on within the next few weeks. The current versions can be found on

The congress and exhibition will be accompanied by exclusive social events, such as the Come-Together on April, 23 and the gala event at the Südbahnmuseum.
