The IRSE Dutch Section has agreed to organise the IRSE's Aspect 2019 conference in cooperation with the IRSE UK and Delft University of Technology, where we will be hosted in its prestigious Aula and auditorium.

The venue will be Aula and Conference Centre of Delft University of Technology in the city of Delft in the Netherlands and the tentative dates for the event are in week 43 in 2019. The conference will open on October 22nd with the introductory day and welcome reception, the main conference days on October 23rd and 24th with a selection of Technical Visits being offered on October 25th.

The Introductory Day provides those without the budget or time available to attend the full conference with an effective and efficient opportunity to explore resilience through modeling and implementation as well as understanding what good looks like presented by those who have experienced it. An informal Evening Social at The Botanical Gardens welcomes delegates to Delft.

Our partner at Delft University of Technology is the Department of Transport & Planning, represented by Prof. Dr. Rob M.P. Goverde, Professor of Railway Traffic Operations & Management.
