  • Land use, mobility and line planning
  • Capacity and robustness in saturated networks
  • Optimal network timetabling and maintenance schedules
  • Passenger flows in stations, on platform, and dwell time distribution
  • Impact of signaling and safety systems on capacity and punctuality
  • Validation of stochastic analytical and simulation models
  • Timetable stability, punctuality, temporal and spatial distributions of timetable margins
  • Impact of train priorities, dispatching rules and dedicated lines on network capacity
  • Scheduling and routing of passenger and freight trains
  • Real-time rescheduling, disturbance and disruption management
  • Energy-efficient driving and driver advisory systems
