Paris – London in the days before Eurostar: A bumpy ride as RGCF can well attest!
RGCFs first conference and debate is scheduled for May, on the topic The British railway system: organisation and infrastructure manager-TOC relations. Speakers: Richard Schofield, Aera General Manager Kent, Network Rail, and Bruno Auger, Rail Director at Keolis.

It is now launching a contest for authors in three rail-related topical fields:
- Technical expertise in infrastructure, rolling stock or other aspects of the railway world;
- Transport systems economics;
- The history and geography of railways, transport systems or mobility in general.
Three assessment criteria:
- Relevance of the subject to railway operations;
- Clarity of the message;
- Understandability of the content by railway professionals not specialised in the subject covered
The contest is aimed at doctoral students as well as holders of an engineering degree or PhD earned less than five years ago. The articles will be examined by a panel of readers set up by the journal, made up of professionals of the railway community.
The panel shall select among the articles submitted those to be published in the journal. The author of the best article in each topical field will be awarded a prize in the form of a 1000 € scholarship for further study.
Timeframe and practical aspects of submission:
Deadline for submission of articles: 15 september 2011
Designation of winners in December 2011. The selected articles will thereafter be published in various issues of the journal, according to the editorial plan
The articles are to be submitted in the French and English languages. They will be published in French but RGCF wishes, in its drive to expand its circulation, to offer an English version to its non-French-speaking subscribers.
The articles are to be sent to the journal (email@example.com) as text-only files, with any accompanying illustrations, photos or figures supplied in separate files. The maximum size of the text accepted is 25 000 characters, including spaces.
