Title: "Performance and safety challenges of the next generation railways."

Abstract: "As a part of its Green Deal, EU has set the objective to shift the 75% of inland freight carried today by road to rail and inland waterways. Such a goal requires new railway transportation paradigms (e.g., moving block and virtual coupling) that must face cutting-edge ICT-related technologies (e.g., fast and reliable communication and networking, fail-safe positioning, data-driven techniques). This talk introduces these railway paradigms, focusing on the non-functional and safety requirements future railways demand."

Venue: Workshop on Challenges in Performance Methods for Software Development (WOSP-C 2021,, co-located with the 12th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (
