Train delays and cancellations cannot be avoided completely because of various unexpected events, which occur to the railways almost every day. Under the circumstance, it is important to recover the railways rapidly back to the normal status, and meanwhile reduce the negative impact to passengers as much as possible. The speakers in this seminar will discuss how to manage large railway incidents (generally called disruptions), as well as the way of measuring and modelling passenger delay.
