2016 has been a big year for the Wessex Institute Conferences. The cause of international knowledge transfer has been advanced a great deal by these events.
Whether the topic is Big Data, Sustainability, Waste Management, or Defence, these issues impact us all in one way or another. Held in locations around Europe, including Greece, Spain, and Italy, these conferences bring scholars from around the world together.
For example, the Comprail 2016 Conference was co-chaired by Dr Norio Tomii of Chiba Institute of Technology, Japan; Prof Bin Ning of Beijing Jiaotong University, China; and Dr Panos Tzieropoulos of the Polytechnique of Lausanne, Switzerland. This diversity of backgrounds and opinions allows for the true exchange and advancement of new ideas.
