The brochure for next Conference is available here.
Preliminary information about the papers to be presented and discussed in the meeting has been posted. The usual information about the weekend program, logistics and hospitality have been updated. Detailed program for the sessions will be released later.
We keep the same model of the previous conferences, that seems to have been very successful. We hope this last event of the cycle of International Conferences under FOZTUA project will continue (and improve!) the previous experiences.

Some news about our second FOZ TUA Conference (2012):

- dates are now defined: next 5-6-7 October (same week last year), in the same place. People are expected to arrive on Porto during 4, and to go by train to Foz Tua. Conference format for sessions will be similar: (hard) work during friday and saturday, visits sunday morning, and return to Porto along sunday. We expect to mail the new brochure and more details in the next few weeks.
- Papers for this year are expected to give more importance to Tua line and Tua valley, and railways in peripheral and mountainous regions (XIX century) (business, technological and management challenges). We will work with each one of you in order to plan new contributions, and be we will be happy to match the interests of portuguese and foreign researchers in joint papers. Of course, suggestions very much welcomed.

A conference proceedings book with last year papers is now under preparation and expected to have an edition released until end of August (around 500 pages). We need your help about your paper: please let me know if you want to make any revision of the original paper, and please send it in doc (word) format, if available. That will make our life easier. Please do it until end of APRIL.
Meanwhile we are also looking for an opportunity to publish the full collection (three years) with an international editor.

Weather seems to be very promising during the full weekend: mild hot and hot. Expect around 30 degrees celsius in Foz Tua.
Please note that Symington house, where working sessions will happen, has no air conditioning facilities. But I expect we will survive well. I suggest light garments.
Dressing code: casual, of course.
