About the conference

You are kindly invited to participate in the

to be held between 5 and 8 September, 2022 in Budapest, Hungary, hosted by the Section of Rolling Stock at the Hungarian Scientific Society of Mechanical Engineers (SSME), at the Danubius Hotel Hungaria, Budapest.

The Scope Of the conference

This twelfth Conference (from the first, every BOGIE Conference was held in Budapest from the Year 1989 with a recurring cycle of three years) will cover topics related to research, development, design, manufacturing and operation of the most sophisticated mechanical units of railway vehicles: the bogies and the running gears.

The Aim Of the conference

is to offer an opportunity for the specialists in the field from all over the World to present results of their activities, both the very latest results and results achieved over the last 3 years. The Conference will also enable participants to become acquainted with the work of others, to promote further development by means of discussion and comments, and to profit from making new personal contacts. Overall the Conference will help to define new directions for future technical research and development.


The official language of the Conference is English.


The opportunity is offered to exhibit models, photos and documentations of products, technologies and know-how for publicity purposes.





Accommodation should individually be arranged by the participants.
The organisers have made discounted reservation possibilities for accommodation for the time span 5 – 8 September 2022 in the Danubius Hotel Hungaria, the venue of the Conference as follows:

Room type
Single-bed room/night
