About IWC

The International Wheelset Congress (IWC) was founded by Lucchini in 1963. The first congress took place in Bergamo, Italy in that year. Since then, with only two exceptions it has been held every third year. The International Wheelset Congress is the oldest railway technical conference in the world.

One of the premier international rail conferences, The International Wheelset Congress, attracts engineers from the international rail community. The congress provides a platform for rail operators, equipment builders, component suppliers, academia and government, regulatory and standards organisations. It is also a forum for dissemination of technology and advancements in the design and manufacture of rail wheelset components and their performance to promote increased productivity, performance and safety in rail operations.

The 15th International Wheelset Congress was held in Prague, Czech Republic in September 2007. The location of the congress is chosen worldwide according to a rotational rule.

The 16th International Wheelset Congress was held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa in March 2010. The event was hosted by Ringrollers Pty Ltd under the auspices of UNIFE and ERWA.

17th International Wheelset Congress will take place in Ukraine on 2013 and will be hosted by KLW-WheelCo.
