Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to thank you for your patience and continued support to the 3rd Asian Conference on Railway Engineering and Transportation (ART 2020) during this global crisis.


After a thorough evaluation of the global emergency by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and along with the strong suggestion from Korean government, the Organizing Committee has made the decision to postpone this conference in Jeju to November 2021. We believe that postponing the conference is the best option to ensure a successful and safe event for our attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors and we will look to your continued support to make the conference.


As we are committed to preparing an engaging scientific program, we would like to provide you with an opportunity to modify or resubmit your abstract from February 2021, if you want. Your current abstract will remain in our system as submitted unless you make the decision to withdraw your paper. We will open the submission portal for new abstracts and for making modifications to existing abstracts from February 2021.


The support you have shown for the ART 2020 is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to your involvement in the program in the ART 2021. Should you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact us at


With warmest regards,


Dr. Seon Keun Hwang
