We encourage and invite professionals across the world to submit paper proposals for the Monorailex 2023 Conference in Brazil with the kind support of Metro São Paulo.

Monorailex is the annual conference of the International Monorail Association with its goal to provide a platform to present new research and development of monorail systems and operational findings. This platform targets towards experts involved in transportation planning in communities and metropolitan regions, in the industry as monorail system suppliers, the supply and service industries for vehicles and infrastructure, researchers and operators for mass transportation for an exchange.

The International Monorail Association also welcomes researchers to submit their original articles, which can be of academic or of practical value, to be published for the first time. We seek contributions that illustrate the different transportation systems, and ways to enhance their efficiency and showcase opportunities for empowering citizens in finding solutions in mass transportation.
