May 2021: International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security (ISTSS)

May 2021: International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security (ISTSS)
New date: 5th - 7th May 2021

ISTSS 2020 is postponed until May 5 – 7 2021 in Stockholm. The ISTSS comittee will keep us updated as soon as they know more details about the venue.

RISE Research Institutes of Sweden (Safety – Fire Research) organizes biennially ISTSS. The focus has mainly been on fires and safety in tunnels, but it is shifting more and more towards security including also other underground spaces such as garages, metros and caverns.
The new terrorist threats and focus on how to solve these problems is increasing. The need for expertise in this area for underground infrastructure in general is continuously increasing. We urge scientists and practicing engineers in this field to consider ISTSS as good quality forum for presenting their results. The aim is to make ISTSS as a natural forum for scientists and practicing engineers to exchange information in the future.

ISTSS regularly attracts over 200 delegates from all parts of the world and represents an arena for researchers to discuss safety and security issues associated with complex underground transportation systems. The ISTSS see that new energy carriers (vehicles with new type of propellant) protection has become a major field of interest. Further, risk and engineering analysis continues to be an area that attract many. The new energy carriages will in near future become one of the most important research fields.
