5th International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security

Published:  23 February, 2012

Tunnels are critical parts of our growing infrastructure network. They create challenges for incident prevention and management, fire protection and security against attacks or sabotage. On the 14-16th March this year SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden is once again organising the International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security – ISTSS.

The Symposium will be hosted in the historic Roosevelt Hotel in central Manhattan, NY. The international response has been extremely positive with close to 250 delegates already registered.

For the first time there will be parallel sessions in order to meet the enormous interest in and need for dialogue in this important field. We have six prominent keynote speakers who will present papers relating to managing security issues, mitigating the impact of fires, regulations, risk reduction, fire safety engineering and human behaviour in tunnels. The whole program offers approximately 70 scientific papers in the fields of safety, security, explosions, active and passive fire protection, human behaviour, ventilation and much more.
