The contribution of ITA COSUF to AFTES 2017 is:
Technical Session & ITA COSUF Round Table
Designing, Operating and Upgrading Complex Underground Hubs
The round table will enhance discussions between you and other experts about complex underground hubs. Questions may be raised starting from design up to the operational phase including upgrading concerns. The goal is to exchange knowledge between all tunnel professionals: the asset owners, operators, rescue services, engineers, managers and consultants. Good practices, bad practices, needs for improvement and new solutions for these complex underground hubs will be addressed.
Please register for the ITA COSUF Workshop on 14 November 2017 in Paris (France). Download the preliminary programme via the button "Download attachment". In the leaflet there is a Registration Link.
ISTSS 2018 endorsed by ITA COSUF
The next International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security will be held in Borås, Sweden 14 – 16 March 2018 !
Safety and Security have been high on the scientific agenda for decades, no more so than after the tragic attacks of nine-eleven in New York. The success of the International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security (ISTSS) is a tribute to the pressing need for continued international research and dialogue on these issues, perhaps in particular connected to complex infrastructure such as tunnels and tunnel networks.
The focus has mainly been on fires and safety in tunnels, but it is shifting more and more towards security. 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.
Who should attend?
Tunnels are an increasingly important part of the infrastructure network. They create challenges for traffic and emergency management, fire safety and security against attacks or sabotage. This Symposium will offer an excellent opportunity for experts working with transport, emergency management, risk analysis, infrastructure security, tunnel consultants, system providers, tunnel operation and research to exchange their experiences in an international forum.
