Welcome to the 9th International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security – ISTSS 2020

RISE has decided to postpone the ISTSS 2020 11-13th of March in Munich based on the latest assessment of the coronavirus.

The recent spread of the coronavirus COVID-2019 in new countries last week has obliged the organization committee to reassess the current situation. The latest developments of the coronavirus have significantly increased our concerns about the situation, and the related health and safety issues of the conference participants, partners and employees are our number one priority.

Being the leading conference on tunnel fire safety and security we have decided to maintain the same contents and presentations as accepted but delay the conference until the situation become more stable. For authors of papers and posters, we would like to communicate with you if you are interested to present the work at the postponed conference. We will soon inform about new dates and location.

We are aware that this decision will require registered guests and exhibitors to re-schedule their attendance. We hope that, given the current situation, you will understand our decision and that we will meet again under more safe and stable conditions.

We will keep you updated, but If you have any questions you are of course welcome to contact us.
