The ITSF is a forum for exchanging state of the art ideas, processes, procedures and technologies in personnel, environmental and equipment safety from a variety of high-energy physics and synchrotron radiation laboratories around the world.  

The ITSF 2022 will be hosted by CERN in October 2022 ( https://home.web.cern.ch/ ). Participants may attend either in person or online.  

Dates: October 24th (Mon.) to 28th (Fri.) 2022

Last update: the fire workshop initially scheduled for Monday 24th afternoon will be integrated into the programme (on Wednesday 26th October). Speakers will have the opportunity to expose their ongoing projects related to fire safety in particle accelerator facilities. This is meant to be an interactive session where the objective is for the participants to give each other feedback and advice.
