The Portuguese Commission of Tunnels and Underground Space (CPT) of the Portuguese Geotechnical Society (SPG) and the National Laboratory for Civil Engineering (LNEC) are organizing the 5th International Seminar on Underground Space with the lemma “Health and Safety in Underground Space” . The Seminar will be held at the Congress Center of the National Laboratory for Civil Engineering in October 18th, 2019..
The seminar is sponsored by the International Tunneling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) and has the institutional support of ABTUS (Belgium), AETOS (Spain), AFTES (France), SIG (Italy) and FGU-STS (Switzerland), CPT partners in the BEFIPS partnership. It has as well the support of the Order of Engineers, the Order of Architects and the Portuguese Association of Designers and Consultants.
The lemma of the Seminar reflects the interests and concerns of the professional community of the built underground space about vital issues related with the human presence during construction and service. The multi-disciplinary and transversal scope of the Seminar is evident on the multitude of professional domains: Engineering areas of Mechanics, Electricity and Electronics, Computation, Control and Safety, and, last but not least, Architecture and Psychology.
CPT envisages renewing its high standard of organization built since the very beginning, more than 10 years ago. We hope to welcome numerous participants, both CPT affiliates and professionals of underground space engineering, as well as students.
