The 5th International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS 2013) will be held in Brussels, Belgium on September 9-11, 2013 under the auspices of the International Association for Hydrogen Safety (IA HySafe). The conference will be hosted by the Joint Research Centre (Institute for Energy and Transport) of the European Commission and it will improve the public awareness and trust in hydrogen technologies by communicating a better understanding of both the hazards and risks associated with hydrogen and their management. The first four conferences in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011 succeeded in attracting the most relevant experts from all over the world, by providing an open platform for the presentation and discussion of new findings, information and data on hydrogen safety – from basic research to applied development and to standardization and regulatory issues. As we are approaching the beginning of the commercialization phase of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2015, ICHS 2013 will focus on progress in safety of hydrogen technologies and infrastructure, as crucial/essential means to enable the transition to a zero carbon energy system. Therefore, the conference seeks papers in a wide range of hydrogen safety topics like (but not limited to) Regulations Codes and Standards, safety in H2 infrastructure, safety solutions for the implemetation of H2 technologies, hydrogen and hydrogen blends behavior, physical effects, consequence analysis, incidents, accidents and near misses, hydrogen effects on materials and components, safety of energy storage, risk management, fuel cells related safety issues. All contributions to ICHS 2013 will be evaluated exclusively in the light of their scientific content and relevance to hydrogen safety.
