First International Conference Mines of the Future

Modern mining needs to be profitable, it should operate with environmental integrity, be considerate of social concerns and be supported by effective government systems. At the same time, mining companies face operational challenges. Such challenges will only be solved through very important changes, in the way the mining sector engages with society, uses energy, protects the environment, educates professionals and pursues innovations. Mines of the future will need to be different to those of today.

The key objective of the 1st International Conference Mines of the Future is to share the latest developments on mining expertise, activities, developments and research that support mines of the future.

Main Topics will be:

Special Focus 2018 will be:

Mines of the Future will offer a special focus on the EU Horizon 2020 Imp@ct project.

We invite professionals from the mining industry and practitioners from consulting companies, equipment suppliers and software providers, people from research institutions and government agencies as well as university scholars to attend this Conference. An additional objective of this Conference is to encourage MSc and PhD students to showcase their research.

Upon completion of the conference, authors have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in a special issue of the internationally refereed journal Minerals (ISSN 2075-163X; Impact Factor 2.088, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/minerals). Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2018. 

We look forward to welcoming you at this unique Conference.
