Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Fifth International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering (ISMSSE2021) will be hosted by Central Mining Institute in Katowice, Poland on 21–25 November 2021. The ISMSSE2021 will be hosted in a hybrid mode, giving the opportunity for a face-to-face or online experience, no matter where you are.

Since 2011,International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering has been successfully held for four sessions. The objective of ISMSSE 2021 is to create an international forum for discussing the challenges associated with safety in the mining industry and to present advances in technology. ISMSSE 2021 is thus a meeting of scientists and professionals who establish ambitious aims to confront ideas and experiences, evaluate implemented solutions, and discuss new ideas that improve safety in the mining industry. We are inviting the entire global mining community to connect with each other and to share and explore current challenges and opportunities.

This time, ISMSSE2021 will be held in hybrid mode, and experts and engineers from all over the world will have the opportunity to gather in Katowice or meet virtually to share new achievements in the field of mine safety research. I believe that, with the support of mine safety science and engineering scholars, the conference will continue to contribute to the development of mine safety science and engineering.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
