Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The global mining community faces significant challenges, ranging from technological to social, environmental and economic issues. The mining community has confronted and solved such challenges over the centuries and has thereby delivered important contributions to the use and development of our mineral resources. This Special Issue aims to collect high quality research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on the following three topics: mineral resources; mining technologies; and responsible mining. The Special Issue will publish selected papers from the 2nd International Conference on Mining in Europe (http://www.aims.rwth-aachen.de), 7–8 June 2017, Aachen, Germany. The key objective of the 2nd International Conference on Mining in Europe is to share the latest developments on mining expertise, activities, developments and research in Europe and beyond. 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 academic scholars and researchers to attend this conference. We are cordially inviting you to join us at the conference and also to submit your manuscript to this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Bernd Lottermoser
