Welcome

On behalf of the organising committee of the 2nd International Conference Mines of the Future, we invite you to Aachen, Germany.

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 2nd International Conference Mines of the Future (Science, Technology, Innovation and Responsibility) is to share the latest developments on mining expertise, activities, developments and research that support mines of the future.

We look forward to meeting you at this what promises to be a most stimulating and enjoyable Conference!
