The Institute of Mining Engineering I at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany has been holding symposia on topics concerning mineral raw materials supply and mining for more than 20 years under the title Aachen International Mining Symposia. Since the first AIMS conference on Rockbolting in Mining in the year 1987, the Symposium has become a regular meeting of international mining and minerals experts.
Industrialized countries economies heavily rely on the continuous supply of mineral raw materials. The mining sector world-wide has to improve the mining processes, the technology and the efficiency to cope with the increasing demand of the industrialized countries as well as the emerging markets. This goes hand in hand with addressing the global challenge of sustainable development in mining.
Consequently the Symposium on Mineral Resources and Mine Development focuses on two interacting thematic areas – sustainable development and supply of mineral resources as well as mining processes and technology.
Thus, the first thematic area of the Symposium – MINERAL RESOURCES – focuses on sustainable development and supply of mineral resources and related topics:
· Mining Policies, Strategies and Concepts
· Mineral Resources Management and Supply Situation (incl. Critical Raw Materials)
· Legal Aspects, Permits and Financing
· Environmental Challenges and Approaches
· Views, Statements and Needs of Governments, Sectors and Enterprises
Additionally, the second thematic area of AIMS 2015 – MINE DEVELOPMENT – focuses on the physical development of mining projects:
· Mine Planning, Organization, Infrastructure and Logistics
· Continuous Mining Technologies for Hard-Rock Applications
· Machine Technology and Equipment
· Operational Experiences
· Backfill Operations
· Health and Safety in Mining
· Simulation of Mining Processes
· Communication and Information Technologies
· Mining Processes and Resource Efficiency
Call for Papers:
The organizing committee invites international experts from industry, research institutions and politics to present at the Symposia. Interested contributors are kindly asked to submit their abstracts via the Symposium website at www.aims.rwth-aachen.de.
The abstracts should be up to 300 words, written in English and the corresponding authors should be clearly indicated.
The Abstract should include following:
· Title of Paper
· Short summary of the paper
· Complete name, title and address of author including email-contact
We expect approximately 350 delegates from all over the world, so you can look forward to meeting senior representatives and decision makers of governments, industry, research institutions, investments communities, suppliers of the minerals and mining industry and related fields.
Against the background of the imperial city of Aachen, both the exhibition at the conference venue and the dinner party in the historical Aula Carolina will offer ample opportunity to make new contacts and renew old ones.
The AIMS 2015 Symposium will be sponsored by RAG Mining Solutions GmbH, Becker Mining Systems AG, Caterpillar Global Mining Europe GmbH, Sandvik Mining and Construction Central Europe GmbH and BARTEC Sicherheits-Schaltanlagen GmbH .
