XIV International Congress on Energy and Mineral Resources

The Spanish National Association of Mining Engineers, the High Council of Professional Associations of Mining Engineers of Spain and the Official Professional Association of Mining Engineers of the South of Spain are pleased to announce the holding of the 14th International Congress on Energy and Mineral Resources in Seville in April 2018 (from the 10th to the 13th).

With the broad and exciting theme “Sustaining the future”, this Congress intends to become a forum for discussion where all the individuals and entities related to the different fields of action in which mining engineers are present can search for sustainable solutions to the present technological challenges.

Experts, researchers and professionals of companies and administrations will have the chance to enjoy a meeting point to exchange knowledge and, why not, find business opportunities. To this end, technical sessions will be completed with an exhibition area to showcase products and services in front of an international specialized audience. The term international gains a special significance in this edition with the simultaneous holding of the “Slope Stability in Open Pit Mining and Civil Engineering” Symposium.

In addition to the working sessions, there will be technical visits and an attractive cultural programme for participants and guests, with Seville and its surroundings offering especially attractive opportunities in this field.

His Majesty the King Felipe VI will hold the Presidency of the Honor Committee of the Congress, to which the President of the Spanish Government and the President of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, among other authorities, have confirmed their membership.

The congress will be structured on the basis of five thematic areas which include: exploration and extraction of mineral resources; raw materials and their processing; energy; water; and management systems and regulatory framework.

The Congress also offers the possibility of participating as an exhibitor. This is a good chance to present new products and innovate by sharing experiences with professionals, researchers, experts and scientists of recognized prestige.
