10th International Mine Ventilation Congress (IMVC 2014)
Sun City Resort, South Africa
Frank von Glehn, Chair
IMVC 2014 will open in October 2013
The aim of the International Mine Ventilation Congresses is to promote and nurture communication between ventilation professionals in order to improve mine ventilation engineering and the related health and safety aspects. The focus of IMVC 2014 in South Africa will be the sharing of knowledge gained since the previous congress with a view to improving, developing and refining aspects of ventilation, refrigeration, cooling, health and safety, and related energy efficiency in mines internationally.
The theme of IMVC 2014 is “Managing mine ventilation systems in the modern context: meeting mining, economic, sustainability, and health and safety challenges”. The congress programme will focus on all aspects of mine ventilation and the management of related systems.

Orzán Congres S.L. +34 886 116 649
You are invited to participate in the European Rock Mechanics Symposium 2014 (EUROCK 2014) to be held in Vigo, Spain, on May 27-29, 2014. This Symposium is a common endeavour of the University of Vigo and the SEMR (Spanish National Group of the ISRM), who are doing their best to offer a pleasant and interesting event.
We have prepared an appealing program with a good number of keynote lectures by some of the world’s leading experts on rock mechanics. Two short courses and a Workshop will also take place before the congress and some interesting visits to different mine and civil engineering works are in preparation for the aftermath.
You will also have the privilege to visit our town and region. Lively and dynamic, Vigo is a young and modern city, very famous for the beauty of its bay and the quality of their fish and shellfish delicacies. Located in the always green region of Galicia in North Western Spain, it is also very close to the Portuguese border and Porto. Santiago de Compostela and its “Camino” is only 45 minutes away.
It is a special honour for me to host for the first time in Spain the Symposium EUROCK and I strongly hope that an exciting program and the charms of this far-west beautiful part of Europe will combine to make this a successful and memorable event.
