Since the first AIMS conference on Rockbolting in Mining in the year 1987, the symposium has become a regular meeting of international ground control and rockbolting experts.
In many cases, successful rockbolting application is enhanced through attention to detail. Benchmarking between different mining operations and sectors can point out areas which have potential for improvement.
The symposium continues to provide a platform for knowledge exchange between international representatives of mining, tunnelling, suppliers, authorities and research.
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.
