TopicsThe first thematic area of the Symposium –
MINE DEVELOPMENT – focuses on the physical development of mining projects:
• Mine Planning, Organization and Logistics
• Continuous Mining Technologies for Hard-Rock Applications
• Machine Technology and Equipment
• Operational Experiences
• Future Technological Options
• Mining Processes and Resource Efficiency

Additionally, the second thematic area of AIMS 2013 – 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
Main BodySince the first AIMS Symposium in the year 1987, the Symposium has become a regular meeting of international ground control and rockbolting 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 – mining processes and technology as well as sustainable development of mineral resources.
Thus, the first thematic area of the Symposium –
MINE DEVELOPMENT – focuses on the physical development of mining projects:
• Mine Planning, Organization and Logistics
• Continuous Mining Technologies for Hard-Rock Applications
• Machine Technology and Equipment
• Operational Experiences
• Future Technological Options
• Mining Processes and Resource Efficiency

Additionally, the second thematic area of AIMS 2013 – 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

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.
