The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for the world's leading scientific and technical communities to interact and address the main issues and the key challenges of the mining and civil construction industry in the beginning of the 21st century in order to reduce its environmental and health impacts, life cycle assessment, risk analysis, hazard detection and control, environmental and health consequences and liability, waste management, monitoring and projection techniques, geotechnical issues, propabilistic modelling, geoenvironmental engineering, dam and embankment design and case studies.

Who should attend
Geotechnical companies, mining companies, government agencies, the environmental community, the investment community, research and development organizations and academic institutions.

The official language of the conference will be English. There will be simultaneous interpretation to/from Greek.

The Organizing Committee is seeking a variety of abstracts that clearly demonstrate advances in mineral resources management and environmental geo-technology in the following areas:

Risk assessment in mining, metallurgical and waste disposal sites
Life cycle assessment in mining, metallurgical industry and waste disposal sites
Hazard detection and control
Remediation of contaminated soils and mining/metallurgical sites
Mine – quarry reclamation / revegetation
Mine closure - post mining land use
Environmental geochemistry of ore deposits, tailings and waste rocks
Solid waste management
Geotechnical aspects of mine waste
Dam and waste dumps design, construction and stability
Advanced modeling techniques in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering
Advanced monitoring techniques (remote sensing, decision support and alerting techniques)
Engineering geology applications
