An Introduction to the Congress

The IMVC has long been a popular forum for ventilation researchers, practitioners, academics, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, consultants and government officials all over the world to explore research results, exchange best field practices, launching new products to build a better and safer industry. It has also served as a useful forum to attract and train future ventilation professionals and mine planning engineers, as well as for mining companies to search for better practices to provide better ventilation planning.

China is a major mining country with around 100,000 registered underground mining operations, and ventilation plays a key role in the safe and effective operation of these operations. The 11th IMVC is expected to attract in excess of 200 international and domestic delegates from all branches of mining industry, manufacturers, research establishments and universities concerning mine ventilation, occupational health and safety management.

The 11th IMVC will be hosted by Xi’an University of Science and Technology and China University of Mining and Technology, and sponsored by China’s huge mining industry, equipment manufacturers and government. Both universities have made significant contributions in mine ventilation and played a leading role in the development of China’s natural resource and energy industry.
