Digitalization, innovation, sustainable mining operations and decarbonization, are set to continue to be a top priority for the mining industry globally. Pushed by various factors such as stricter safety requirements, higher production efficiency and cost-saving targets, cybersecurity, supply, and value chain disruptions, ambitious decarbonization targets, pressure from local communities and investors, and much more.

Tackling these challenges and commitments requires significant collaboration initiatives across the industry. The key focus should be on bridging technologies, processes, and people. The mission of the Digitalization in Mining conferences organized by the Mining Innovation Network is to offer a platform and a place where the industry can meet and discuss the best way to innovate, bridge technologies, processes, and people together, and move the industry forward.

Across the three dedicated tracks, Artificial Intelligence & Data in Mining, Robotics & Automation in Mining, and ESG Tech in Mining, attendees will gain access to key sessions addressing:

  • Artificial Intelligence and Data
  • Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Connectivity
  • Automation and Remote Mining Operations
  • Robotics and Machinery Innovation
  • Efficiency Across the Mining Value Chain 
  • Electrification of Mine Equipment 
  • Decarbonization and Technologies for a Net Zero future
  • Mine Design and Predictive Maintenance 
  • Sustainable and Safe Mining Operations
