Prof. Dr. Carsten Drebenstedt
Chair of Surface Mining
TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
Dear Colleagues


We kindly invite you to the 22nd International Symposium on Mine Planning and Equipment Selection. MPES2013 will be held in Dresden and Freiberg in the Federal State of Saxony − an important mining region. Our mining tradition goes far back to the year 1163 when silver was first discovered in Freiberg. Based on this mining laws were introduced and the first mining authority was established here.

In the year 1765 the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg was founded as the oldest mining university in the world. Substantial research and education in the field of mining and metallurgy lead to technical innovations, back then up until today.

Exchange of knowledge and experiences as well as discussions between international experts form the basis of developing new and efficient technological solutions for processes along the value chain.

Take the chance and join MPES2013 as a speaker:
