17th IFAC Symposium on Control, Optimization and Automation in Mining, Mineral and Metal Processing (IFAC MMM) 2016 Vienna

  • Conference Call
  • The IFAC MMM 2016 pro­vides a forum for pro­fes­sion­als, researchers, and experts in con­trol, min­ing, min­eral and metal pro­cess­ing to review state-​of-​the-​art con­trol, opti­miza­tion, and automa­tion tech­nolo­gies in the field. The event will com­mence on August 31Sep­tem­ber 2, 2016 in Vienna, Aus­tria at the Vienna Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy.

    The sym­po­sium invites peo­ple from both indus­try and acad­e­mia to exchange knowl­edge, to raise new ques­tions, and to ben­e­fit from open discussions.
