Mining, Mineral and Metal Processing 2020

The 6th IFAC Workshop on Mining, Mineral and Metal Processing, MMM 2021 for short, is a conference co-organized by University of Lorraine (Nancy) and ArcelorMittal Research and Development center. MMM 2021 promotes the exchange of ideas and developments in control engineering in the MMM field.

MMM 2021 will provide a forum for professionals, researchers, and experts in control, mining, mineral and metal processing to review state-of-the-art in control, optimization, and automation technologies in the field. Both academic and industrial control engineering practitioners have the opportunity to present their work and exchange research ideas with colleagues from across the globe.

The event is co-sponsored by the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), of which SAGIP (http://www.sagip.org/) is the National Member Organisation for France.

Deadline

May 4, 2021: Acceptance notification

June 14, 2021: Final manuscript submission

Scope

The Workshop will provide 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. Both academic and industrial control engineering practitioners have the opportunity to present their work and exchange research ideas with colleagues from across the globe.

The topics of the Workshop will be in link with the scope of the Mining, Mineral and Metal Processing Technical Committee dedicated to research and development, education and technology transfer in the following fields of application: any kind of mining operation, mineral processing, production of ferrous & non-ferrous metal, ore preparation, flotation, iron making, steel making, casting, hot/cold rolling, forming, forging, heat treatment, annealing, surface treatment, galvanizing, protective coating, welding, manufacturing, assembling, metal recycling processes, waste treatment, transport, haulage, power generation & supply as well as energy and environmental issues in the MMM industry.

with a specific focus for the workshop on Health-Aware Control Design Strategy, Advanced control approaches, AI methodologies, diagnosis & prognosis techniques applied in industry, industry 4.0 Instrumentation and sensors will be also an important axe to be treated.
