MINEFILL 2020 – 2021

Due to the still dynamic and unpredictable situation regarding restrictions on international travel, freedom of crossing borders and the possibility of organizing international conferences in the conditions of the still-present threat of COVID-19 coronavirus, the Organizing Committee of the International Symposium Minefill 2020 decided to transfer the Symposium to next year. The symposium under the name Minefill 2020 – 2021 will be held on May 24-28, 2021. The place and framework program of the Symposium remains unchanged. Papers submitted so far and accepted for oral presentation and printing are transferred automatically. Participants will be informed about changes in the detailed schedule of the Symposium at a later date. Participants who have already registered in the Symposium will be informed individually by e-mail.


We are pleased to announce that after the arrangements with the Advisory Board, a new date for the Symposium was set on May 25-28, 2021. The planned Workshop will take place on May 24, 2021. It is possible to submit new articles and register new participants. Details of the participants registered so far will be sent to the individual e-mail addresses of the participants.
