MINEX Russia Forum is one of the best platforms for disseminating practical knowledge and discussing changes and opportunities for partnerships, trade and investments in the Russian Mining and Exploration Industry.

Presentation abstracts and speaker applications must be submitted by 1 September 2019. The program of the forum and the list of confirmed speakers will be announced on the website shortly after.

Presentation platforms

Corporate masterclasses and workshops are traditionally held the day before the forum. Conducted by Russian and international companies they are designed to enhance professional understanding of the novel mining technologies and methods. The themes and content of each master class is determined by the organising company (sponsor). As a rule, master classes attract senior directors and managers from mining companies operating in Russia and the neighbouring countries. Participation numbers are content driven and vary from 30 to up 100 participants.

Timing and Logistics

• The program of the day usually includes 3-5 master classes (60-90 minutes each).
• To stimulate the discussions prior to each master class the audience takes part in topical survey via MINEX Forum mobile application. The results are projected on the main screen in real time.

1st Conference of Mining Digital Transformation in Russia

Participants

The conference will bring together specialists from Russian and international companies that develop and implement 4.0. Industry Technologies at the mining and metallurgical enterprises in Russia.

Themes

Production management technologies are constantly evolving. The huge amount of data that companies have to deal with, the rapid change of business models, the emergence of innovative management tools is the reality of the current business environment. The sooner companies adapt to a new reality, the higher their chances in competition. Digital transformation is not a newfangled invention, it is a need for survival in a world where information plays a key role. Experts believe that digital transformation can take the company to a new level of development and business efficiency.

In recent years, leading industrial companies have noticeably increased their level of sampling production, having installed a sufficient number of sensors and sensors to visualize the technological process in real time. For such companies, the very availability of data is not a problem, the main difficulty is to derive benefits from a huge amount of disconnected information, where traditional methods (relational databases) and analysis are not applicable. According to experts, more than 70% of generated data is not used by the enterprise. Nevertheless, the management of companies understands that these data may be further useful for conducting advanced analytics. For example, for the implementation of timely replacement of equipment at the time when it is appropriate instead of the standard approach – scheduled preventive repairs – an accurate prediction of the failure of the equipment or its components is necessary.

What are the key trends in mining digitisation in Russia and Globally? Can subsoil use in Russia take full advantage of the Industry 4.0 technologist and spearhead the development of digital economy? What set of measures is necessary for this to take? Why is digitisation of subsoil use important today in strategic terms for Russia? Will this strengthen Russia’s position in the CIS and in African countries?
