Mining Goes Digital Conference

The digital transformation of the mining industry is inevitable as it is a part of more comprehensive societal and business evolution. Yet, the current crisis has the potential to accelerate digital processes that are on the way. During COVID-19 pandemic digital solutions have become even more critical, offering opportunities for organisations to adapt their business to a new reality. Several questions surround the decision with respect to the digital transformation of the mining sector, such as:

• How is the mining sector adopting the use of digital technologies?
• What are the impacts of the introduction of automation and digital processes in the
mining industry?
• How can the disruptions caused by the digitalisation be reduced in the mining sector?
• What type of policies can be considered for remediating the disruptions caused by the digitalisation of the mining industry?
• Finally, is the COVID-19 pandemic crisis an appropriate moment to accelerate the digital transformation of the mining sector?

These and other issues will be addressed at the 2nd “Mining Goes Digital Conference” conference organised in hybrid in-person and virtual format alongside MINEX Russia Forum.

The conference will also showcase examples of digitalisation of mining and metallurgical and mining enterprises using artificial intelligence technologies, machine learning, big data analysis, digital and satellite monitoring systems, IoT, blockchain, etc.

Speakers will be able to present from the stage or remotely. Delegates will be offered opportunities for connecting to speakers via online chat and online video meeting planner.
