The 4th International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering

The 4th International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering (ISMSSE2018) was held in Xijiao Hotel on October 22nd to 24th, 2018. The general chair of this symposium is Prof. Aixiang WU, from University of Science and Technology, Beijing. The motif of the symposium was "Deep Mine Safety Science and Engineering", focusing on mine safety science theory, mine environment safety, mine dynamic hazards, coal mine gas, mine emergency rescue, mine occupational health, mine safety management and safety behavior, mine safety information technology and mine equipment safety. The Symposium showed cutting-edge results and successful experiences from safety science theory research to practical application.

The symposium was hosted by University of Science and Technology Beijing, and co-hosted by McGill University, China University of Mining and Technology (Beijing), Henan Polytechnic University, Xi’an University of Science and Technology, Heilongjiang University of Science and Technology, North China University of Technology, Northeastern University, Chongqing University, China University of Mining and Technology, Laurentian University, University of Wollongong, Liaoning Technical University, and Jiangxi University of Science and Technology, supported by Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, National Natural Science Foundation of China, China Occupation Safety and Health Association, China Academy of Safety Science and Technology, China Coal Information Institute, Zhong-an Academy of Safety Engineering, and International Journal of Mining Science and Technology, sponsored by Xi’an University of Science and Technology, Heilongjiang University of Science and Technology, North China University of Technology. More than 300 experts and scholars from 10 countries, including China, Canada, Poland, U.S., Czech Republic, Portugal, Australia, Japan, India, Nigeria, attended the meeting.

Prof. Xueqiu HE from USTB, who is the chair of the Technical Program Committee of Mine Safety Science and Engineering, was the host of the symposium.

At the opening ceremony, prof. Renshu YANG, the president of University of Science and Technology Beijing, gave a welcome speech and introduced the major safety issues facing the global mining industry. He proposed that informatization, intelligence and precision of mine safety would be the inevitable trend in the mining industry, and affirmed the positive contribution of this symposium to the progress of mine safety technology and industry. The Beijing University of Science and Technology will continue to promote the development of mining and safety disciplines, keep up with the frontiers of world mining safety research, adhere to the aim of Chinese characteristic and the world first class, and cultivate elite talents in the field of international mining engineering and safety engineering. Finally, he shared his heartfelt gratitude to all the experts, leaders and friends who have given enthusiastic support to the development of safety engineering, and hoped the symposium in a complete success! 

Mr. Hongwei SUN from National Natural Science Foundation of China, Prof. Hani MITRI, international chair of the Technical Program Committee of Mine Safety Science and Engineering from McGill University, Canada, Shining ZHOU and Tiegang ZHANG, honorary chairs of the symposium and also the academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, were invited to give a speech.
