The 50th International October Conference on Mining and Metallurgy (50 IOC) is organized annually, and aimed at providing a forum for presentation and discussion of scientific research, technological development and practice on the subjects of geology, mining, metallurgy, material science, technology, environmental protection, energy efficiency, recycling, industrial informatics, industrial management and related engineering topics.

The Conference has been organized jointly by the Mining and Metallurgy Institute Bor and Technical Faculty in Bor, University of Belgrade. Firstly, it was a national Conference, then a Conference with international participation and since 2002 – International Conference.

The 50th IOC will be held on 30 September – 3 October 2018 at the Hotel “Jezero”, Bor Lake, Serbia, about 250 km south-east of Belgrade.

  • Geology,
  • Underground mining,
  • Surface mining,
  • Mineral processing,
  • Extractive metallurgy,
  • Metal processing,
  • Materials science,
  • Inorganic technology,
  • Environmental engineering,
  • Industrial engineering,
  • Recycling technologies,
  • Energetics,
  • Manufacturing technologies,
  • Quality management,
  • Software engineering applications,
  • Mechatronics, machining, design and construction, and
  • other related fields.

The Conference will be organized in sections, including the plenary lectures, section lectures, oral and poster presentations.

The Conference Proceedings will be published including only the papers accepted by the Scientific Committee.
The authors can prepare their papers in extended form and submit them as the full-length research papers in the international journals: Journal of Mining and Metallurgy, Section A: Mining and Section B: Metallurgy, and journal Mining and Metallurgy Engineering Bor, as well as in the national journals such as Bakar/Copper and Recycling and Sustainable Development, after reviewing and appropriate revisions.

The Conference language will be English.

An exhibition will be held during the Conference, which will be a good opportunity for the companies, dealing with topics of the Conference, to introduce their products and services to a wider public. It will be open throughout the Conference.
