International Committee of Mine Safety Science and Engineering (ICMSSE)

In 2011, professors Xueqiu He and. Hani Mitri initiated the first “International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering” In Beijing, China. The second and the fourth symposiums were successfully held in Beijing, China, 2013 and 2018. The third symposium was successfully held in Montreal, Canada, 2016. The fifth symposium was successfully held in Katowice, Poland, 2021. 

This symposium, which is one of the few international academic conferences that focuses on the field of mine safety science and engineering, has proven to be an important communication platform for scholars in mine safety and all participators in related fields worldwide. Specifically, it provides opportunities for the exchange of mine safety theories and engineering, which promotes the upgrading of mine safety technology. The symposium also enhances the interaction among government, industry and academia, and receives wide acclaim and great support from mine safety scholars and enterprise representatives.

Following the success of the previous three international symposiums, we are setting up the “International Symposium on Mine Safety Science and Engineering”, and establishing a permanent exchange platform for mine safety science and engineering.


The mission of the  ICMSSE is to promote mine safety science and engineering research and education for the well being of the global mining industry and its workforce, through the organization of high quality, internationally recognized events such as symposia and workshop and other international events.


The vision of the  ICMSSE is to become a major and influential body of researchers and experts in the field of mine safety that is recognized by industry and governments in mining countries around the globe.
