Note: As discussed at the previous ISM Presidium Meeting in Aachen the meeting in Sydney will introduce a workshop / symposium related to the activities of ISM. This year we ask all members to prepare and present a paper that deals with educational issues of mine surveying in your home country and relevance of the offered educational programs to the mining industry. We would like to develop a template for standard educational curricula at vocational and university levels. This may lead to development of accreditation process at international level. The details about the planned workshop / symposium will be provided soon.
