IREDES is now participating in the ISO standardization work in ISO TC82 / SC8 "Advanced Automated Mining Systems", a long-term initiative to unify norms needed for Digital Transformation in the mining industry. The work already done and ongoing in IREDES will be an essential input for the upcoming work item of information exchange.

In IREDES we would now like to prepared thoroughly for that by accelerating the review of the current profiles within IREDES 2.0. Therefore we would like to invite for a workshop dedicated for Drill Rigs specialists to review and update the standardized content of the Drill Rigs profile.

The workshop will be performed during week 47 in Scandinavia. Details can be found under the following link: link

For IREDES members the workshop is free of charge, non-members can participate against a small fee.

IREDES and interoperability also will be the main topic in digital transformation on the APCOM conference next year. Submit abstracts now at!

On the well-known APCOM for series of conferences, a lot of innovations were "born". APCOM stands for "Applications for Computers and Operations Research in the Minerals Industries". On the APCOM 2019 conference, one scientific track will be Standardization and Interoperability.

The Call for Abstracts is now open! All IREDES members are asked to submit abstracts around the use of the standard and implemented applications. Also, the IREDES office will present papers on the use and setup of the standard.
