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.

We are happy to announce that Strayos joined Iredes as associated member in May 2017.

Strayos is a computer vision 3D aerial intelligence platform for Mining and Quarry blasting operations to reduce cost, improve productivity and safety by providing highly accurate survey data analytics. Strayos proprietary software increases mining company ROIs by automating tasks, directly reducing overhead and enabling enterprises to make actionable decisions from drone data. Strayos eliminates the need for expensive laser scanners for Mine and Quarry blasting operations and utilizes drone data through it’s proprietary 3D photogrammetry software. Multi view stereo engine turns the massive imagery data into orthorectified 3D graphical models. Using machine learning algorithms on each graph points it predicts the hole depth, diameter, and 360 degree view distance from bench cliff to the face of excavation. With this approach it is possible to provide near real time 3D analytics, predicting efficient and accurate blast patterns while significantly decreasing delivery time and improving safety measures.

As it was announced earlier, we have Iredes Messages Validator on our website.


Validator works in such a way, that you need to upload example XML file. It automatically looks up for appropriate xsd file (thanks to schemaLocation attribute) and outputs result of validation.
