Each day will start with a keynote address delivered to a plenary session by an invited keynote speaker. After the daily keynote address, 3 to 5 parallel sessions will start and each session will be introduced with a synthesis of the previous day’s presentations. When slots run out because there are not enough speakers or a speaker does not show up, a “meet and greet” session will be held.

Sunday afternoon the opening ceremony and the icebreaker party will start off the 14th IMWA Congress.

On Tuesday, there will be a conference dinner including music and speeches by representatives of the organizing organisations will be given.

Wednesday the mid conference excursions will take place, giving you the opportunity to experience the rich Welsh mining industry.

Thursday, during the closing ceremony, the awards will be presented. Also, the next IMWA presentation will be given.
