GMG Secure and Integrated Energy and Mining Systems Forum

GMG Secure and Integrated Energy and Mining Systems Forum

Austmine has partnered with GMG (Global Mining Guidelines Group) and the University of Adelaide to bring the mining and energy industries together to collaborate on achieving secure integration across the sector. Attendees will have the opportunity to consider the value and challenges of integration across value chains in mining and energy systems and will hear from industry leaders on their experiences, priorities and successes.

The industry’s need for integration is growing as resource variability and costs increase. Achieving integration that delivers robust, scalable and optimized value requires strong interoperability between information systems and a high level of cyber security – both of which are critical themes at this forum.

This event is an exciting chance for mining or energy companies seeking to integrate and optimize value chains and suppliers looking to offer them the best solutions to learn about the latest developments and projects and to engage in critical conversations enabling rapid digital development.

The University of Adelaide is a leader in research and development in both digital technology and the mineral and energy resources sector, and a host of many interdisciplinary research initiatives. The university’s hosts for the event are:

  • Ali Babar, Software Engineering Professor and Researcher and Theme Lead in Computer Science for the Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC)
  • Stephen Grano, Metallurgical Engineer and Researcher and Executive Director of the university’s Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources (IMER), an interdisciplinary research centre that leads cutting-edge research

GMG’s host will be Andrew Scott, GMG Vice-Chair Working Groups and Principal Innovator, Symbiotic Innovations. Andrew brings extensive professional experience in mining innovation. An exciting line up of speakers have been confirmed for the event, including;
