As a result of the meeting organized by the CMM and PIMS at the Banff International Research Station on Natural Resources and Mathematical Economics in November 2005,
and of a sequence of personal and e-mail discussions with representatives of MASCOS, MATHEON and MITACS, all mentioned centers have decided to promote the organization
of a workshop on Rock Mechanics and Logistics in Mining to be held in

Santiago de Chile, from February 26 to March 2, 2007

In addition to the five research centers, the mining companies CODELCO and BHP-Billiton
support this initiative.


All the academic activities (opening, talks and roundtables) of the workshop will be located in the Hotel Torremayor.
