SOMP 2023

After a great meeting...impressions

In September 2023, the Harz will host Mining Professors from all over the world for the 33rd Annual General Meeting of the Society of Mining Professors. We'd like to welcome you to the Harz Mountains, a region where mining history lurks in every corner. From medieval to modern mining in the middle of four world heritage sites in the immediate vicinity and the conference venue Clausthal is right in the middle of it all. Watch the video and get the first impressions. Furthermore, you can find on the right site several  informations and files.

Enjoy the overwhelming history of this region and let us hold a great conference with important topics for our society and meet again face to face.

Mit freundlichem Glückauf

Oliver Langefeld
