The 46th Underwater Mining Conference is presented by the International Marine Minerals Society in partnership with the University of Hawaii, and the DeepSea Mining Alliance (DSMA). We will continue the well-tested format of the conference, which brings together world leaders from government, academia and industry to exchange information and ideas on underwater mining.

Our technical focuses in 2017 are the economical, technological and environmental aspects of cooperative solutions for future deep-sea mining. It will be an exciting conference for the next commercial, technological and environmental developments regarding deep-sea minerals, deep-sea mining and metallurgical processing of marine mineral resources.

The conference will start on Sunday, September 24, with an evening registration and reception, followed by two days of technical sessions, including poster sessions and a banquet. Technical field tours will commence thereafter.

Mark your calendars to join us in Germany. Berlin, the German capital, has about 3.5 million inhabitants and it covers 892 square kilometres, nearly nine times the size of Paris. There are more than 180 kilometres of navigable waterways within Berlin. Berlin has the world’s largest universal museum stands in the heart of the city. The renovation and reorganization of the Museum Island with its five monumental buildings belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1999 and it is post-war Germany’s most ambitious cultural project.
