International October Conference on Mining and Metallurgy is organized annually as a joint effort of Technical faculty in Bor of the University of Belgrade and Mining and metallurgy institute in Bor. The aim of the Conference is to provide a forum to present and discuss the new ideas, new achievements, technological development and research results in the field of mining, metallurgy and related fields. We at the Technical faculty in Bor are especially proud to organize this year’s Conference  because it coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Faculty.

In spite of all of our hopes and wishes, the global pandemic situation, travel restrictions and overall health risk do not allow us to be optimistic about the possibility to meet with you in person and  to greet you here and share the festive spirit with you.

Due to the pandemic situation and all the uncertainties linked to it, the Organizing committee of the IOC 2021 made a decision to organize this year’s conference as an online event in hope that we will have the opportunity to meet with you in the near future, maybe even next year.
