The School of Underground Mining has for years been the largest meeting of mining engineers and the scientific community in Poland as it gathers 400-500 participants every year. The proceedings are conducted in 15-20 sessions, which distinctive theme issues usually focus on
how to improve the efficiency of mining in all of its areas. One of the significant and important sessions in the year 2016 will be a plenary session dedicated to the transformation of the mining industry and its impact on change of the regions in which mining is carried out. Topics of
selected presentations in this session are presented in the attachment. I simultaneously invite to submit papers regarding German experiences in this field. We are waiting also for submission of the articles or presentations to the other several thematic sessions listed in attachment.
