IPMM 2012
7th International Conference on Intelligent Processing and
Manufacturing of Materials
September, 02-03,  2012, Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil

The 2012 event

The 7th International Conference on Intelligent Processing and Manufacturing of Materials (IPMM) will take place in Foz de Iguaçu, Brazil, during September 2nd – 3th, 2012.

The conference theme for 2012 has been chosen as:

Sustainable Intelligent Approaches to Mining, Materials and Energy Resources

This year’s Call for Papers is organized around six key-topics:

  • Sustainable approaches to mining activities
  • Intelligence and Robotics in the modern mining industry
  • From Mine to Product: business intelligence for a sustainable materials’ value chain
  • Intelligence in Processing and Manufacturing of Materials
  • Sustainable Use of Renewable Energy Resources
  • Role of Intelligent Processing in the sustainability of Emerging Countries


This is the first time such an event will take place in South America. Living a real economic boom, and being involved in a unique period of shift in industrial production from all sectors, Brazil is the keystone for South America’s growth. Recently promoted as the 6th economic power in the world, playing a leading role in the new millenium’s rush to gold and rare minerals rush, in the spotlight of global attention for hosting the Soccer World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016, Brazil has become in the recent years a pivotal center of the world’s growth and innovation. As an Emerging Country, it is dealing as well, on its own territory, with the challenges of Sustainability of Production and Growth.

The aim of the 2012 IPMM Conference is to develop a culture of Sustainability through Intelligence in the “mine-to-product” value chain of materials and energy resources. We are doing it from a fundamental platform, Brazil, where Intelligence and Sustainability are a daily challenge.
