Abstract

The Core Task of the Management and Technology Area included a subtask devoted to industry studies entitled "Issues for the Eighties"; the first to be studied was coal. Although this study is to terminate at the end of 1981 it is hoped that IIASA will continue to lend its name and support for holding a seminar each year on the problems of world coal prospects.

At previous IIASA seminars on coal mining problems it was unanimously requested that such meetings should be continued. In this respect the Institute for Organizational and Management Problems of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Computer Center for the Polish Mining Industry agreed to sponsor the next seminar which will be held in Kokotek (near Katowice) Poland, in October 1981.

This seminar will be devoted to current developments in the systems assessment of the technological changes in coal mining and data-processing at a colliery, Special attention would be paid to the influences of advanced new mining and information technology on the organizational, managerial, and social subsystems. This paper outlines some issues which, it is hoped, will provoke discussion,

Any comments by the participants or those who are interested in the subjects of the seminar would be of great interest to the organizers in helping them prepare a comprehensive program which will be of interest to those attending.
