This Collaborative Paper contains the technical papers presented at IIASA's Task Force Meeting held at the Institute in November 1980 entitled "Planning for Planning -- Coal: Issues for the Eighties",

This meeting was part of a research program at IIASA under the generic title "Issues for the Eighties" in which systems analysts and managers from a given industry met to exchange ideas and information, as well as to explore and develop a strategy of using systems analysis, rather than using it merely as a tool to be brought in for certain well-defined problems.

The subject of the task force meeting was to explore the use of systems analysis in the planning of new capacity for deep mining in hard coal. In fact, the planning of any major project or enterprise, but especially a colliery is, in itself, an extremely complex process which, by definition, requires planning, i.e., planning must itself be planned. Hence the title of this seminar.

The discussion was attended by 17 representatives from 7 countries, and 13 papers were presented or tabled at the meeting.
