Abstract Procedings of a symposium organised by the Commission of the European Communities in Luxembourg on 4-6 Nov. 1980. The 1st technical meeting was devoted to the release and control of methane and to the prediction of methane release. The 6 papers in the 2nd technical meeting deal with the prediction of air-temperature rise in faces and headings, and methods of air conditioning. The 3rd technical meeting brings together papers on mine ventilation: planning and monitoring, in particular by use of electronic process computers; and the installation and control of ventilation systems, in particular secondary ventilation.
