He is the head of the international cooperation department of Vietnam Association of Mining Science and Technology.

Prof. Vo Chi My is Editor in chief of the Geodesy and Cartography Journal of the Vietnam Association of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing (VGCR) and a member of the editorial board of several journals in the field of geomatics. He is a team leader and member of several national and international projects in applied geospatial engineering. He has been awarded by the Vietnam Fun for Scientific and Technological Creation (VIFOTEC).


Prof. Tomasz Lipecki

Prof. Tomasz Lipecki graduated from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow (Poland) with master’s and Ph.D degrees. At the moment, he is the member of The Department of Mining Area Protection, Geoinformatics and Mining Surveying, Professor of university AGH.

His current research includes the analysis of the geometry of special objects (also underground), as well as the assessment of their deformation under the influence of various natural and anthropogenic factors. He uses of modern measuring instruments to assess the technical condition of shaft devices and developed the concept of GPS RTK measurements to assess the vibrations of shaft towers and slender objects under the influence of external and, above all, workings load. He prepared of a few publications and habilitation thesis entitled "Comprehensive evaluation of the geometrical state of shaft objects and devices using laser scanning." He obtained the academic degree of habilitated doctor in the specialty: mining geodesy, mining areas protection, mining metrology.

Dr. Ropesh Goyal did his PhD jointly from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India, and Curtin University, Australia. Presently, he is involved in various R&D activities of the National Centre for Geodesy at IIT Kanpur, India. He has developed the first high-resolution gravimetric geoid model for India using different techniques and is a member of several joint working/study groups of the International Association of Geodesy. His primary area of interest is theoretical developments and practical applications in geodesy, notably physical and geometrical geodesy. For more information feel free to contact Ropesh at or
