The purpose of the Underground Ventilation Committee is to promote engineering interest and technological progress in the ventilation of mines, tunnels, and other subsurface openings. The UVC accomplishes its purpose by conducting technical sessions at SME-AIME meetings, sponsoring the U.S. Mine Ventilation Symposium with host universities and other organizations, and soliciting papers for publication in Mining Engineering and SME Transactions and proceedings. The UVC offers an affiliation home for SME members engaged in the practice of underground ventilation. In these ways, the UVC seeks to encourage research, education, publications, and technology transfer in the field of underground mine ventilation.
