The conference is organised by a voluntary committee representing the local branches of professional associations (AIG, ASEG, AusIMM and GSA). Representatives from the South Australian Department of Energy and Mining (DEM) and the University of Adelaide have also joined the committee.

The Conference registration fees are kept low to encourage a broad attendance and the modest surplus are intended to be invested in student-related activities in the local professional associations.
