Summary This book contains the Proceedings of EUROCK 2013 - The 2013 ISRM International Symposium, which was held on 23-26 September 2013 in Wroclaw, Poland. The Symposium was organized by the ISRM National Group POLAND and the Institute of Geotechnics and Hydrotechnics of the Wroclaw Institute of Technology. The focus of the Symposium was on recent developments in the field of rock mechanics with an emphasis on the application of rock mechanics to the extraction of natural resources, securing energy supplies and protecting of the environment surrounding rock that is subjected to engineering activi
