Join us in beautiful Cornwall in June, for Computational Modelling '17 and Physical Separation '17, which will run back to back over 4 days.
The provisional programmes for Computational Modelling and Physical Separation, which are still evolving, are now available for viewing on the conference websites.
Computational Modelling '17 covers the use of fundamental physical equations to predict the behaviour of complex systems. The keynote speaker is Prof. Stephen Neethling, of Imperial College, UK, and papers on comminution, flotation, hydromet and pyromet will feature in the technical sessions.
Physical Separation '17 will highlight developments in ore sorting, magnetic separation, gravity concentration, and classification. The keynote lectures will be given by two well known practitioners in this field, Sandy Lewis-Gray of Gekko Systems, Australia, and Tim Napier-Munn, former JKMRC Director (posting of 16th January). The conference will also give delegates the opportunity to visit the ruins of the 19th century mines in the Camborne-Redruth area, the 'birthplace of modern mining'.
It is not too late to contribute to the technical programmes. If you would like to present a paper, short abstracts should be submitted as soon as possible, and, if accepted, draft papers will be required for the unrefereed Proceedings, which will be available to delegates on USB at the conference. Final papers should be submitted no later than one month after the end of the conference. These will be refereed, and, if accepted, published in a special issues of Minerals Engineering journal.
