Networking at PIM '10

PIM '10 closed today at lunchtime. Unfortunately we had two 'no-shows' today, both authors from Iran. One had the courtesy to email us to advise of a flight cancellation, but we have heard nothing from the other. At the last minute, one of our presenters from Istanbul Technical University withdrew his paper, much too late for a replacement from one of our poster authors.

Nevertheless this has been an interesting conference, our first in Turkey and a very different atmosphere from most MEI Conferences. The event seems to have been used primarily as a meeting place and there has been a great deal of group discussions in the extended coffee breaks and the long 4-course lunch breaks.

Amanda closed the conference and announced that the next meeting, Processing of Industrial Minerals & Coal, will be held at the same venue in June 2012.
