Flotation ’13 only 6 months away!


MEI’s premier event, Flotation ’13, will be held at its usual venue, the Vineyard Hotel, Cape Town in November. Interest in this has been unprecedented, with 15 companies providing corporate support, and all exhibit booths already sold.

MEI Conferences Flotation '13
The 4-day conference features two discrete symposia, Fundamentals (Physics and Chemistry) and Applications/Plant Practice. Prof. Kari Heiskanen, of Aalto University, Finland, will present a keynote lecture at the former symposium, and Dr. Dariusz Lelinski, of FLSmidth, USA, at the latter.

There is good reason to present a paper at the conference, as all papers will be peer-reviewed after the event for possible inclusion in the special Froth Flotation issue of Minerals Engineering, now regarded as the state-of-the-art volume for flotation innovation and research. Short abstracts should be submitted no later than the end of next month, and if accepted draft papers will be needed prior to the conference, for inclusion in the unrefereed Proceedings.

Apart from the technical presentations, there will be much to enjoy in Cape Town, including an informal conference dinner at the Waterfront, a guided hike up Table Mountain, and a number of pre-conference workshops and courses- more details will be in a blog posting later this month.
