MEI Online Update #430

Hello Everyone,
First off, I need to remind you that the deadline for abstracts for Computational Modelling '19 and Physical Separation '19 is the end of this week. If you would like to submit an abstract but are running late, please contact Barry to let him know. These events will run back-to-back in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK this June.
There is also a Final Call for Papers for Flotation '19. Taking place, as usual, in November in Cape Town at the fantastic Vineyard Hotel, this is the 9th event in a series which just keeps on going from strength to strength. If flotation is your thing then do your best to join us! And if you are interested in exhibiting, please contact Jon asap as there are now only 5 booths left. The exhibition area is integral to this event - the welcome reception, and all lunches and coffee breaks are held there. See the diagram to the right.

"It is now widely accepted that this series of Conferences are 'must attend' events for both flotation researchers and practitioners. The great value of attending the Conference is that it provides an excellent forum for an exchange of views among those doing more fundamental research and those from industry who are able to share their successes and challenges with the audience."
Cyril O'Connor, IMPC Chairman
And I mustn't forget that there is a First Announcement of Hi-Tech Metals '20 and Process Mineralogy '20, which will take place back-to-back in October 2020 in Cape Town, South Africa.
We have had a couple more sponsors join us in the last few weeks. I announced in the last newsletter that regular MEI Conferences sponsor, Zeiss, are sponsoring Flotation '19, and now they have also signed up as sponsors of Comminution '20, Process Mineralogy '20, and Hi-Tech Metals '20.
I'm also very pleased to be able to announce that Hudbay Minerals are sponsoring Physical Separation '19, Flotation '19, and Comminution '20. This is the first time that Hudbay Minerals have sponsored an MEI conference so a big thank you from us all!
Best regards,
Amanda
