Flotation '21: first announcement

Last year's Flotation '19 was MEI's most successful conference ever, highlighting the importance of flotation and how the flotation series is now firmly established, bringing together all the leading scientists and practitioners from around the world. Papers from the conference are currently being peer-reviewed for the special issue of Minerals Engineering.
We are pleased to announce that the next conference in the series, Flotation '21, will be held at the Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town from November 8-11, 2021.
Regular sponsors recognise the marketing value of early sponsorship, and we welcome our first sponsors Promet 101, Maelgwyn Mineral Services, Magotteaux, Gold Ore and CiDRA and our trusted media partner International Mining.
The first keynote lecture will be given by Prof. James Finch, Emeritus Professor of McGill University, Canada. Entitled "A Mineral Processor’s Journey" it will be an appreciation of the life and work of Prof. Graeme Jameson, of the University of Newcastle, Australia, who has attended all but one of the MEI flotation series.
Few can claim a process or equipment that carries their name. The Jameson Cell is a rare example: an industrial endorsement of Professor Jameson’s already secured academic reputation that sets him apart. Taking the Cell as the unifying theme, this talk will assess Graeme’s contributions to the technology of flotation, from fundamental models and innovative experiments to his continuing quest for the universal flotation machine.

It's not too early to think about presenting a paper at the conference, the deadline for abstract submission being the end of June 2021.
We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town next year. Updates on the conference are at #Flotation21.
