IMPC- day 1

A very early start this morning for the IMPC Opening Ceremony. Within the formal speeches, Robin Batterham, the IMPC 2010 President, highlighted that one of the hallmarks of the IMPCs is the opportunity given to young researchers to meet with famous and eminent figures from the world of mineral processing.  Over 1100 delegates have registered for the event, and over 400 papers are contained in the Proceedings CD.

During the relatively short coffee and lunch breaks, delegates had the opportunity of visiting the 58 exhibition booths. The MEI booth had many interesting visitors, including Don McKee, who I have not seen for many years.  Don was for many years Director of Australia's JKMRC, and he is the longest serving member of the Minerals Engineering editorial board. In the photo on the left I am photographed with Don (right) and Cyril O'Connor, now Chairman of the IMPC.  At the inception of the journal in 1988, Don was regional editor, Australia, and Cyril regional editor Africa.
