Final Call for Abstracts for Flotation '13

Winter has arrived in Cape Town with a vengeance!  This was the scene at Camp's Bay on Monday:

Flotation '13 will be held in November, perhaps the best time to be in Cape Town, at the beginning of summer, and when the spring flowers are still in bloom.

There will be much going on around the conference (see posting of 27th May), an event not to be missed if you are involved with flotation. Exhibition space is now fully booked (see the list of exhibitors), but there are still excellent sponsorship opportunities available.

Flotation '11 special issue

If you would like to present a paper at the conference, abstracts should be submitted by the end of this month. Draft papers will be published in the Proceedings on flash-drive, and after the conference authors will be invited to submit final papers for peer-review and possible publication in the special flotation issue of Minerals Engineering.

The 4-day conference consists of two symposia. The first is Fundamentals: Physics and Chemistry and the keynote speaker is Prof. Kari Heiskanen of Aalto University, Finland, editor of International Journal of Mineral Processing (see posting of 27th March for more details).

The 2nd symposium, Applications and Plant Practice, has as its keynote speaker Dr. Dariusz Lelinski, of FLSmidth, USA, who will discuss True Value Added in Flotation.

In contrast to chilly Cape Town, Falmouth is enjoying the summer, and we are now less than 2-weeks away from Computational Modelling '13 and Physical Separation '13. It is not too late to register.
