Join us online in November for Flotation '21

Such has been the response to the call for abstracts that Flotation '21 has been extended to five days, from November 8-12.

Although we look forward to the day when we can return to face to face meetings, there is no doubt that online events provide an opportunity for many who would not be able to travel to international venues, for various reasons. Flotation '21, being online, has allowed many more workers to get involved, and this year we have around 105 presentations in the programme, with authors from 25 countries.

The packed programme contains two important keynotes. Dr. Kym Runge, of the JKMRC, Australia will discuss developments in flotation circuit diagnostic practice and Jim Finch, Emeritus Professor of McGill University, Canada, will present 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. Prof. Jameson is well known as the inventor of the flotation cell which bears his name, and is the only mineral processor to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (posting of 15 May 2018).

As well as presenting work at the conference Prof. Jameson will also be part of a panel of experienced practitioners who will be discussing the future of flotation machines and circuits (posting of 9th August 2021). In another panel discussion (posting of 29 August 2021), well-known researchers from around the world will share their views, and take questions from conference delegates on future research needs in flotation.

We are indebted to the support we have had from our conference sponsors, media partners and industry associates and look forward to catching up with representatives in the virtual exhibition

Delegates will also have the opportunity of entering the Glencore Technology Competition, with the prize of a US$2,000 voucher, good for more than 270,000 hotels around the world! Glencore will be featuring the Jameson Concentrator at the conference and in entering the competition, delegates will be invited to guess the throughput of the Jameson Concentrator featured.

It is going to be a very intensive week, but recordings of all presentations, and the panel discussions, will be available on demand for 6 months after the conference. Although this is an online event, there will be opportunities for networking with other delegates each day during one of the breaks. 

Flotation '21 is a conference not to be missed if you have any involvement with this most important of technologies and we invite you to register and interact with like-minded people from around the world.
