Fourth International Conference on Computer Applications in the Minerals Industries (CAMI)
This Conference on Computer Applications in the Minerals Industries is the fourth of a series of conferences on the subject matter. The first CAMI was held in 1988 at Universite Laval.
The basic aim of the conference is to contribute to the development of high-tech methods and technologies for the various segments of the mining and processing industries. A wide range of high quality papers from North and South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia were presented. Major topics covered were:
Advances in mine design, mine optimization and reclamation planning technologies; Mine Equipment: design, selection, and real-time health and performance monitoring; Mine and Machine Automation; GIS, GPS, Telecommunications, Artificial Intelligence, and Internet Application; Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Applications: Underground and Surface Mine Stability, Groundwater, Mine Seismicity, Tailings and Waste Disposal; Drilling and Blasting; Computer Simulation; Real -Time Mine Management Systems: Mine Maintenance, Production Management Production Systems for Value Chain Integration (e.g. mine-mill and mine-to-market); and Computer Applications in Mining Education.
A total of 90 papers were presented. There were 165 delegates.
CAMI 2003 was supported by a number of organizations. To be noted are:
Department of Mining, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Universite Laval; Department of Mining and Mineral Process Engineering, University of British Columbia; Department of Mining, Metals and Materials, McGill University; Department of Energy and Geo-Environmental Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University; Laurentian University; Department of Mining and Geological Engineering, The University of Arizona; Mining Engineering-Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia; Department of Earth Resources and Mining Engineering, Kyushu University, Japan; Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Alberta; Department of Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal;Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Tennessee Technological University; University of Alaska, Fairbanks; Lulea University of Technology, Sweden; Henry Krumb School of Mines, Columbia University; Department of Earth Sciences, Simon Fraser University; International Journal of Surface Mining,Reclamation and Environment; Institute of Mining Engineering, Wroclaw University of Technology; Atilim University, Ankara, Turkey; Saint Petersburg State Mining Institute, Russia.
The proceedings of the conference are on a CD. This CD contains a listing of papers. Papers on this CD are available in PDF format and are saved under the authors' last names. Copies can be ordered through Ms. Margaret-Anne Stroh; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
