MEI Online: MEI Conferences: Flotation '13: Introduction
The 6th International Flotation Conference (Flotation '13) was organised by MEI in consultation with Prof. Dee Bradshaw and Prof. Jean-Paul ('J-P') Franzidis. It was sponsored by FLSmidth, Magotteaux, Aminpro Chile, SNF Flomin, Axis House, Cheminova, Outotec, Senmin, Keramos, Cytec, Clariant, Tenova Delkor, Huntsman and Metso. Media sponsors are International Mining, AT International, Procemin 2013 and Mining Prospectus.
Flotation '13 featured 2 discrete symposia:
November 18-19: Flotation Fundamentals: Physics and Chemistry
Although now over a hundred years old, the fundamental aspects of flotation are still being intensively researched, and new machines developed. This two day symposium focused on:
November 20-21: Flotation Applications and Plant Practice
This two day symposium focused on the application of flotation, and included sessions on:
Elsevier Author Workshop
Preparing a good journal article is very much an art, and on 17 November from 14.00 to 16.30, the publishing company Elsevier ran an author workshop as part of Flotation �13 at the conference venue.
"This is just a short note to congratulate you and all others involved in the organisation of the excellent Flotation '11 Conference held in Cape Town in November. In my view it was the best specialist Flotation conference I have ever attended. The papers were universally of a high standard and the solid attendance and intensive participation of the large audience from the first to the very last session was testimony to this. This biennial event is now firmly established as a 'must attend' for anyone actively involved in flotation research or practice!"
"Congratulations on Flotation 07. It was an excellent meeting."
"Many thanks for a great conference [Flotation '11], well organised with quality papers. I get the feeling the conference and venue is becoming known not only for good papers but also (and of equal importance) as a very conducive networking site."
"This conference [Flotation 07] will go down in the history of flotation as a point of reference when flotation turned a new page and moved on to its next level of knowledge and best practice."
The conference was organised by Minerals Engineering International (MEI) in consultation with Prof. Dee Bradshaw and Prof. Jean-Paul ('J-P') Franzidis.
