The Minnesota Section Conference Planning Committee has issued a call for presentations and is accepting abstracts for its 88th Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Section of SME and the 75th Annual Meeting of the University of Minnesota Mining Symposium.
Topics of interest for the program include, but are not limited to, advances in environmental technology, industrial minerals, policy, mining and exploration, and processing. Additional topics will be considered.
Selection will be based on the quality of the abstract and the relevance of the topic. The submission deadline is Nov. 30, 2014. Authors will be notified in January of acceptance or otherwise. Accepted presentations will speak 25 minutes and have a Q&A time of 5 minutes.
Along with a full technical program, the meeting will include short courses, a trade show and several social events.
On Oct. 29, the Hibbing Daily Tribune published a feature article about the 2014 conference and the Minnesota section of SME. The 2014 Minnesota Section Conference attracted more than 600 registrants and more than 200 exhibitors.
