Are you interested in mining?
The conference will be held in Vancouver November 6 to 9, 2011. Organized by the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering at UBC, in conjunction with Colorado State University and the University of Alberta, the conference appeals to researchers, engineers, scientists and mining representatives interested in issues related to mining.
Issues of environmental science and engineering, geochemistry and other topics related to tailings and mine waste will be covered during the sessions.
Eugene Barsky, Liaison Librarian in Science and Engineering, Dirk van Zyl, UBC Mining Engineering Professor and TMW Chair, cIRcle staff and UBC Library’s technical services staff worked together to make sure the conference would have global access in cIRcle.
Says van Zyl, “[We] are setting a new standard for open source materials of a very important conference series.”
Content from the conference, including more than 70 conference papers, will be ready for the opening session on November 6.
Stay tuned to read the proceedings of the conference – all online through cIRcle!
