The digital conference is the premier event in Canada for metallurgists and material engineers to network, learn and discuss new technologies based on our theme Emerging Technologies in Materials and Metallurgical Industries.
Technologies that were non-existent or immature a decade ago, are being developed/commercialized currently, and are expected to be fully adopted in a decade. Examples as following: Sustainable Energy Practices in Metal Processing, Development and Implementation of Novel Extraction Technologies, Best Safe Practices and Catastrophic Risk identification and Mitigation, Processing of Strategic Materials, Additive manufacturing, Digitization (Industry 4.0) and more!
The virtual conference is happy to host alongside the 4th International Uranium Conference.

Two days of live Plenary and Keynote talks

The 150+ technical presentations will include the following content:

Uranium production (uranium mining technologies and methodologies, heap and stope leaching) all the way to Business and economic aspects of uranium extraction and utilization
Special: Advances in Materials Manufacturing IV- Dr. Jason Lo Memorial symposiumLight Metals for the Transportation Industry
Special: Rodney Jones Honorary Symposium on Chromite Processing
Manufacturing Involving Rapid Solidification
