Goldschmidt 2017
2017-08-13 to 2017-08-18
Paris, France

The Goldschmidt Conferences® were started in 1988 by the international Geochemical Society (GS) to provide a forum for its members to discuss their latest research. The conference is named in honour of Victor M. Goldschmidt (1888–1947), whose classification of the behaviour of the elements in the Earth and meteorites laid the basis of modern geochemistry. Each year, the conference brings together thousands of scientists from throughout the world to talk about subjects including the origin of the Earth and planets, the chemical processes that have shaped Earth's evolution over time, the interconnections between life and the physical world, the search for new resources, and the environmental challenges facing today's world. link

XXIX International Mineral Processing Congress
2017-09-15 to 2017-09-21
Moscow, Russia

The International Mineral Processing Congress has been in existence now for more than sixty years. The very first congress was held in September 1952 in London, and with 39 technical papers and 332 delegates, it was indeed an impressive beginning of a series of ever growing congresses. The IMPC has been a major driving force for the promotion of scientific and technical knowledge in mineral processing and extractive metallurgy worldwide. It is the most prestigious event in the field of mineral processing in the world today. The congress has been truly international with delegates from all parts of the world deliberating on issues facing the mining and minerals processing industry globally.For more information please refer to the website. link
