The Conference will mark the 59th Annual Conference of Metallurgists. The conference is the premier event in Canada for metallurgists and material engineers to network, learn and discuss new technologies. Our theme Emerging Technologies in Materials and Metallurgical Industries speaks to the professional learning opportunities and audience that will be present in Toronto.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 technical program of COM will include the following symposia:
Special: Advances in Materials Manufacturing IV- Dr. Jason Lo Memorial symposiumLight Metals for the Transportation IndustrySpecial: Rodney Jones Honorary Symposium on Chromite ProcessingManufacturing Involving Rapid SolidificationCorrosion and DegradationAccelerated Material Design (ICME) in Structural and Energy MaterialsTowards Sustainable Energy Practices in Metal ProcessingThird Novennial Symposium on New Technology ImplementationBest Safe Practices and Catastrophic Risk Identification and MitigationProcessing of Critical MaterialsNovel Technologies for Environmental Footprint Reduction in Mineral Processing Operations
Plenary I: John Dutrizac Plenary Session on Economic and Social Contributions of Metallurgical Innovations – Past, Present, and FuturePlenary II: A Practical Journey through Additive Manufacturing, a Retroactive Look at the Recent Past, Present and Future
Short courses, poster session, trade show, Pub night and more activities will follow.
