Online/Australia – MetPlant 2023

AusIMM’s MetPlant 2023 conference will be held online and in Perth, Australia on 29th-31st May 2023.

The theme of MetPlant 2023 will be ‘World's Best Practice in Metallurgical Plant Design and Operating Strategies’, with a major underpinning theme of energy/carbon footprint reduction, process safety and ESG in autonomous operations, modularization of plants, social performance and designing for renewable energy. CEEC Director and past Chair Joe Pease is one of the keynote speakers at the event.

The event will be hosted face to face and online through a virtual platform. Delegates will access outstanding keynote and technical presentations, interactive panel sessions, a full live trade exhibition, virtual booths, interactive discussion groups and networking functions, from anywhere in the world.

Chartered Professionals can earn up to 24 PD hours by attending, but significantly more hours can be obtained by presenting at MetPlant 2023.

Zachary Hearne, Processing Superintendent at IGO Ltd, reflected on his experience of presenting at MetPlant in 2019.

“Writing a paper for and presenting to a diverse group of people allows you to develop valuable skills that all professionals should learn and creates opportunities and strengthens inter-departmental teams,” he said. “I would highly recommend taking the opportunity to present at the 2023 MetPlant Conference - to meet with industry peers, discuss learnings and gain additional perspectives for future application.”

The deadline for abstracts closes on 24th June 2022. Collaborative papers between clients, engineers and designers are strongly encouraged. It is a really simple process to submit an abstract and, if accepted, the organising committee will work with you to put together your final paper which will be peer-reviewed and give you significant experience in public speaking, raising your professional profile and add to your technical publications.
