The first keynote lecture, "What's cooking in mining?" will be given by Prof Sam Kingman of the University of Nottingham, UK.

Sam is a Pro-Vice-Chancellor at the University of Nottingham. He was awarded a personal chair at Nottingham in 2006, which at the time made him the youngest full Engineering Professor in the UK. He was previously the Director of the National Centre for Industrial Microwave Processing (NCIMP) which was one of the largest activities of its type in the world. In the past 12 years, Sam has published over 175 refereed journal papers and he is an inventor on over 150 patents within 29 patent families in the field of industrial microwave processing.

In 2008, the work of Sam and his group was recognised through the award of The Engineer Technology and Innovation Prize for Environmental Technology and the Environmental Prize of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and in 2011 Professor Kingman was awarded the Bielby Medal by the Royal Society of Chemistry, Society of Chemical Industries and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining for his work to reduce energy consumption in chemical processing. Other prestigious awards include the Institution of Chemical Engineers Energy Prize in 2012 for work in microwave processing of industrial minerals and the UK Medal for Excellence in Engineering (2001). Microwave processing research at Nottingham has also been recognised by the award of the 2009 Environmental prize by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. In 2018 Sam led the team that was awarded the Colin Campbell Mitchell Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering, which was awarded for having made the greatest contribution to the advancement of any field of engineering within the period of the four years prior to the making of the award. Sam has presented numerous international invited and keynote lectures including a Friday Evening Discourse at The Royal Institution of Great Britain a lecture series first delivered in 1826 by Michael Faraday and whose other presenters have included Dorothy Hodgkin, Alexander Fleming, JJ Thomson, Gugliemo Marconi and Ernest Rutherford.
