"Many thanks for yet another outstanding Flotation Conference [Flotation '13]. It is now widely accepted that this series of Conferences are 'must attend' events for both flotation researchers and practitioners. The great value of attending the Conference is that it provides an excellent forum for an exchange of views among those doing more fundamental research and those from industry who are able to share their successes and challenges with the audience. This is why the Conference makes such a valuable contribution to the practice of flotation which, as you reminded us in your opening address, is one of the most important of all industrial processes! I look forward to attending Flotation'15!
Many thanks again for your outstanding ongoing contributions to the discipline of Minerals Processing in so many ways!"
Cyril O'Connor, IMPC Chairman

The MEI Flotation Conference is the Davos of the flotation industry. Whereas world leaders go to Switzerland, our customers come to Cape Town. For a small business, based in South Africa, this marketing opportunity is like platinum dust.
Nick Sessions, eDart, South Africa

"This [Flotation '17) is my first time attending International Flotation Conference. It is really a very professional and top class event for the researchers in the field of flotation. Thank you for your elaborated work for this conference. I think I will attend every Flotation Conference in the future with my students. Also I will encourage my colleagues and peers in China to attend this world class conference."
Zhiyong Gao, Associate Professor, Vice Dean, School of Mineral Processing and Bioengineering, Central South University, China

"Flotation '17 was very enjoyable in the relaxed atmosphere of the Vineyard Hotel with many opportunities for meeting friends and colleagues and also meeting other attendees for the first time. The papers on both fundamentals and applications were very valuable, and the papers on a range of existing commercial cells and on flotation devices at various stages of development were a highlight."
Bill Johnson, Mineralis, Australia

"I just wanted to convey my congratulations on a job well done [Flotation '17]! From a presenter's perspective, it was a pleasure being able to provide a talk to an interested and engaged audience. From a booth exhibitor's perspective, we had a constant influx of visitors which made the long trip (and expense) over to Cape Town that much more worthwhile. Nice to have such a conference dedicated solely to flotation with a strong technical program which included plenty of networking time with old friends, new friends, colleagues, and perspective customers."
Jaisen Kohmuench, Managing Director, Eriez Australia

"I would just like to thank you for all the arrangements with regards to the Flotation Conference [Flotation '17] this year. I donít think people realise how much effort goes into arranging such a big event. It was my first time attending and I was absolutely blown away. Every single aspect was top class!"
"It is refreshing to see such a collaborative effort in aligning the focus for academic research with applications in the industry. I believe this conference will go a long way in bridging the gap between the academics and the industry."
Brian Whitehead, Booysendal Platinum, South Africa

"I would highly recommend flotation conferences as they are great networking opportunities especially for young researchers who are involved in flotation. I first attended the flotation conference in 2011, this was an excellent networking opportunity for me as I managed to visit UCT where I am now doing my PhD. Flotation 13 was also a wonderful experience for me especially as I received the privilege of presenting at the conference and being awarded the 'Outotec Recognizes Young Talent' prize."
Mehdi Safari, Centre for Mineral Research, UCT, South Africa

"I thought that Flotation í13 was the best MEI flotation conference ever. It was a great mix of "academic" and "practical" (i.e. about practice) papers. The posters were particularly good, and contained lots of the new ideas."
JP Franzidis, UCT, South Africa

"Flotation '13 was a great conference, one of the best that I ever attended. Despite the large number of participants, the features of friendly atmosphere and interaction among participants were preserved. There was a perfect balance between fundamentals and applications.
The keynote lectures were excellent and very good papers were presented and discussed. Helpful people in the stands of the exhibit provided useful information to the participants."
Antonio Peres, UFMG, Brazil

"Thanks for an excellent conference [Flotation '13] which I would recommend to anyone involved in mineral processing."
Holger Hambloch, Idwala Carbonates , KZn, South Africa

"This is just a short note to congratulate you and all others involved in the organisation of the excellent Flotation '11 Conference held in Cape Town in November. In my view it was the best specialist Flotation conference I have ever attended. The papers were universally of a high standard and the solid attendance and intensive participation of the large audience from the first to the very last session was testimony to this. This biennial event is now firmly established as a 'must attend' for anyone actively involved in flotation research or practice!"
Prof. Cyril O'Connor, Chair: International Mineral Processing Conference

"I would say that the programme [at Flotation '11] has upheld its well-deserved international reputation as the leading flotation conference."
Norman Lotter, Consultant Metallurgist, Xstrata Process Support, Canada

"Thank you very much for your wonderful conference [Flotation '11], it was so much fun catching up with so many colleagues that I haven't seen for years! It just gets better and better. Such beautiful weather for us too. It was great to see you all and have you take us to such a fabulous dinner!"
Gaynor Yorath, University of Cape Town, South Africa

"An excellent Flotation '11 conference. Great papers, great venue, great people, and everything ran like clockwork. Thank you! I sincerely hope I will be back for Flotation '13."
Ian Townsend, Outotec

"Many thanks for a great conference [Flotation '11], well organised with quality papers. I get the feeling the conference and venue is becoming known not only for good papers but also (and of equal importance) as a very conducive networking site."
Martyn Hay, Eurus Mineral Consultants, South Africa

"First and foremost, congratulations for a well organised conference [Flotation '11]. As a Sales man and consultant, I found a number of presentations/topics very helpful in my day to day work. I will be making a follow up on those technological advancements to try and make the Mining Industry in Zambia to benefit."
Peter Chisanga, Blue Cube Systems, South Africa

"It [Flotation '11] was my first international conference. It was excellent, bringing all the big names whom I thought existed only in print. Definitely looking forward to the next in the series."
Tsepang Khonthu, Uni. of Cape Town, South Africa

"Xstrata Process Support (XPS) have sponsored MEIís Flotation í07 in Cape Town, South Africa, and more recently, their Nickel Processing í10 held in Falmouth, Cornwall."

"The international representation by the delegates and presenting authors delivers relevant conference papers and subsequent peer-reviewed proceedings and transactions in Minerals Engineering at an excellent standard for which MEI has long been known, and more recently, awarded an A* rating and a high impact factor amongst a comparative rating between all mineral processing and related journals. This provides an ongoing archival reference journal of very high value."

"As importantly, the networking dynamic in these conferences is very engaging and offers a great opportunity for technical and business discussions between academics, operations and project managers, and technical service providers. Although these conferences are never large, it is who attends that counts. And in Nickel Processing í10, this was no exception."
Norman O. Lotter, Manager, Business Development, Xstrata Process Support, Sudbury, Ontario

"It was a great conference [Flotation 09] for a PhD student like myself: as there were no parallel sessions I could see all of the presentations; I learned lots more about the Flotation industry, and it was a great opportunity for my first academic presentation!"
Kathryn Cole, Imperial College, UK

"The MEI Flotation conferences now seem to have a firm foothold in the international calendar and the variety of papers [at Flotation 09] was just as good as in 2007."
Martyn Hay, Eurus Mineral Consultants, South Africa

"Congratulations on Flotation 2007. It was an excellent meeting."
Prof. Graeme Jameson, University of Newcastle, Australia

"This conference [Flotation 07] will go down in the history of flotation as a point of reference when flotation turned a new page and moved on to its next level of knowledge and best practice."
Dr. Norman Lotter, Xstrata Process Technology, Canada

"Flotation 07 at Cape Town was my first MEI conference. I really enjoyed it and benefited to a great extent. The most important thing I liked was that there were no parallel sessions. So one could attend all the presentations without running from room to room. I appreciate and admire the way the conference was organized."
Dr. Ramanathan Natarajan, Lakehead University, Canada

"It was in my view the best MEI Conference [Flotation 07] I've ever attended. The papers were excellent throughout."
Prof. Cyril OíConnor, University of Cape Town, South Africa

"Presenting my flotation simulation program (SUPASIM) at Flotation 03 initiated a lot of interest. Up to that point all my clients were within South Africa. As a result of my presentation, four plant analysis projects were obtained with clients outside of South Africa. This just shows the value of your conferences."
Martyn Hay, Eurus Mineral Consultants, South Africa
