Young Professionals Conference 2021 - Sponsorship-03022021.pdf
Innovation and research into mining technology is necessary to position Africa as a world leader in minerals production and benefi ciation. The Young Professionals Council is pleased to host a unique, two-day conference that will showcase a broad range of emerging research and innovation from young professionals in the metals and minerals industry. Presentations will focus on new technology, tools and techniques relevant to exploiting Africa’s mineral resources safely, competitively and sustainably.
23-24TH SEPTEMBER 2021
Bridging the gap between research (academia) and industry while transitioning into 4IR.
Nala Consultancy & Projects is the official host of the 3rd Global Engineering Symposium(GES) in South Africa in collaboration with the SAIMM-YPC. The GES hosts a highly engaged international audience of technical, operational and policy making engineers in both academia and industry discussing current trends within these fields.
The rest of the world has slowly transitioned into the 4IR and countries such as Japan, South Korea and Germany have proven to be successful in the transition. South Africa is currently exposed to the same trend within the African continent. Therefore, such discussions will assist in unraveling paths to follow in order to achieve a sustainable transition into Industry 4.0. Having students as the cornerstone for the future of both academia and industry, we need to find ways to equip them for the transition and help them increase their competitive advantage in their respective fields.
The event aims,
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Students (Both undergrad and post grad), Young Professionals, Academia, in all fields of Engineering, Information Technology, Mining & Metallurgy, and Management.
At this point in time, the event is planned as a hybrid conference with international participation, which will allow for contact and online attendance and presentation. We are still in Stage 1 Lock down in South Africa as a result of COVID-19. We will monitor the situation, and if it appears that the effects of the pandemic are still such as to pose a threat to the health and safety of delegates, or restrictions are lifted to allow for more contact participation and international travel, the event delivery method will be adjusted accordingly.
Please submit your abstracts and papers as these will be peer reviewed and published for all contact and hybrid/online conferences.
This conference should be of value to all professionals across the entire minerals industry value chain, including:
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Companies wishing to sponsor or exhibit should contact the Conference Co-ordinator.
