Professor Peter Dowd, Director of the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Integrated Operations for Complex Resources, has been elected President of the International Association for the Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG) for a four-year term commencing September 2020.
Congratulations to Dr Michael Gibbard, who has received the IEEE Power Engineering Society’s Prabha S. Kundar Power System Dynamics and Control Award for 2020, for his extraordinary contributions to the theory and software tools for small-signal stability analysis and power system control.
In the first online Professorial Lecture, newly appointed Associate Professor Carl Spandler from Earth Sciences will discuss, 'Unearthing rare earths: Why mining critical metals is vital to our future, and why Australia is well placed to profit'. The event will be live streamed via Zoom on Monday, 29 June at 6 pm. More information and to register.
Companies are invited to partner in a new proposal to the Australian Government to form a Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition Cooperative Research Centre (HILT CRC) to expedite the decarbonisation of Australia’s heavy industrial processes and produce materials vital to the local and global economies at lower costs and in more sustainable ways. Prospectus now available.
A new sponsorship partnership between the Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC) and the University of Adelaide’s Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources (IMER) will enhance greater opportunities for innovation in the resources sector.
EDUCATION, TRAINING ‘CRUCIAL’

Universities and the mining industry are working closely together to ensure the workforce has the skilled workers required to analyse, experiment and improve, as well as provide pathways for graduates between study and employment.
HiTeMP-2 Forum consolidated as a globally unique event addressing carbon emissions in heavy industry
Following the success of HiTeMP-1 Forum in 2018, and despite the very significant disruptions caused by the COVID19 pandemic, HiTeMP-2 consolidated this Forum’s position as a globally unique and leading event in engaging international specialists from industry, research, government and community organisations to chart the path for the heavy industrial sector to transition to the new, low-carbon economic future.
HiTeMP-2 Forum: Be part of the conversation to transition high temperature minerals processing to zero carbon emissions
Professor Gus Nathan, Director of the Centre for Energy Technology at the University of Adelaide and Convenor of the 2020 HiTEMP-2 Forum on Zero Carbon High Temperature Minerals Processing discusses the upcoming Forum to be held at the International Wine Centre, Adelaide, March 16-18. He explains why heavy industries such as iron/steel, alumina/aluminium, cement, lime and copper are coming together to solve the issue of carbon emissions in high temperature minerals processing.
After the success of the inaugural High Temperature Minerals Processing Forum (HiTeMP) held in 2018, delegates from around the world will once again converge on Adelaide for HiTeMP-2, to be held March 16-18, 2020 at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide.
