The post-conference publication of the 11th ICAM consists of two parts, including electronic Proceedings in the charge of Springer and the special issue published inMineralogy and Petrology. The full text of the papers submitted in the conference is to be published in the Proceedings, among which 15 better-qualified papers will be selected to get the online-evaluation by relevant experts. They will recommend about 10 papers as the alternatives for special issue to the chief editor, who is in charge of the final draft.

Therefore, it’s estimated that the final draft will have come out by the end of this Month. Once the special issue is finalized, we will get the Proceedings published. 

The 10 papers elected are as follows: 
Non-isothermal kinetic analysis of thermal decomposition of the Ca-bentonite from Santai, China    Author: Wang ling
Veins, dikes and pods of the uae mantle peridotites - possible industrial raw materials  Author:  Sulaiman Alaabed

Welcome message


Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Southwest University of Science and Technology (SWUST) and mineralogy community in China, I have great pleasure in inviting you to the 11th International  Congress for Applied Mineralogy (ICAM) , in Mianyang, Sichuan, China, in July 2013. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming delegates and providing you with an intellectually stimulating and socially memorable Congress.

Since its establishment in 1981, ICAM congress has been conducted constantly for ten times in Europe, America, Oceania and Africa.

Through an exciting range of pre and post Congress field trips, you can experience Chinas innovations and natural wonders.

Under the theme “Applied Mineralogy and Future” the 11th ICAM congress is aimed at further strengthening worldwide academic exchange and cooperation in Applied Mineralogy, and offer a such platform for scientists and engineers to discuss recent research progress with a focus on future trends on applied mineralogy and promote interdisciplinary cooperation. Furthermore the congress is a support program to encourage young delegates to attend.

Looking forward to you coming to Mianyang, China in 2013.
