54th Annual Clay Minerals Society Conference
June 2 - June 8
The first Clay Minerals Society Conference to be held in conjunction with the Oil Sands Clay Conference will take place June 2nd – 8th, 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta.
The Oil Sands Clay Conference is a biannual conference on the impact of clays on oil sands extraction, processing and tailings treatment/remediation and reclamation. The Oil Sands Clay Conferences have successfully blended both academic and applied research presentations, including expert guest speakers and conference delegates from Alberta, Canada, North America and around the world to solve problems in the oil sands industry caused by clays.
The Conference is organized by the Centre for Oil Sands Sustainability, one of NAIT’s applied research centres and The Clay Minerals Society, supported by BUKSA Associates.
The scientific program of the 2017 Clay Minerals Society Conference will bring together the leading minds from disciplines related to clays and clay minerals. It will consist of technical sessions that include oral and poster presentations focused around the theme of Living Clays. Attendees will be immersed in the world of clays and will have the chance to network with like-minded researchers from industry and academia as well as related technology professionals.
