A message from the Chair of COM 2021

Celebrating 60 years of comprehensive technical programming at the Conference of Metallurgists.

Welcome to COM 2021: Advances in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. This conference marks the 60th year that the Annual Conference of Metallurgists and MetSoc have provided comprehensive technical programming in the field of metallurgy. To celebrate this milestone, COM 2021 will offer a broad range of topics in hydrometallurgy, light metals, materials and manufacturing, mineral processing, pyrometallurgy and sustainability. The conference will provide an international forum for both industrial and academic researchers to meet and discuss recent advances in the field. It gives us great pleasure to invite you to Halifax, Nova Scotia in August 2021. The conference will be held in the new Halifax Convention Centre, steps away from downtown attractions and the Atlantic Ocean.
