First International Symposium
«Rare and Rare Earth Elements: Mining, Separation and Modern Materials»
August, 21-26, 2014
We would like to invite you to participate in the Ith International Symposium «Rare and Rare Earth Elements: Mining, Separation and Modern Materials» (REES).
REES provides a high quality of professional presentations to scientists and engineers who wish to promote and communicate the interaction between technical advances in the field of rare and rare earth elements mining, modification, separation, research and application.
The goal is to bring researchers and practitioners together to share the latest knowledge on rare and rare earth elements technologies.
Symposium aims to:
present new trends in rare and rare earth elements mining, research and separation and recent achievements in advanced materials elaboration and developments for different purposes;
strengthen the already existing contacts between manufactures, highly-qualified specialists and young scientists.
Main topics include:
Technologies of rare and rare earth elements mining
Techniques and approaches for rare and rare earth elements separation
Application of rare and rare earth elements
Properties and diagnostics of rare and rare earth elements
Advanced materials based on rare and rare earth elements
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Ith International Symposium «Rare and Rare Earth Elements: Mining, Separation and Modern Materials».Conference language: English, Russian, ArmenianParticipation fee The participation is 1,000 USD. This price includes proceedings, coffee breaks, lunches and the banquet.

Accomodation & Venue
The Symposium will be held on August 21-26, 2014 in Yerevan, Armenia.
Yerevan (population: 1,201,539 (1989 census); 1,088,300 (2004 estimate) is the largest city and capital of Armenia. It is situated along the Hrazdan River, which is not navigable, on the Ararat Plain.
Yerevan is a leading industrial, cultural, and scientific centre in the Caucasus region. It is also at the heart of an extensive rail network and is a major trading centre for agricultural products. In addition, industries in the city produce metals, machine tools, electrical equipment, chemicals, textiles, and food products.
Educational and cultural facilities in Yerevan include universities, the ArmenianAcademy of Sciences, a state museum, and several libraries.
The largest repository of Armenian manuscripts, and indeed one of the biggest repositories of manuscripts in the world, is the Matenadaran.
There is special discounted rate for conference attendees who intend to stay at the Family Hotel (http://www.familyhotel.am).
