First International Symposium

«Rare and Rare Earth Elements: Mining,  Separation and Modern Materials»

 

August, 21-26, 2014

 

Yerevan, Armenia

 

Invitation

 

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.

Proceedings

 

Dear participants!

Please be advised that 50 invited papers will be published in the Special Issue of the journal “Russian Physics Journal” (referenced in Scopus).

 

“Camera-ready” manuscripts of selected invited papers will be required from authors before December 30, 2014 for following review.

 

Participants interested in presenting a contribution to the forum are invited to submit an abstract on topics lying within the scope of the conference.

 

 

Accomodation & Venue

 

 

 

 

The Symposium  will be held on August 21-26, 2014 in Yerevan, Armenia.
