Invitation to IBS 2022 in Perth Western Australia

The biannual International Biohydrometallurgy Symposium is a global forum that brings together representatives from industry, research, innovation and education sectors and government to share knowledge on cutting edge science and technology in the field of mining biotechnology and discuss innovative solutions and best practice approaches.

Drawing from the expertise in biotechnology, chemistry, mineralogy, and engineering, mining biotechnology can benefit the resource sector by enabling the extraction of value from low-grade minerals and wastes streams, providing tools for minerals exploration and environmental monitoring, and mitigating harmful environmental impacts.

The IBS 2022 will be held in Perth, Western Australia, 20-23 November 2022 (Note: original date changed due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions).

At present, the IBS 2022 conference is planned to be held at Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough to best facilitate in-person networking. The conference will run according to Australian national and Western Australian COVID-Safe guidelines.

As the potential restrictions regarding international travel remain uncertain, the option to switch to an online conference platform will also be considered, should the need arise. In either case, the IBS 2022 Local Organising Committee aspires to provide a high-quality, peer-reviewed program in a safe environment in which to showcase your research.

IBS 2022 will be hosted by Australia’s National Science Research Agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). The Local Organising Committee includes members from CSIRO and Curtin University.

We welcome you to IBS2022 to share your latest scientific advances, find solutions for industry challenges, attend as a sponsor or exhibitor to promote your technologies, services and products, and meet experts across the world.

On behalf of the IBS 2022 Local Organising Committee and IBS International Scientific Committee,
