    Dates and Location

    The Third International Symposium on Recycling of Metals and Engineered Materials will be held November 12-16, 1995 at the Marriott Grand Hotel, Point Clear, Alabama.

    Symposium Scope

    Worldwide awareness of the need to better manage our limited resources is rapidly bringing the era of the "throwaway society" to an end. In response to growing pressures to limit waste, an increasing number of industries have established successful recycling loops. This has led to the development of sophisticated process technologies, which in turn has stimulated basic research. The purpose of this symposium is to bring participants together to discuss practical as well as fundamental aspects of recycling of metals and engineered materials.

    Software for Process Analysis and Design

    An Open Forum Presentation
    Presenter: Arthur E. Morris
    Forum Times: Sunday, November 12, 1995 1:00 - 2:30 PM or 3:00 - 4:30 PM or Tuesday, November 14, 1995 12:30 - 2:00 PM
    Cost: $20 Indicate your plans to participate on the enclosed Registration form.

    This presentation is an opportunity for you to see and test software that is available for the analysis and design of processes. The presentation will include software intended for the novice user as well as sophisticated flowsheet-modeling software intended for modeling entire plants. The session will include an introduction to the various software packages, followed by brief demonstrations of the software. Copies of software developed at UMR will be distributed free of charge. The presentation will not cover single-use software developed for repetitive calculations on a single process.

    The forum is planned to complement the technical program of the Symposium. Since process modeling software will be increasingly important in the year 2000 and beyond, this presentation is a valuable accompaniment to the Symposium.

    To give personal attention, each session is limited to eight registrants. To make reservations to participate in this Open Forum, please indicate on the Advance Registration Form.

    About the presenter: Arthur E. Morris is Professor Emeritus of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Missouri-Rolla and a staff member of the Center for Pyrometallurgy, Rolla, Missouri. He has developed various process modeling programs, and has directed four international conferences on the applications of computer software to extractive and process metallurgy. Dr. Morris was co-presenter of a TMS Short Course on Computer Software for Metallurgical Calculations at the 1994 TMS Annual Meeting.
