International Conferences

Colorado State University will host the Tailings & Mine Waste 2020 Conference. More information can be found at tailingsandminewaste.com. The University of Alberta Geotechnical Centre will host the Tailings & Mine Waste 2021 Conference in Banff, Alberta, November 7-10, 2021.

The University of Alberta Geotechnical Centre has been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and made the difficult decision to postpone this year's International Oil Sands Tailings Conference (IOSTC 2020). We felt that it was the right choice to ensure everyone's safety and especially given the extraordinary hardships being felt among industry and consultants due to the pandemic. This conference will be held in late 2022. Thank you for your understanding at this time.
