The conference's opening address was given by Dr Phil Schwarz.

Keynote speakers were:
     Prof. Martin Sommerfeld, University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany
     Prof. Rajat Mittal,
Johns Hopkins University, USA
     Mark Davis,
Rio Tinto, HIsmelt, Australia
     Scott Thibault,
CPFD Software, USA
     Djamel Lakehal,
CEO of ASCOMP, Switzerland
     Markus Braun,
ANSYS, Germany

The conference focused on the application of CFD in the oil and gas, metal production, mineral processing, power generation, chemicals, food and other process industries.

The conference continued a successful series of meetings aimed at promoting and advancing the application of CFD in the minerals and process industries where technologies often involve challenging aspects such as multiphase flow, combustion, phase change, non-Newtonian flow, etc.

The program presented papers on a wide variety of applications including coal combustion, hydrocyclones, casting, fluidised beds, smelting, furnaces, slurries, steel making, crystallisation, stirred tanks, bio-engineering, granular flow and many others.
