First Announcement and Call for Papers
BulkEurope 2006
International Conference on Storing, Handling and Transporting Bulk
5-6 October 2006, Barcelona, Spain

Over the last 25 years the European bulk material storing, handling and transporting industry changed dramatically. Quite a few “old” famous companies closed their doors or merged and new companies were established. The key word today to survive as a company active in this industry is innovation. Innovation that for example leads to new equipment or component designs, new terminal or factory lay-outs and innovations in operational, control and maintenance procedures. However, innovations are only valuable if they find their way to the industry. BulkEurope2006 is an excellent opportunity to share and exchange ideas between the academic institutes, the engineering and consultancy companies and the end users of bulk material handling, transporting and storing systems. I therefore strongly recommend plant managers and operators, design engineers, consultants, researchers, associations and all other dry bulk materials handling specialists from the end user industries, contracting companies, equipment manufactures,
universities and governmental institutions to participate and hope to welcome you all in Barcelona!

Yours sincerely,

Prof.dr.ir. Gabriel Lodewijks
Prof. Dr. Ir. Gabriel Lodewijks, Conference Chair

Scope and Main Topics
The scope of this conference will cover but is not limited to all aspects of design, operation, maintenance, surveillance and automation of bulk materials handling plants and individual parts of equipment for bulk material transport, storage, handling and mechanical processing in various industries such as mining, cement, power generation, steel making, ship-, rail-, and road transport and others. Presentations on safety, environmental and legal aspects of bulk materials handling will be equally welcome.

Aims and Objectives
This conference aims to provide a forum for researchers, design engineers, plant managers and operators, consultants and associations and all other bulk materials handling specialists from universities, equipment manufacturers, contracting companies, end user industries and governmental institutions to exchange and enlarge their knowledge and to keep up-to-date with the latest developments. It will also serve as a networking platform for all attendants to make new contacts and to refresh the old ones, to strength and enlarge their private network and broaden their possibilities.
