“Presenting at the mining health and safety conference is a good opportunity for researchers to share the practical outcomes of their applied research,” says Tammy Eger, Vice President of Research at Laurentian University. “If your research will benefit from feedback from the mining industry or potentially impact occupational health and safety in the mining industry, the Workplace Safety North conference is an excellent forum for knowledge exchange.”
If you’re interested in presenting a paper at the annual WSN Mining Health and Safety conference, please complete the ‘Call for Papers’ form by January 20, 2023. Successful candidates will be contacted in February 2023.
