Call for Abstract - Student Poster Competition

Best conference I have ever attended. All the programs were excellent. The student-luncheon social program was awesome as I managed to talk to some representatives from different industry to get to know some real-life experiences as a mining engineer. The exhibition opened my eyes really wide as there were many things I have never seen. Attending the conference definitely increased my mining knowledge and also a place where you could get involved with networking. CIM conference is certainly a great place for networking and knowledge purposes. I would strongly recommend students to attend!

The Student program will ensure CIM Toronto 2013 is both informative and educational. It will enable you to put your best foot forward and make a lasting impression. And it is one of the greatest opportunities to make friends with your peers from schools across the country.
