International Conference on Phosphates (ICP) :
Fundamentals, Processes and Technologies
15-17 October 2020, Mohammed VI Polytechinc University, Benguerir, Morocco

International Conference on Phosphates (ICP)

ABOUT

CONFERENCE

Phosphate Research Network (PhoResNet) gathers national and international scientists and Professionals involved in the Phosphates industry. One of the main objectives of PhoResNet is to promote research in the field of phosphate and its derivatives with high added values allowing synergies between university researchers and industrials.

In this context, Phoresnet organizes in collaboration with UM6P a biennial conference “Phosphate Days” in its 2nd edition “Phosphate Days 2020” which provides a unique setting and space to bring together Scientists and Engineers, from all over the world to exchange new findings in order to develop collaborations and partnerships.

Phosphate Days include two sub-events, namely “International Conference on Phosphates (ICP): Fundamentals, processes and technologies and “Young Researchers Days (YRD)”.

“The International Conference on Phosphates (ICP): Fundamentals, processes and technologies” is a multidisciplinary scientific event covering a wide range of research areas around phosphates and related applications.

The safety and well-being of our participants is of paramount importance to PDAYS Organizing committee. After careful consideration and in light of the global health emergency and pervasive travel restrictions, PDAYS Organizing committee has decided to convert PDAYS 2020 to a fully virtual conference.

The aim of the conference is to gather scientists and engineers to discuss their new findings in the main following research fields:

PHOSPHATE MINING VALUE CHAIN

Phosphates and related resources: deposition, exploration..

COMPLEX FLUIDS MODELING

Transport Engineering of complex fluid: Phenomenology, rheology..

CHEMISTRY, PROCESSES & MATERIALS

Chemistry, processes, and advanced materials..

SUSTAINABLE MINING

Mining environment and circular economy..

AGRICULTURE AND BIOTECHNOLOGY

Agriculture, biotechnology, fertilizers and food security..

INDUSTRIAL SITE & SETTLEMENT PLANNING

Sustainable and smart territorial & site planning..

THE CONFERENCE
WILL INCLUDE

  • Plenary Lectures
  • Keynotes
  • Oral and poster presentations
  • Exhibition stands
  • Workshops
  • Trainings
  • Visits of the Experimental Mine, Experimental farm, and Green Energy Park

YRD will be dedicated to young researchers (PhDs and Post Docs) offering them an opportunity to present early results of their research and the expected future innovations. Special awards will be attributed to distinguished young candidates, in recognition for their significant contribution in the field.

WORKSHOP 1

Planning and control of ports activities:
Focus on bulk ports in the era of industry 4.0

WORKSHOP 2

Sustainable development of nanotechnology
in agriculture
