APCOM 2015 abstracts are due Aug. 31
The 37th International Symposium on the Application of Computers and Operations Research in the Mineral Industry (APCOM 2015) will be held May 23-27, 2015, in Fairbanks, Alaska. The 2015 APCOM conference is being hosted on behalf of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, co-sponsored by AEG and in cooperation with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Visit the conference website for more information.

The technical program of this symposium would be a balance of traditional areas of exploration, including geostatistics, mine design, production planning, investment analysis, artificial intelligence simulation, mine automation, rock mechanics, mineral processing and data management systems, including computer applications and optimizations in oil and gas industries. All are designed to facilitate and promote application of computers and operations research in the mineral industry.

This is the first time AEG is joining APCOM, so we would also solicit any sessions that you would like to organize in this conference. Please contact us with your proposition of a session befitting the conference theme. Abstracts are invited from scientists, researchers and engineers in all sectors, including academy, industry, government and education, and are due by Aug. 31.

What caused California's Napa Valley earthquake?
National Geographic
The magnitude 6.0 earthquake that struck California's Napa Valley north of San Francisco — collapsing older buildings, sparking fires and causing scores of injuries — fell along a series of cracks in the Earth tied to the famed and feared San Andreas Fault. The event centered about 6.7 miles underneath Northern California's wine country. There, like most locales along the Pacific rim, ocean crust and continental crust clash to create numerous faults and quakes.

Changing the landscape: Geoscientists embrace 3-D printing
EARTH Magazine
The rapid proliferation of 3-D printing technology that began in the early 2000s sent ripples of excitement through the tech world and beyond; some pundits predicted 3-D printing would transform everything about modern life. Until a few years ago, however, the high price of printers put them out of reach for most academic researchers and hobbyists. Now, more affordable printers have broken this barrier, and geoscientists have started testing the waters.
