Welcome to Lead & Zinc '05

International symposia on lead and zinc have been held on a regular basis: Lead-Zinc '70 in St. Louis (organized by TMS-AIME), Lead-Zinc-Tin '80 in Las Vegas (organized by TMS-AIME), Zinc '85 in Tokyo (organized by MMIJ), Lead-Zinc '90 in Anaheim (organized by TMS-AIME), Zinc & Lead '95 in Sendai (organized by MMIJ and MetSoc-CIM), Zinc and Lead Processing in Calgary (organized by MetSoc-CIM) and Lead-Zinc 2000 in Pittsburgh (organized by TMS-AIME). The present meeting follows in the footsteps of those previous lead and zinc symposia. It will provide an international forum for the lead and zinc processing industries to exchange information with respect to current processing technologies for primary and secondary lead and zinc, as well as emerging technologies for both metals. The symposium scope extends from process fundamentals to operational practices, and also includes various environmental issues. Comprehensive reviews of the major applications of both metals, such as galvanizing and lead-acid batteries, and of mining issues such as acid drainage and waste treatment, are also included. Special emphasis is placed on less energy intensive technologies which are in harmony with environmental conservation. Various social events are scheduled, and these will allow informal discussion and the establishment of fraternal relationships among the delegates. After the symposium, three tours are planned to various Japanese lead and zinc processing operations.

Welcome to Kyoto City for Pb & Zn '05

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the international symposium on lead and zinc processing which will be held in Kyoto from October 16 to 19, 2005. Kyoto is in the heart of Japan and was an old capital for more than a thousand years. Osaka next to Kyoto is Japan's second largest commercial city; Kobe next to Osaka is Japan's second largest seaport and gateway to the Pacific Ocean. These three cities in the area known as Kansai area have been forming an original province of cultures for a long time, different from the Kantou area around Tokyo. We hope you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere brought about with Kansai cultures and its old history.
Kyoto Terrsa where the symposium will be held, is located within a ten-minutes walk south from Kyoto JR station and within a five-minutes walk west from Kujyo station of the subway which runs through the down town of Kyoto from north to south. Kyoto JR station is about 1hour 15minutes train ride or 1.5 hours bus trip from Kansai International Airport, which is the other most convenient international airport for the majority of overseas visitors beside Narita Tokyo International Airport.
The organizers of the Pb & Zn '05 are most pleased to welcome you to Kyoto and hope that you thoroughly enjoy your stay.
