One novelty: the conference part of the program was reduced to two half-day morning sessions, to allow members more time for meetings. The conference theme was ambitious: "Looking to The Future: Scenarios for 2025". Speakers addressed their subject (be it the economy, the developing world, the Mn industry, environmental & health issues …) by proposing possible scenarios of what could happen over the next 20 years. IMnI’s South African members hosted two days of technical tours prior to the conference (June 9th & 10th).
