The 12th International Copper Conference (Copper 2025)

November 16–20, 2025 • Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass
Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Technical Program

Copper 2025 will be part of Extraction 2025, an initiative forum for the technical community to discuss, from a more holistic perspective, the role of Copper, Nickel, Cobalt, and other critical metals in a more sustainable society.

Copper 2025 will aim to have cross-functional discussions from a societal perspective and engage with different actors to discuss not only fundamental, applied, and industrial advances in the field, but also to develop more critical thinking across all fields to understand priorities. A priority for Copper 2025 is to ensure that technical efforts are focused to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable society in which metals are a cornerstone to improve the quality of life throughout the world.

Abstract Guidelines

  • All abstracts (including invited speakers, plenary, etc.) must be submitted electronically via the online system following the easy, step-by-step instructions.
  • All abstracts must be written in English and have a maximum of 500 words.
  • A lead author/presenter may submit up to two abstracts.
  • Presentation types include oral and poster, student and non-student (if you are a professor but wish to have your student present the work, consider your submission a student presentation. Failure to do so will force the student to pay full price for registration).

Note: Submission of an abstract does not constitute acceptance for presentation nor registration for the conference. No financial assistance is available; the expectation is that financial resources to attend are available to the presenter.

Author Responsibilities and Duties

  • Deadlines: All authors must comply with the deadlines listed on this website (paper/extended abstract submission dates, registration payment, etc.)
  • Presentation: All accepted authors are expected to present in Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Payment of Fees by the Deadline: Extraction 2025 does not require a fee to submit an abstract. However, we count on your professionalism to pay your registration fee by April 18, 2025, if your abstract/paper is accepted. Failure to pay by the stipulated deadline may result in the removal of your oral or poster from the program and (if applicable) your paper/extended abstract from the proceedings. Presenters of multiple presentations need only to register once.
  • Paper/Extended Abstracts: All oral authors MUST submit a full (approx. 10 pages) paper or extended abstract (2-3 pages) for peer review. Papers are optional for plenary/panel sessions and invited keynotes. Papers/extended abstracts are not accepted for for poster presentations.
