4th World Conference on Sampling and Blending (WCSB4)
The Fourth World Conference on Sampling and Blending (WCSB4) will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from the 21st to the 23rd October 2009. WCSB4 follows the first three successful WCSB conferences held in Esbjerg (2003), Brisbane (2005) and Porto Alegre (2007), and, in keeping with the wishes of the first WCSB committee to hold the conference on all the major continents, the next venue will be Africa i.e. Cape Town. The WCSB was initiated in Denmark in 2003 as a forum for interaction between sampling practitioners from different disciplines operating in fields such as mining, industry, agriculture, environmental sciences, medicine, pharmacy and others. Despite the many applications and numerous challenges facing samplers throughout the world there is commonality to be found in the application of principles and finding solutions. The WSCB conferences are aimed at improving the level of understanding of the theory and practice of sampling, encouraging best practice and allowing an exchange of ideas associated with the theory of sampling and the practical application.
