First Sharjah International Conference on Nanotechnology and Its Applications: Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, April 10-12, 2007
International Conference on Nanotechnology and Applications
UAE | Posted on December 20th, 2006
The International Conference on Nanotechnology and its Applications will bring together leading nano-science experts: academics, researchers, scientists, and students from the worldís premiere institutions. It will provide an opportunity for scientists in the Gulf region and the Arab World to interact, exchange ideas and possibly start collaborations between various regional institutions and between these and the international nano-community.
The conference will focus on different aspects of Nanotechnology, beginning with synthesis and including characterization, assembly of nanostructures leading to nanodevice fabrication! It will also tackle issues related to the application of nanotechnology in everyday life. The major themes of the Conference will include:
1) Environmental application: sensors, pollution, green nanotechnology.
2) Petrochemical applications: petroleum refinement, production of gasoline from methanol.
3) Applications in the food industries and agriculture.
4) Material properties and basic science aspects of nanotechnology: synthesis, characterization, assembly, and processing of nanostructures. Theory, modeling and simulation.
About American Univeristy of Sharjah
American University of Sharjah (AUS) was founded in 1997 by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Sharjah, who envisioned the university as a leading educational institution in the Gulf region. American University of Sharjah is an independent, not-for-profit coeducational institution. Although consciously based on upon American institutions of higher education, AUS is also expected to be thoroughly grounded in Arab culture and to be part of a larger process of the revitalization of intellectual life in the Middle East. AUS is emerging as a leading comprehensive coeducational university in the Gulf, serving students from the region and around the world.
American University of Sharjah is licensed in the United States by the Department of Education of the State of Delaware. It is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, 215 662 5606). AUS is also licensed by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and all undergraduate and graduate programs are recognized by the ministry and have been awarded either accreditation or accreditation-eligible status. All bachelor's degree programs in the School of Engineering are accredited by ABET of the United States.
