The International Conference on Nanotechnology and its Applications will bring together leading nano-science experts: academics, researchers, scientists, and students from the world’s 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.

International Scientific Advisory Committee
The conference scientific advisory committee leading scientists in the field of nanotechnology and from prestigious institutions (UC Berkeley, Cambridge, Chinese Academy of Science and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign ...)
Targeted Audience
The conference intends to target local and regional scientists and researchers interested in various aspects of nanotechnological applications. It will, therefore, bring together an audience of international nature including several invited speakers from the USA and Europe. We expect the number of participants to be about 100-150.
Invited Speakers

The Organizing Committee has invited six of the most reputable scientists on various aspects of nanotechnology, from the United States and Europe. The list includes, large laboratory directors such as Max Planck Institute for Metal Research, in Stuttgart, Germany; Group leaders at premiere institutes such as University of California and CEO of nanotechnology industries such as Quartek, USA.
