The conference will bring together distinguished researchers in the field from US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Materials science is one of the most rapidly growing multidisciplinary fields of basic and applied research, with new advanced materials being the key to technological and societal development and the fact that the US, EU and Asia-Pacific have already established government-sponsored institutions or centers within the existing universities that are entirely dedicated to research in materials science.
Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates is where most of the research community in the UAE and the Middle East that works in both academia and industry in this field are located, and New York University Abu Dhabi relishes the opportunity to host this International Conference and bring researchers in the field from around the globe together in Abu Dhabi. This conference is planned to be an annual event and will act as a seed to establish a Center for Smart Materials. In addition, the conference will also be an inaugural event for the UAE Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
