Seventh ARAB-AMERICAN FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, AND MEDICINE SYMPOSIUM

The seventh Arab-American Frontiers symposium will be held in partnership with the Library of Alexandria and the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, and will be hosted in Cairo, Egypt, November 17-19, 2019. The meeting will convene U.S. and Arab scientists, engineers, and medical professionals to discuss major scientific advances on a wide array of topics relevant to the MENA region and globally.
 
This program brings together outstanding young scientists, engineers, and medical professionals from the United States and the 22 countries of the Arab League for a series of symposia to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in their fields. The goal of these meetings is to enhance the scientific exchange and dialogue among young researchers in Arab countries and the United States, including the Arab science diaspora, and through this interaction, facilitate research collaboration within and beyond the region.

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
 
The Arab-American Frontiers program is participant driven: an organizing committee of 12 members makes the final selection of session topics, suggests speakers, and chairs the individual sessions during the symposium. The session topics presented at the symposium were:
  • Session I: Sensing Technologies
  • Session II: Artificial Intelligence
  • Session III: Water Management
  • Session IV: Infectious Disease
  • Session V: Community Resilience
One of the main objectives of Frontiers symposia is to foster pluridisciplinary dialogue and collaborations. Therefore, while speakers in each session are selected as experts in the topics above, each general participant also has the opportunity to present his or her research during poster sessions.
 
The following individuals served as organizing committee members: 
 
Co-Chairs

Dr. Hussam Mahmoud, Colorado State University, USA
Dr. Sameh Soror, Helwan University, Egypt
