ARAB-AMERICAN FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE, ENGINEERING, and MEDICINE
The third Arab-American Frontiers symposium will be held in partnership with the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia on December 5 - 7, 2015. The meeting will convene U.S. and Arab scientists, engineers and medical professionals to discuss major scientific advances on a wide array of topics under the overarching theme of "Sensing Technologies, Networks and Applications".
Based on the success of the long standing Kavli Frontiers of Science of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Frontiers of Engineering program of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, the National Academies initiated the Arab-American Frontiers of Science, Engineering, and Medicine program in 2011. This program brings together outstanding young scientists, engineers, and medical professionals from the United States and the 21 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. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered for selected participants.
