” On behalf of the KINCE organization & scientific committee, I have great pleasure in welcoming you to the 1st Kuwait International Nanotechnology Conference and Exhibition, KINCE-2016, at the Regency Hotel, State of Kuwait.
The first nanotechnology conference in Kuwait aims to bring world-wide scientists in this multidisciplinary field to Kuwait to disclose their important recent research. The conference also aims to show to the international participants, the current nano-research and the state of the art nano-facilities available in Kuwait and the region. This Conference focuses on four main areas which are: Information Technology; Material & Devices; Energy, and medicine. Beside the invited elite speakers (6 Keynote and 16 Invited Speakers), we received a total of 108 oral and poster abstracts from top academic individuals from 28 countries. Such presentations are tackling subjects like: nanostructure growth, fabrication, model, device design, testing, applications, health aspects….. etc. of nanotechnology.
Beside this main academic role of the Kuwait International Nanotechnology Conference and Exhibition, KINCE-2016, there is another important role we decided to consider at this conference, which is enhancing the society awareness about nanotechnology. We think, this role is needed for a developing small country like Kuwait. This awareness will target, high school students and teachers, undergraduate students and also will target the decision makers in Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf region. To fulfill this, a mini-workshop, discussion sessions, university students’ involvement, high schools teachers andstudents’ visits to the exhibition with dedicated lectures to them, were also included in the program. Successful story will be introduced to the society to know how nanotechnology can help in developing the economics of the GCC countries.
I would like to thank our sponsors and the members of all the technical committees of this conference without whom this conference will not be organized.
Finally, I wish you a knowledgeable conference and a pleasant stay in Kuwait.“
The papers presented in “Kuwait International Nanotechnology Conference & Exhibition” will have the chance to be published in a special issue of “Science of Advanced Materials – SAM“.
While selected papers will be published at International Journal of Materials Engineering Innovation, IJMatEI, (indexed in Scopus) after peer reviewing according to Publisher guidelines.
