The Arab International Conference on Nanotechnology

1-3 March 2021
Kuwait

المؤتمر العربي الدولي  لتكنولوجيا النانو- الكويت

اونلاين من 1 - 3 مارس 2021 

The AICNANO Conference will now be conducted online on March 2021 after postponed it from March 2020 due to Covid-19 pandemic

The Conference

The Arab International Conference and Exhibition on Nanotechnology (AICNano-2021)

AICNano-2021 is organized by The Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) to bring, online, together expert researchers, scholars, and practitioners from international academic institutions, research centers, and industrial sectors to share their expertise relative to applications and knowledge on nanotechnology and advanced materials.

AICNano-2021 will host high profile preliminary speakers, international researchers.  

Nanotechnology has become a research priority to improve and revolutionize both industry and technology sectors such as energy, environment, information technology, medicine, transportation, and food safety.

The Globally active research and development of nanotechnology has already succeeded in using nanotechnologies in hundreds of products like cosmetics, coatings, drug delivery, pollutants’ solutions, and sensors. Moreover, nanomaterials are implemented in: automotive construction applications as lightweight and strong materials, water applications as durable and disinfectant materials, electronic applications as high-performance devices, in health and medicine as efficient treatment and diagnostic materials.

Nanotechnology is not a future matter anymore, it’s already here. It promises to improve our lives significantly and efficiently. With the local and international efforts, nanotechnology continues to develop solutions to impact societies around the world. Therefore, bringing together today’s scientists and innovation leaders to raise the level of the priority of nanoscience and nanotechnology can advance the associated manufacturing and applications.
