Dr. Mahmoud invited to fourth Arab-American Frontiers symposium

Dr. Hussam Mahmoud has been invited to participant in the fourth Arab-American Frontiers of Science, Engineering, and Medicine symposium, hosted by the Masdar Institute of Science Technology on its campus in Abu Dhabi on 5-7 November 2016. The upcoming symposium is held in partnership with Masdar Institute, New York University Abu Dhabi, Khalifa University and Petroleum Institute. It is also made possible thanks to the support of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). They have received hundreds of outstanding applications from the Arab region and the United States but only a small fraction of the applicants have been invited to participate.

The Arab-American Frontiers symposium intends to bring together researchers from many different disciplines. Thus, while the sessions of the meeting are designed to explore the frontiers of research in the fields of nanotechnology, water and solar energy, space technologies, neuroscience and oil and gas exploration, we will also have participants whose research falls within broader applications of these disciplines. Past experiences have shown that this leads to very interesting cross-disciplinary discussions and research collaborations.

Congratulations Hussam!
