IWAM-2013 was the fifth International Workshop on Advanced Materials organized and sponsored by Ras Al Khaimah Centre for Advanced Materials (RAK CAM). The workshop included in-depth discussions on the fundamental science and applications of Advanced Materials including nanostructured materials and nanotechnology, and to stimulate international research collaboration with RAK CAM in diverse areas ranging from chemical, electronic and magnetic materials to environmental, renewable energy and biomedical applications. The general theme of IWAM-2013 was “Roles advanced materials and nanostructures play in solving outstanding problems in clean and sustainable energy and environment.”.
The program included 22 invited talks by a group of world leaders in Advanced Materials addressing topics dealing with research that has the potential for the greatest impact on developing clean and renewable forms of energy, nano medicine for improved diagnostics and therapy, and a clean healthy environment. In addition, two poster sessions with 86 poster presentations were an integral part of the workshop program. The synergism produced by bringing together more than 120 researchers and students from 18 countries with research interests in diverse areas of the field of advanced materials enhanced scientific collaboration which will take this field a step closer in realizing its enormous potential for novel materials and nanotechnologies.
