IWAM-2017 marks the ninth International Workshop on Advanced Materials organized and sponsored by the Ras Al Khaimah Centre for Advanced Materials (RAK CAM). The objectives of the workshop are to have 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-2017 is “Innovation in Energy Materials”.
The program includes 24 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, a tutorial on solar energy, 9 student talks and two poster sessions with 79 poster presentations are planned as an integral part of the workshop program. We are again very grateful to colleagues at the American University at Ras Al Khaimah for reviewing and selecting all poster abstracts. The synergism produced by bringing together more than 100 researchers and students from 18 countries with research interests in diverse areas of the field of advanced materials is expected to enhance scientific collaboration which will take this field a step closer to realizing its enormous potential for the betterment of mankind.
