9th Arab-American Frontiers Symposium
October 23 – 25, 2023

The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in partnership with Texas A&M University at Qatar and Hamad Bin Khalifa University, are pleased to announce the 9th Arab-American Frontiers of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Symposium. The upcoming meeting will be held on October 23-25, 2023 in Doha, Qatar. The call for applications is now open for scientists, engineers, and medical professionals from the United States and the Arab region to submit their application online before the deadline of May 1, 2023, 11:59 PM ET (Washington D.C. time).

This program brings together outstanding early/mid-career scientists, engineers, and medical professionals (within 15 years of most recent degree), from the United States and the 22 countries of the Arab League for a series of symposia to discuss exciting advances and opportunities in their fields. The goal of these meetings is to enhance scientific exchange and dialogue among early-to-middle career researchers in Arab countries and the United States, including the Arab science diaspora, and through this interaction facilitate research collaboration within and beyond the region. Another unique aspect of the Frontiers events is the pluri-disciplinarity of the participants’ background and research interest.

One of the main objectives of this Frontiers symposium is to advance our understanding of cutting-edge S&T trends in the U.S. and the Arab region and to foster dialogue and collaborations across disciplines. The upcoming symposium will address the following topics:

  • Session I: Precision Medicine
  • Session II: Quantum Computing
  • Session III: Decarbonization
  • Session IV: Assistive Technologies for Equity and Inclusion

We strongly encourage young scientists, engineers and medical professionals working on related research to apply to this truly pluri-disciplinary meeting, as long as they fulfill the eligibility criteria. Please also distribute to your interested colleagues and your network. Each general participant will also have the opportunity to present his or her research during poster sessions. Travel of selected participants will be covered.

Please remember to submit your application online by the deadline of 11:59 PM EDT on May 1, 2023. For questions regarding the upcoming symposium or the application process, please e-mail us at: AAFrontiers@nas.edu.
