Welcome Message by Paul Epping

   Dr. Paul Epping, United Arab Emirates

Material science and nanotechnology are probably the most important areas of research and developments for the future. This science has become entirely digital. The convergence of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are fully ingrained in the discovery of new materials. What usually was a tedious and expensive journey to find new materials can now be supported by computer simulations, propelled by algorithms. Because our society will encounter a multitude of challenges to make planet earth a better place to live, new materials are needed. Think of transportation, as it is moving more and more towards electrically driven engines, where the need of better performing batteries will be needed. Current materials are not yet at a level that speed of charging, weight, size and capacity are satisfying. New materials in construction, to reduce carbon emissions, are needed. An exploding area is space technology where we are raising the bar higher by traveling longer distances will need new materials that can deal with new environments as well as repairing at the spot, using additive manufacturing solutions, if damages occur or replacements are needed. These developments are drivers for the need of new (nano) materials. 

MEC- Nanotechnology 2020 will address the latest developments in nanotechnology and material science. We encourage scientists, and those who are applying new materials in new solutions or improving existing solutions, to submit findings, discoveries and areas that have to be explored further. An exhibition area will be available to show results of science and applications of the new material(s).
