The EMN meeting began in 2008 as a small workshop held at a traditional villa in Orland, Florida. Since then we have organized five successful workshops under the theme of Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology. In honor of the 2008 Orlando conference, these workshops were grouped under a conference series entitled “Villa Conference”. The Villa Conference series have grown beyond the traditional villa setting and have had continued success in 2009 (St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands), 2010 (Santorini, Greece), 2011 (Las Vegas, Nevada) , 2012 (Orlando, Florida) and 2013 (Houston, Texas).
The paramount EMN Meeting on Mesoporous Materials, April 1-4, 2016 will bring an opportunity for leading academic scientists, researchers and decision makers in the field of Membranes to get their latest discoveries acknowledged on the global arena. The EMN Meeting on Mesoporous Materials, that will continue for four days will take you to the voyage of knowledge providing you an opportunity to both collaborations and learn about the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in this broad field of Mesoporous Materials Technology from all over the world. The conference aims to shed light on the transnational nature of mesoporous materials research, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. Major scientific advancement in Mesoporous Materials Technology helped in solving many of the complicated issues in Energy Conversion, Environmental protection, Process Intensification and Biological field.
The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family. During from last few years Dubai was a 7th most visited city of the Wold due to cosmopolitan city with residents representing 185 nationalities and accommodate over 15 million tourists. Several ongoing tourism projects are designed to develop Dubai into a luxury destination that rivals any other part of the world. These include The Palms – a trio of palm shaped resort islands, The World – a series of man made islands laid out in the shape of the world map, an underwater hotel and an underground hotel.
Looking forward and welcome all of you with my great pleasure and honor on the EMN Meeting on Mesoporous Materials, Dubai-United Arab Emirates.
