It’s a bit early to be talking about this conference since there isn’t much information, no speakers, no programme, etc. but there’s still time to pull that all together since the Inventions Nanotech Middle East Conference (aka, Inventions Nanotech ME) is scheduled for Nov. 3-5, 2013. From the Conference Overview page,
The Conference will host top notch industry experts from all over the world who will address the following crucial topics through live demonstrations and case studies:
Energy / Oil & Gas
The event will be held at the Qatar National Convention Center.
There are two main sources of nanotech news items in that region. Iran or INIC (Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council [my Dec. 27, 2012 posting]), which continuously publicizes its nanotechnology research, and Saudi Arabia (KAUST or King Abdullah University of Science and Technology), which publicizes its work on solar energy (my July 30, 2012 posting), for the most part.
Good luck to the conference organizers.
