The bi-annual Conference on Nano, Micro and Biotechnology NaMiBiTech will be held on October 26–28, 2014 at the Al-Akhawayn University, Ifrane, Morocco. Contributions of scientists active in the mentioned fields are much welcomed and active participation is appreciated.
A first initiative of this conference series, the MIFCAB workshop, was organized in November 2012 in Jordan and has since then attracted much attention from researchers. The MIFCAB and NaMiBiTech are traditionally held in the Middle East and North-Africa (MENA) region, yet attract and welcome speakers from all around the world.
NaMiBiTECH, as a follow-up of the MIFCAB initiative, deals with microfludics, microreactor and flow chemistry topics in both bio and chemistry applications. NaMiBiTech has an additional theme focusing on nanomaterial and catalytic processes.
Prof. Dr. Evgeny Rebrov, Warwick University, UK
Prof. Dr. Volker Hessel, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands
Dr. Mohamed Zourob, Cranfield University, UK
The main topics of NaMiBiTech 2014 program will be divided into three platforms:
Functional materials and catalytic processes
Renewable energy and materials
Novel reactive media
Flow chemistry and continuous processing
Process miniaturization and intensification
Sustainable and efficient manufacturing
Lab-on-chip and bio/nanotechnology
Novel pharmacological processes
Abstract submission and publication opportunities

Venue and location
The NaMiBiTech conference will be hosted by the Akhawayn University Ifrane at the University Campus site. Founded in 1993, Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane opened its doors to students in January 1995. Based on the principles of diversity and with an international outlook, the university’s mission is driven by values of human solidarity and tolerance. Al Akhawayn University has adapted its administrative, pedagogical, and academic organization to the American university system, and English is the language of instruction. Recently Al Akhawayn University has enlarged and strengthened its Engineering Programs and is currently providing various Technology programs (see http://www.aui.ma/en/).
Hotels for accommodation in Ifrane will be proposed to the participants shortly. Further information will be presented on the website.
