A Look at MEMA 2015
The TMS Middle East - Mediterranean Materials Congress on Energy and Infrastructure Systems (MEMA 2015)
TMS
Posted on: 1/27/2015 ... Last week, 170 attendees from 23 countries met for the TMS Middle East - Mediterranean Materials Congress on Energy and Infrastructure Systems (MEMA 2015) in Doha, Qatar. The meeting, held January 11-14, focused on three technical tracks: Sustainable Infrastructure Materials; Materials for Energy Extraction, Conversion, and Storage; and Computational Materials Design. A goal of the technical program was to leverage regional interests and expertise, particularly along these three tracks, and the meeting offered attendees an important opportunity to develop relationships with experts in the Qatar region.

"Materials engineering and research underpins the Qatar Energy and Water Security Grand challenges," Dr. Mohammed Khaleel, executive director at Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI), said. "The scientific exchange and discussions at the TMS meeting will be very fruitful to researchers here in Qatar working on these two grand challenges. Bringing the TMS congress to Qatar is truly a good example of how well academia, research institutes, and industry are working together."
