As always, The ICOME Conference will provide its special Award (Averroes Prize) to support Postdoctoral or PhD students, who are working in Materials & Energy fields, and to honor one of research leaders of the recent year.
Started by Pr. El-Ganaoui & Pr. Bennacer a few years ago, such a special section of ICOME conference raises every year to honor some best Oral/Poster presentations of participants whom offered a remarkable research work.
After a review decision through the ICOME even, top presentations will be nominated and a special Gala-Diner on their honor will be prepared. Averroes (Ibn Rushd) is chosen to be the designation denotation of such even.
Born on 1126 at Andalusia (Spain), Averroes (in Arabic: ابن رشد) or Ibn Rochd of Cordoba was a Muslim philosopher and great thinker who wrote about many subjects, including Philosophy, Theology, Medicine, Astronomy, Physics, Mathematics, Jurisprudence, Law and Linguistics. His philosophical works include numerous commentaries on Aristotle, for which he was known in the West as The Commentator.
Through Every ICOME Conference, organizers have the great pleasure to honor one of research leaders of the year. Such a prodigious event is an encouragement for young researchers to pursuit their works and becoming the future leaders of their fields.
