The Qatar Foundation Annual Research Conference (QF-ARC) 2013 took place at Qatar National Convention Centre in Doha, supported by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), November 24-25, 2013. The two-day conference was titled ‘Qatar’s Cross-Cutting Research Grand Challenges’. Professor Yury Gogotsi at the The Qatar Foundation Annual Research Conference (QF-ARC) 2013
It followed on from a series of high-level engagements with academia, government, industry, and research institutes across the country to identify the grand challenges fundamental to implementing the Qatar National Research Strategy.

The conference brought together researchers and leaders from Qatar, as well as speakers from prominent science and research institutions worldwide, to discuss and debate latest developments, transfer knowledge, and build relationships for future collaboration. At QF-ARC 2013 professor Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University, USA had  a talk on Carbon Materials for Capacitive Energy Storage.

During the conference, participants were encouraged to leave a lasting imprint on society by embracing innovative research ideas and exchanging valuable knowledge that can propel science towards new frontiers.

Students, scientists and researchers forged mutually beneficial collaborations, in order to accelerate QF-ARC 2013 focused on pressing research challenges, including protecting Qatar’s cyber infrastructure, water reuse and desalination, developing and deploying solar energy solutions, ensuring sustainable food supply, sustainable urbanization, mobility and road safety, human capacity development, integrated health management systems, and supporting Arabic culture, arts, heritage, media and language.

A new highlight that year were interactive debates between international and local experts, as well as presentations and panel discussions.

Formerly known as the QF Annual Research Forum, the conference was inaugurated in 2010 to support and highlight Qatar’s research capabilities and further the country’s vision to become a leading international center for research and development excellence and innovation.

Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential.

Recipe for Safer Batteries — Just Add DiamondsResearchers described a process by which nanodiamonds — tiny diamond particles 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair — curtail the electrochemical deposition, called plating, that can lead to hazardous short-circuiting of lithium ion batteries.
