Towards promoting research in advanced materials and nanotechnology, the Kuwait University Nanotechnology Research Facilities (KUNRF) and Kuwait University Semiconductor Research Facility (KUSRF) have recently participated in the first International Nanotechnology Conference & Exhibition (KINCE-2016), which was held from 9th to 11th February, 2016 at Hayat Regency Hotel, Kuwait. The two research facilities were established in 2009 as a part of the general facilities at the College of Engineering & Petroleum. The participation in the conference was made in the technical sessions and the exhibition. Several posters and oral presentations in the conference acknowledged the support by KUNRF and KUSRF. Also, the two research facilities presented several posters and provided brochures to the attendees at the exhibition describing lab equipment and their use in research activities at Kuwait University. The management and staff of KUNRF and KUSRF would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizing committee of KINCE-2016 and look forward for future participation in other local scientific conferences and exhibitions.
