Ammonia Combustion Meeting
Ammonia is a carbon-free fuel having great potentials for decarbonizing the energy, industrial and transportation sectors. Large scale use of energy conversion systems exploiting ammonia combustion poses unique challenges and many relevant research opportunities. To address those challenges and promote the exchange among researchers active in the field the First Ammonia Combustion Meeting has been organized. The meeting will feature invited talks from experts of academia and industry, presenting a review of the state-of-the-art on different aspects of ammonia combustion in the field, and highlight the key challenges for the community to tackle. The invited talks will be followed by a panel discussion. A proactive role from attendees will be solicited and is warmly welcomed. During the meeting the following topics will be discussed: Ammonia oxidation kinetics Laminar flames and fundamental combustion properties Canonical turbulent flames MILD combustion Laboratory scale industrial burners Internal Combustion Engines However, according to the aim of maximizing discussion opportunity among the participants, free discussions and exchanges on every aspect of ammonia usage as energy carriers are welcome. The ultimate challenge of the meeting is to identify and consolidate common interests around selected topics, case studies, and issues that will be pursued after the meeting in a synergistic and collaborative effort for a swift and effective ammonia utilization in combustion based systems.

Combustion in Extreme Conditions
THE CLEAN COMBUSTION RESEARCH CENTER The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) at KAUST draws on multiple engineering and science disciplines, all of which contribute to the improvement of existing combustion technologies while allowing to pursue novel and innovative solutions. A key goal of the Center is to develop simple, cost-effective processes for supplying clean energy by combustion, partial oxidation, or other means relying on chemical energy conversion. The Center research agenda includes the improvement of less conventional processes such as hydrocarbon fuels gasification in order to obtain hydrogen or hydrogen-rich fuels while capturing the carbon for sequestration or use in high value-added materials. The Center is developing an international collaboration network through Global Research Partnership, Academic Excellence Alliance, KAUST Investigators, and KAUST Fellows with various combustion research institutions worldwide. Industry collaboration is being pursued through joint topic development, collective commitment, co-supervision, shared facilities, and onsite training and internship programs. KAUST’s emphasis on collaborative research among centers is crucial to energy efficiency, energy storage, and energy utilization as well as to the development of new alternative fuel sources. The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) works closely with KAUST’s other Research Centers. These include those Research Centers focused on catalysis, membranes, solar energy, desalination, and bioscience and bioengineering with an emphasis on energy utilization and bio-nano-energy science.

KAUST Research Conference on Extreme Bandwidth Communication: From mmWave, THz to Optical Bands
KAUST Research Conference on Extreme Bandwidth Communication: From mmWave, THz to Optical Bands ‌ The technological evolution has led to the current high-performing wireless communication systems that we use on a daily basis. However, coping with the increasing demand is becoming more and more challenging, especially since we are approaching the limits of what can be done with the available resources. One of these resources is bandwidth. This spectrum scarcity problem has motivated researchers to explore new frequencies for wireless communications. Due to this reason, the upper radio-frequency (RF) spectrum, from mmWave and THz to optical bands, is being pursued, which is termed as “Extreme Bandwidth Communication”. This conference brings world experts and the brightest minds from academia and industry to present the latest trends, challenges, results, and opportunities in the field of extreme bandwidth communication.

KAUST Virtual Workshop Intelligent illumination of the Earth
Machine Learning (ML) is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that has shown recently incredible potential in solving problems efficiently and providing a measure of certainty to the solution. It has experienced rapid growth in the last decade across diverse industries, including communications, financial services, security, transportation, and others. A combination of large-scale data, a new array of Machine Learning tools, robust mathematical foundations, big advances in computer hardware and software led to the development of Machine Learning applications which produced dramatic results, enabling new opportunities. Among these opportunities are finding solutions to the many Earth discovery problems. From seismic to well, gravity and magnetics, and all other measurements of the Earth physical properties, the geosciences community is now realizing the potential of machine learning in building a realistic model of the Earth from Oil & Gas exploration and production, to geotechnical and environmental applications. This first of its kind of workshop in KAUST (combining Machine Learning with Earth sciences) aims to highlight the challenges, opportunities, and trends related to the adoption of Machine Learning in geosciences research and industrial workflows. Researchers from academia, geological bodies, Oil & Gas, and technology companies will present applications and case studies, promote discussion, and propose practical solutions to take greater advantage of Machine Learning methods.

The Ocean Soundscape Of The Anthropocene
The underwater ocean soundscape is a critical but understudied habitat feature directly affecting marine animals that rely on sound. However, with increasing human activity the ocean has become noisier. This is especially true with the advent of submarine construction and seismic exploration, and the ever-increasing noise produced by shipping and other human activities. Noise travels much further through water than air and thus has the capacity to have more widespread effects on marine life, especially those that have evolved to use sound to communicate, locate prey and habitats, and detect risks. In this workshop, we will bring together researchers measuring, describing, and comparing soundscapes in marine ecosystems across the world. The speakers will address questions such as: How have soundscapes changed in the Anthropocene, particularly the role of the anthrophony? Is the biophony, and thus most animal communication, potentially masked by anthropogenic noise? Are there spatial (tropical vs temperate vs polar, freshwater vs marine, coastal vs offshore) and temporal (diel, seasonal) differences in the dominance of noise? Is acoustic complexity related to marine biodiversity? What can we learn from relatively undisturbed ecosystems about the effects of noise, and are there conservation strategies to mitigate such negative effects?

RESILIENCE It’s the ability to withstand adversity—to weather challenges, setbacks, and unforeseen circumstances. The global pandemic has tested the resilience of people and systems the world over. But humanity has proven resilient in a time of exceptional adversity. And so it is with cautious optimism that the theme for WEP 2022 is Resilience. WEP 2022 will explore tipping points—stress events such as climate change, pandemic, resource shortage, rapid population growth, and more. What makes tipping points happen? How can we predict when they will occur? And how can we adapt, recalibrate and bounce back stronger? We hope that the theme “Resilience” would provide an approach for the global community, regardless of our perspectives and background, to come together in a collaborative manner and address the various adversities.
