​The 3rd International Confere​nce on Arabs’ and Muslims’ History of Sciences (ICHS17)

Dec. 5-7, 2017

University of Sharjah

There is no doubt that Arabic and Islamic scientific and cultural heritage played an integral role in the current scientific and technological advances the world is witnessing now.  Through out its history, Arabic and Islamic scholars have proven themselves as unique model to be followed in various scientific fields including medical, social and humanitarian fields.


Over many decades the Arab and Muslim nation has led the world in scientific and engineering scholar and discovery, during which elite scholars were attracted to take part, participate and contribute to the advancements of knowledge in all walks of life.


One of the significant outcomes of what was described as a scientific revolution, is the huge collection of documents, manuscripts and treasures of archives, which is being utilized by many scholars as well as amateurs around the world as references to refer to learn about early scientific discoveries and much more.  


Building on the huge success of the 1st and 2nd International Conferences on Arabs’ and Muslims’ History of Sciences, which were held in 2008 and 2014 at the University of Sharjah under the patronage of His Highness, Shaykh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohamed Alqassmi Member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates Ruler of Sharjah President of the University of Sharjah, the Sharjah International Foundation for Arabs’ and Muslims’ History of Sciences was formed as an outcome of the two conferences. The primary mission of the foundation is to preserve, publish, and promote early and recent scientific advances and discoveries of scholars in the Arab and Muslim world. To fulfill this mission, the Foundation is organizing the 3rd International Conference on Arabs’ and Muslims’ History of Sciences (ICHS17) on December 5-7, 2017 at the University of Sharjah, UAE.
