The International Conference on Developing Synergies Between Islam, Science, & Technology held on 1-2 October, 2014 at the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS) in Kuala Lumpur, featured 40 speakers across diverse fields detailing issues revolving around Islamic discourse and its relationship with science and technology in the world today. The conference was graced by former Malaysian Prime Minister and Chairman of IAIS, YABhg Tun Abdullah Bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, who provided a motivating Opening Address. Many of the speakers – some veterans to the conversation, such as Emeritus Professor Datuk Osman Bakar (Director and Chair SOASCIS, Brunei Darussalam) and Professor Mehdi Golshani (Sharif University of Technology, Iran) – offered several valuable solutions drawing extensively from their educational and activist backgrounds in the fields of environment, education, and policy reform.
