Zewail City for Science and Technology will host the thirty-seventh conference of the Arab Organization for Admissions and Registration Officers in Universities in the Arab Countries from the 1st to the 5th of April, 2018.
The conference is held annually at one of the member universities of the Organization. The Arab Organization for Admissions and Registration is a non-profit professional educational organization whose main objective is to raise the level of admissions and registration systems in Arab universities and to contribute to the development of university education and institutions, and exchange experiences in these areas in order to further develop these university systems.
The first conference of the organization was held at Kuwait University in 1976. Kuwait University remained the headquarter until the sixth conference, which was held at Yarmouk University in Jordan. The headquarter was transferred to the University of Jordan in Amman until the 14th Conference, which was held in 1993 in the United Arab Emirates. The headquarter of the Organization returned to Kuwait University that year.
Zewail Science and Technology is an independent, non-profit research educational institution. The city was conceived in 1999 and the foundation stone was laid on January 1, 2000. After facing many obstacles in the establishment of the city, the 25th of January, 2011 revolution brought new spirit through a ministerial decision to revive the project on 11 May, 2011.
The 37th conference brings together the heads of faculty and administrators in a large number of Arab universities and hosts ambassadors and representatives of the participating countries. It is expected that more than 120 Arab universities from Egypt and various Arab countries will participate. The city and the university welcome the visitors of these universities – whether they be members or non-members of the organization – together for the renaissance of university admissions, registration, and student affairs in the Arab countries.
The conference provides the opportunity to meet experts, consultants, administrators, and directors of admission and registration in universities throughout the Arab world. Participants will exchange experiences and knowledge in the field of admission and registration, focusing on the latest uses of technology in these fields.
This year, the conference will be held under the slogan of Acceptance and Registration: Between Globalization and National Methodologies in Universities in Arab Countries – Innovation, Development and Community Service. The following topics will be discussed:
– The first topic: Innovation in admission and registration systems and mechanisms (Experiences of Arab and international universities).
