Fiber Research for Tomorrow's Applications


Though textile history is millennia-old, the potential for innovative products has hardly been exhausted. High-tech textiles rely on the continuous development of new fiber raw materials and processing techniques.

For textiles to remain high value-added products, steady research efforts are needed, as well as a strong cooperation between science and manufacturing.

The goal of this conference is to provide an exchange platform for chemists, physicists and engineers with interests in the field of fiber science and technology. Its further intention is to offer industry an insight into current research topics relevant for tomorrow's applications.

Around 70 oral presentations by polymer and fiber scientists from all over the world are expected, framed by key note speeches held by outstanding researchers in the field of fiber science.

The language of the conference is English.
