ATME-I to incorporate with Techtextil North America Symposium
Jun '11
The ninth edition of the highly acclaimed Techtextil North America Symposium will be held April 24 – 26, 2012 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

We are pleased to announce that in 2012, ATME-I (American Textile Machinery Exhibition-International) will be incorporated into Techtextil North America. Also in 2012, Texprocess Americas (formerly SPESA Expo) will co-locate with Techtextil North America in adjacent halls providing tremendous value for textile and sewn products industry professionals at all levels of the textile and sewn products manufacturing and application supply chains. The co-location means that attendees will be able to move freely between the individual shows and benefit from the industry-leading educational and networking seminars and special events all in the same venue.

This co-location will offer speakers a potentially new audience and exposure to new industries. As always, the timing of the 2012 edition will be such that participants will have ample time to walk the exhibition floor. Multi-track sessions will feature technical and application specific presentations relevant to the industry. Previous Techtextil North America Symposiums have received high praise and acclaim proving once again that Techtextil North America is THE “must attend”, most comprehensive event for the technical textile industry.

Papers are especially solicited in the following areas, with emphasis on work that will impact the industry in the short term as well as in the future:

1) Extreme fibers, fabrics, materials and technology for special applications
2) Composites – involving high performance fibers/fabrics
3) New materials and new standards for safety and protection
4) Automotive, aerospace, transportation applications
5) Smart/intelligent coatings, nonwovens, and other materials
6) Technical nonwovens
7) Innovative materials – what, when, and how technical textiles will impact the industry
8) Medical – special applications
9) Green technology involving technical textiles
10) Packaging with technical textiles

Consideration will be given preference to those papers relating to:

1) New development and technology in all fiber/fabric forms
2) Innovations in materials, processes, or manufacturing techniques
3) Developing products and applications for technical textiles
4) Technical textiles research that may impact the industry
5) Markets (existing or emerging), industry issues (trade and others), trends, etc.
6) Relevance to practical applications and short to medium term adoption

Selection of the papers to be presented will be based on abstracts of 300-500 words. Authors should emphasize new and significant findings/developments.
