German axis to lead International Textile Conference
May '15
Since 2007 the textile research institutes of the regions of Aachen and Dresden in Germany have jointly organized the Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference. Boasting over 700 participants most recently, this conference counts as one of the most important textile conference in Europe., scientific research major DWI—Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials said in a statement.

Starting in 2016, the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research, Denkendorf (DITF) will also be a co-organizer. The Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference will take place on a yearly alternating basis at one of the three sites. Parallel to the International Textile Conference, the organizers will respectively launch the German Textile Colloquium as a national pendant with changing special themes in the spring.

Nine years after the regional textile conferences in Aachen and Dresden were fused to the ‘Aachen-Dresden’ conference, the organizers have now widened their national base by extending the existing axis straight through Germany to create the triangle Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf.

The German Textile Colloquium will be held in Denkendorf in the spring of 2016. Then, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference will take place in Dresden in late November 2016. Thereafter in 2017, the sites Aachen (German Textile Colloquium) and Stuttgart/Denkendorf (International Textile Conference) will host the events.

Professor Dr. Martin Möller of the DWI in Aachen explains, “Within the past decades, the wide assortment of themes in the field of textiles has clearly expanded, and the circle of people interested in textiles has long grown beyond its classical borders. This is true especially for the field of technical textiles. It is exactly this aspect that we wish to better address by means of the widened base.”

The two-day conferences are directed to experts from the fields of materials science, chemistry, refining and functionalization as well as mechanical engineering, process engineering and composites.

Professor Dr Chokri Cherif of the Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology at TU Dresden of Dresden applauds the “spreading south” into the Denkendorf region: “With this milestone, we are creating important prerequisites for the further internationalization of our conference. In particular, we are pleased to make an important contribution towards pooling the German conference resources. Thus, we can truly meet the wishes of the industry and expert associations expressed over many years.” (SH)
