'Smart Textiles - Technology and Design', Ambience theme
Feb '08
The first international scientific conference in the Ambience series was held in Tampere, Finland in 2005. The second Ambience conference will now be held at the University College of Borås, Sweden on June 2-3, 2008.

The theme for the 2008 conference is “Smart Textiles – Technology and Design”. We see the conference as a place where design and technology communities come together to discuss and share ideas on the next generations of high-tech textile techniques and products; a place where technology and design can meet and interact, to inform each other, and to bring new ideas back to your own community.

The main topics of the conference are: Smart Clothing, Smart Textiles Design, Technical Textiles, Automotive Textiles, Medical Textiles, Sensors & Fibers.

We welcome submissions that focus on these topics from the perspective of technology as well as from the perspective of design.

Keynote speakers from both academia and industry will introduce discussions about, and critical reflections on, future development of textile technology and design.

The conference is organized by The University College of Borås in cooperation with Tampere University of Technology and IFP Research AB and is a part of the Smart Textiles Initiative.
