The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) will honor the world's top textile scientists next month, March 10-12, during AATCC's 2009 International Conference (IC) in Myrtle Beach, S.C., USA, at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. The awards will be presented at the association's Conference Awards Luncheon on Thursday, March 12.

The article published January 2007, “Describing Color Differences," written by Carol Tomasino Revels was selected as the best paper published in AATCC Review in 2007. A report on “Capillary Channel Polymer Fibers as Structural Templates for Ligament Regeneration," written by Philip J. Brown, Kristofer D. Sinclair, and Charles Kenneth (Ken) Webb, and published December 2008, has been selected as the best paper published in the peer reviewed journal of the AATCC Review in 2008.

The authors will be honored for their contributions to textile literature with The J. William Weaver Paper of the Year Award, a framed certificate signed by the president of AATCC and the chair of the Publications Committee. The Weaver award will be presented to both the 2007 and 2008 winners at the AATCC International Conference.

Revels holds a BS in textile chemistry and a Masters degree in Textiles from North Carolina State University. She is currently the director for global color services for Gap, Inc. Revels joined AATCC as a student in 1985. She served as chair of the Color Measurement Test Methods Committee, and is currently chair of the Color Guidebook subcommittee.

Brown holds a BSc Hons in Textile Chemistry and a PhD from the University of Leeds. He is currently an associate professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson University. Brown joined AATCC in 2002. He has served as vice-chair and is the current chair of the Materials Interest Group. He is also a member of the Fiber Society. Brown has published four books and monographs, and 20 peer-reviewed papers.

Webb holds a BS in Agricultural and Biological Engineering from Clemson University and a PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Utah. He is currently an assistant professor at the department of Bioengineering at Clemson University. Webb is a member of the Society for Biomaterials. He has published 18 peer-reviewed papers.

Sinclair holds a BS from the University of South Carolina. He is currently engaged as a graduate student research assistant at Clemson University. Sinclair joined AATCC in 2006, and is also a member of the Society for Biomaterials. He has published two peer-reviewed papers, both in AATCC Review.

In February 1979, the AATCC established an award for the best peer- reviewed paper published annually in the Textile Chemist and Colorist (now AATCC Review). In 1990, the award was named for J. William Weaver (1916-1990), who was chair of the Textile Chemist and Colorist Editorial Board at the time of his death.
