ECO - STEPS 2009 will be organized by School Of Garment, Apparel and Fashion Technology, Sona College of Technology. It is a National Conference on Developments in ECO-Smart Textile Processes and Products which will take place on Aug 13-14th at Sona Nagar, TPT Road, Salem - 636 005. Tamilnadu, India.

The impact of human activity on the environment is assuming increasing significance with every passing day. With specific regard to textiles, awareness about the environment and environment-friendly textile products and processes is on the increase. But there is much to be done yet.

Conferences on the initiatives taken by the textile industry, textile research organisations and quasi-textile organisations and institutions to counter these effects will heighten awareness about eco-friendly textile products and processes, and generate further research activity towards preserving an ecological balance on earth. It is thus that the national-level conference entitled ECO-STEPS 2009 is being organised.

The primary strategy of the conference is thus to facilitate a consolidation of the diverse happenings, findings and developments in this area at a common forum. A variety of textile professionals from the industry and academia alike are expected to converge here to share information, research findings and experiences on a host of aspects pertaining to eco-friendly textile processes and products.

The conference will encompass the following important events:

- Keynote presentations on specific topics in both of these areas by eminent speakers in different walks of the textile profession
- Research / review papers by technocrats and academia in these areas
- An exhibition of eco-friendly processes and products
