Mar '10
TCL2010, the original and most-followed international conference on the coating and laminating of textiles, will be held on 4-5 November 2010 in Cannes, France (a week earlier than previously announced).

International experts will discuss topics including:
• developments in coating and laminating technology
• coating materials
• end-use applications
• testing

Subjects for consideration will include the latest updates on: coatings for flame retardancy, heat resistance, water repellency, weather resistance, and ballistic protection; technologies such as plasma technology, UV curing, infrared treatment and hotmelt systems; and coating materials including nanocoatings, ceramic coatings, silicone coatings and hotmelt coatings, along with smart/intelligent coatings and laminates.

Call for papers issued
Although the core of the programme will be presentations by invited experts, in order to give an opportunity for anyone with exciting and relevant ideas to present to a high-level international audience, a call for papers is being issued for contributions with emphasis on work that will impact the industry, short term as well as the future.

Background
TCL2010 is the renewal of the original and long running International TCL conferences organized and run yearly by Bill Smith of Industrial Textile Associates, USA. TCL was begun in 1990 and alternated between the US and Europe. We are pleased to announce that TCL2010 is sponsored with ITA by Technical Textiles International and International Newsletters Ltd of the UK.

Last presented in Europe in 2007 in Barcelona, this newly sponsored event will feature international speakers and topics of wide interest to the industry. In Cannes, there is easy access from all areas of Europe and the world, and it has the potential for a new audience and increased exposure for our industry. A limited number of table-top displays will be available as well for companies to present their sales message.

Programme
The conference theme will be “An Industry Moving Forward - Focus on the future”. Four sessions will look in detail at: The State of the Industry: talks focused on an overview of the industry covering the depth of the industry, the economic outlook, global developments that will affect the industry, and environmental and regulatory issues.

Techniques and Materials: presentations that focus on machinery and techniques such as new, more efficient production equipment, adhesive/bonding systems, developments in polymers, plasma and other treatments, and techniques for extreme properties.

Technology for Growth: topics including nanotechnology, antimicrobial/antibacterial, smart coatings, green technology for coating and laminating, conducting materials, developments in surface modifications, self decontaminating, self-repair, treatments for improved properties, etc.

Future Opportunities: focusing on developing markets and applications such as solar/thermal, fuel cells, medical, leisure, commercial, and extreme materials.
