Discover new opportunities with the Advances in Multi-Functional Materials Symposium and NTC Forum. Find out about the latest and greatest technologies in multi-functional materials, with sessions concentrating on nanotechnologies, healthcare, protection, and performance materials. The symposium, sponsored by AATCC's Materials interest group, will take place September 12-14 at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville, S.C.

The National Textile Center (NTC) Forum will be held in conjunction with the program, so that attendees can speak directly with leading university researchers about cutting-edge investigations of fibrous materials.
