3rd Aachen-Dresden Conference to be held in November

22
Jul '09
500 participants attended the first Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference in Aachen in 2007. 600 delegates from research and industry took part last year in Dresden.

The third Aachen-Dresden Conference in Aachen on November 26-27, 2009 will be opened by Christa Thoben, the Minster of Economic Affairs and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The organizers do not believe that there will be 700 participants to welcome.

According to Professor Martin Moeller, director of DWI at RWTH Aachen University, the current economic situation reminds us that growth eventually meets a limit, and is subject to up- and downturns, or needs a re-orientation. “Sustainability” as a concept for development thus gains further importance.

With this focus, this year's Aachen-Dresden Conference will point out the necessity for a paradigm change: from a mere planning and controlling of productivity towards the design of products and processes according to a responsible use of resources.

Five plenary talks and 34 technical contributions will present thought-provoking impulses and examples for successful adjustments in textile chemistry, materials design, textile technology and engineering. Special attention will be paid to developments in The Netherlands and Belgium.

Topics:
- Sustainable creation of value in view of technology, new materials & functionalization
- Apparel and ready-made manufacturing
- Textile machinery – saving of energy and resources

- Werner Zittel, Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik: Oil resources – how much longer will they last?
