Smart Fabrics Summit 2020 has added new speakers to present at the 2020 summit, which will be held on April 16-17, 2020, in Washington D.C. The summit provides a forum for professionals in the industrial textiles industry to understand how to bring a smart product to market. The summit is organised in partnership with the department of commerce.

The first speaker is Jesse Jur, associate professor of textile engineering, chemistry, and science at North Carolina State University. Jur has spent his career researching the interfaces of technologies: from semiconductor device development to textile designs. His research focuses on integration of systems electronics into wearable platforms for energy harvesting, monitoring of a person’s physiological state and improving user’s comfort. He is the technology thrust leader for ‘Wearability and Data’ for ASSIST (Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and Technologies), a National Science Foundation Nanosystems Engineering Research Center (NERC). He is also the co-director of the textile engineering and textile technology engineering design programme in the Wilson College of Textiles, an intensive course that interfaces students and industry for innovative product development, according to a press release on the summit.

Stephanie Rodgers, the director of advanced product development, Apex Mills, will also speak at the summit. Rodgers has been at the forefront of textile and component product engineering and development for the automotive sector with General Motors, Magna International, Fisker Automotive, and newly emerging electric vehicle companies for the majority of her career. She also was the first textile engineer at Microsoft as an Xbox and Surface materials engineers to design and develop with textiles.

The list of speakers finalised so far includes Jacqueline Campbell, senior textile technologist, directorate for engineering sciences, CPSC; Chris Jorgensen, director technology transfer, IPC; Paige Mullis, director, concept development-advanced projects, Glen Raven; Kelly Scanlon EHS policy and research director, IPC; and Jordan Schindler founder/CEO, Nufabrx.
