The organizers of the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference are happy to once again invite you to an inspiring program, for the first time comprised of four parallel sections with a special focus on industrial topics and top-class national and international contributors from industry and research.
Hence, we aim at further establishing this conference as most important meeting ground for exchange between executive management, experts & young professionals from industry and science.
With this year‘s partner country Great Britain, we once more offer you a platform to explore opportunities for research co-operations and networks outside of Germany.
As a special highlight, we would like to recommend the following plenary talks and keynote presentations:
