Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference 2023
November 30 - December 1, 2023, Dresden
Partner country: India
Platform and most important meeting ground for exchange between executive management, experts & young professionals from industry and science
Aachen, Dresden und Denkendorf forming the 'textile triangle' of the future– creating textile future together
The regions of Aachen, Dresden and Denkendorf form a triangle for textile research and innovation. The locations jointly organize the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference, which is one of the most important textile conferences in Europe with regularly more than 600 participants from industry and academic research.
ADD-ITC as an on-site event at International Congress Center Dresden
The ADD-ITC 2023 will hold on-site at International Congress Center Dresden. We are extremely looking forward to the personal exchange with you and the special atmosphere of a face-to-face event. We invite you to visit the ADD-ITC as a participant, speaker or with your exhibition booth and to immerse yourself in the fascination of the textile future on site.
The conference program 2023 includes plenary lectures and themed sessions in the areas of
- German-India Partnerships
- Trends in the Textile Production
- Sustainable Polymer Materials and Functionalization
- Protective & Functional Textiles
- Fiber-reinforced Materials & Composites
- Interactive Fiber Rubber Composites
- Tactile Internet
- Technology Transfer "From Idea to Practice"
- Textile Developments by Start-ups
The textile industry of the future is emission-free, digital and uses sustainable, recyclable raw materials, its supply chains are secure and transparent, and it responds flexibly to market changes through regional on-demand manufacturing. In the present, these megatrends are being worked out at full speed in research and development. Results of this work will be showcased at ADD-ITC 2023 in plenary and keynote presentations as well as expert lectures and poster contributions.

The demonstrator “Negative Latency” is showcasing the potential of machine learning in preemptively deciphering human intent via wearable sensors. By harnessing this predictive capacity, we envision a transformative impact on networking, effectively mitigating latency stemming from message transmission, computation, and propagation. Our demo employs a sensor-equipped glove, enabling anticipatory actions. Remarkably, the system forecasts the object about to be touched – whether it's a cup, plate, or glass – before physical contact occurs.

Ökodesign World Café
As part of the project "The new Ecodesign Regulation: Requirements for the ecodesign of textiles and the possible transfer to an ecodesign label", we would like to welcome you to our World Café during the breaks of the conference.
On behalf of the German Federal Environment Agency, the research consortium Öko-Institut e.V., Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences and Hof University of Applied Sciences, led by the Öko-Institut, is working on a research project funded by the BMUV to develop possible requirements for the ecodesign of textiles.
Which criteria should be considered in the product aspect of durability? How can recyclability be assessed despite the still limited recycling processes?
We would like to discuss these and other questions with you in our World Café.
