Conference “Competitiveness and Technological Innovation in the Textile Sector” with a session on Nanotechnology and Bionanotechnology applied to Textiles

In November 2008, the city of Alcoy will host the 2nd International Congress “Competitiveness and Technological Innovation in the Textile Sector”, which will take place on the 5th and 6th of November, 2008 at AITEX´s headquarters.

This 2nd International Congress aims to be a forum for debate and presentation of the latest innovations in the textile sector in different areas and disciplines of R&D in applied technologies. This is considered to be a unique opportunity to establish new contacts on an international level and exchange experiences on the state of the art and future challenges that our sector will face.

The outstanding results obtained from the first edition serve as a precedent, when more than a hundred companies within the sector attended. We hope to welcome many more to the congress this year; mainly technicians and company owners, technologists and researchers from any country. This justifies the need to select the speakers who will bring to the congress innovative and technically valuable knowledge that can be applied to the sector. We already have recognised and prestigious researchers and technicians who will share with us practical case histories during the congress.

Among the different innovations that this second edition will present is simultaneous translation in two languages (Spanish-English) that we hope will favour an international participation at the event.

Call for Papers
Papers and types of presentations which the 2nd International Congress will focus on will be divided into two days. The first day will be dedicated to presentations on those aspects, practical cases and projects related to competitiveness in small and medium companies,, and will encompass strategies in the fields of marketing, communication, market studies and distribution. The second day will be turned over to more technical aspects and the latest advances in innovation and R+D on an international scale related to the most important nanotechnologies and biotechnologies as applied to the textile sector, as well as the latest developments in textiles and intelligent and functional materials.

The styles of presentations have been divided into the following:

TYPE I: 25 min (approximately) oral presentation.
TYPE II: Poster display.
