Australia's Deakin University and Technical Textiles and NonWovens Association will host the 13th Asian Textile Conference on behalf of the Federation of Asian Professional Textile Associations (FAPTA).

The Asian Textile Conference (ATC) is one of the world-leading conferences in the textile field and takes place biannually at Asian countries in turn. ATC-13 will be held from 3 to 6 November 2015 in the Australian coastal city of Geelong, Victoria.

The Call for Papers for this conference is now open. Researchers from academia and industry are invited to submit abstracts on papers and / or posters through the conference website

“It is an honour for Australia to host this important conference for the advancement of fibres and textiles in the many fields of use today and applications to meet future needs of society,” says Professor Xungai Wang, Director of the Australian Future Fibres Research and Innovation Centre (AFFRIC) and Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM) at Deakin University, and Academic Chair of the conference organising committee.

“ATC-13 will provide global scientists and researchers in all textile fields with the platform to share new knowledge, set directions and goals for the progress of textile science and engineering for the next decade,” says Professor Wang.

TTNA Executive Manager, Ms Kerryn Caulfield said: “Textiles play vital roles in industry and every aspect of people’s daily lives. Whether derived from natural or man-made fibres, interdisciplinary collaboration is the key solution for the development of innovative high performance textiles and the future growth of the industry.”

The Call for Papers is scheduled to close on 15 April 2015.
