TBIS 2016 – Textile Bioengineering and Informatics Symposium

We warmly welcome all of you to Melbourne for the TBIS-APCC 2016 – the 9th Textile Bioengineering and Informatics Symposium combined with the 6th Asian Protective Clothing Conference.TBIS-APCC 2016

To held 12th – 15th July 2016, the conference is hosted by RMIT University in Melbourne, the “world’s most livable city”, internationally famous for its cuisine, culture, sports and beautiful public parks and gardens.

The TBIS conference focuses on all aspects of science and technology in bioengineering of materials, fibers and textiles, and the study of how fibers, textiles and clothing influence human biology, medicine, behavior and health, as well as human living environments. 

The textile industry in Australia has been changing in recent years.  While traditional manufacturing has moved offshore, the industry is concentrating on producing new materials and designs for protective, sports, medical and smart textiles.  Your conference host, RMIT University’s School of Fashion and Textiles is the only one -stop education, training and research institute for the entire supply chain of textile and fashion industry in Australia.

The Centre for Advanced Materials and Performance Textiles (CAMPT) within the RMIT University School of Fashion and Textiles is involved in designing and engineering new products for various textile applications using its state-of-the-art research and training facilities. CAMPT has strong collaborative links with Australia’s other leading materials research organisations – Deakin University, CSIRO, Australian Wool Innovation and Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC) – and consistently achieves internationally acclaimed research outcomes.

We invite you to attend the TBIS-APCC 2016 Conference and contribute to a memorable event in Melbourne!
