Workshop on Smart Textiles, Wearables & Internet of Things


Smart textiles and intelligent clothing are firmly established elements in today's electronic world. It is commonly understood, that this particular application field is important for the future of both industries: textiles and electronics. Succeeding in this highly multidisciplinary field, is the challenge research and industry is facing equally.

The Workshop on Smart Textiles, Wearable Technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) will give an overview on the current developments in the field of smart textiles with a particular focus on the application of organic electronics in textiles for fashion, architecture, automotives, medical textiles, special-purpose textiles, etc. Based on the general outline of a so-called smart textiles system the various components like actuators, sensors, connections, energy storage and generation, as well as communication are addressed. Top-notch research in materials and technologies for achieving the components' functions will be presented, by addressing the different components per application area.

Workshop topics include:

  • Nanomaterials (organic, polymer, inorganic, fibers) for Smart Textiles
  • Integration of Organic Electronic devices in textiles
  • Wearable technologies (generation of electricity, displays, sensing, medical, etc.)
  • Internet of Things (IoT) for communication of Smart Wearable Technologies and Devices
  • Light emitting devices (OLED, Displays) for Smart Textiles
  • Energy Generation (Photovoltaics, Piezoelectricity)
  • Storage of Energy (Batteries, Capacitors)
  • Sensors, Transistors & Actuators
