Workshop on Smart Textiles, Wearables & Internet of Things

ss smart textiles

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. The rise of Smart Textile and Wearables represents a significant opportunity for manufacturers of advanced OE materials and devices to implement their innovations in textiles for fashion, architecture, sports, medical, protection, and safety. 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 and Wearables with a particular focus on the application of Organic Electronics in Textiles for fashion, architecture, automotives, medical textiles, special-purpose textiles, protection, etc. Furthermore, the various components like actuators, sensors, connections, energy storage and generation, as well as communication will be 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:

  • Novel concepts on fibres and nanomaterials (organic, polymer, inorganic) for Smart Textiles and Wearables
  • Advanced structures of Textiles and Wearables
  • Integration concepts of Organic Electronic devices in Smart Textiles
  • Manufacturing methods for Wearables (from lab to large scale) 
  • Surface functionalization of electronic textile materials and architectures
  • Wearable Technologies
  • Light Emitting Devices (OLED, Displays) for Smart Textiles
  • Energy Generation (Photovoltaics, Piezoelectricity)
  • Medical Textiles
  • Storage of Energy (Batteries, Capacitors)
  • Sensors, Transistors & Actuators
  • Internet of Things (IoT) for communication of Smart Wearable Technologies and Devices
