Colloquia / Symposia



The next AACHEN-DRESDEN-DENKENDORF INTERNATIONAL TEXTILE CONFERENCE will take place in Stuttgart on November 30 – December 1, 2017. Now the organizers are calling for papers for experts from the fields of Materials, Chemistry, Finishing & Functionalization, and Machines, Processes & Composites. The deadline for the submission of abstracts for oral presentations is March 31, 2017 and the deadline for poster presentations the August 31, 2017.
With the partner country USA, ADD ITC continues their tradition of offering a platform for new research co-operations and networks beyond Germany by involving annually alternating partner countries.

Aachen, Dresden and Denkendorf, together, lead the International Textile Conference into the Future

Since 2007 the textile research institutes of the regions of Aachen and Dresden have jointly organized the Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference. Boasting over 700 participants most recently, this conference counts as one of the most important textile conference in Europe. Since 2016, the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research, Denkendorf (DITF) is also a co-organizer.

Thus, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference will take place on a yearly alternating basis at one of the three sites. Parallel to the International Textile Conference, the organizers respectively launch the German Textile Colloquium as a national pendant with changing special themes in the spring.
