Conference To Take Place In India

April 2, 2008

The event, scheduled for July 14-16, 2008, is being sponsored by several leading organizations.

The fifth edition of the ATNT international conference (Advances in Textiles, Nonwoven and Technical Textiles 2008) is being organized by Texas Tech University in collaboration with Avinashilingam University for Women in Coimbatore, India. The event, scheduled for July 14-16, 2008, is being sponsored by several leading organizations, such as INDA, TAPPI (Nonwovens Division), IFAI (Safety and Protective Products Division) and Society of Dyers and Colorists (SDC-India).

“The theme and venue of the international conference is timely as India offers enormous potential for growth in technical textiles,” stated Seshadri Ramkumar, organizing secretary for the event. He added that a recent study by researchers at Nonwoven and Advanced Materials Laboratory at Texas Tech University shows that the technical textile industry’s growth in India will be 8-9% for the next three to five years.
“As the industry is growing with support from both public and private sectors, it is extremely essential to bring leading scientists and industrialists from many parts of the world to one platform,” said Dr. Ramkumar. ATNT 2008 will focus on cutting-edge research and marketing papers spanning the entire segment of the textile industry from fibers, finishes, nonwovens and technical textiles to marketing and economics.

A call for papers has been extended and brief abstracts should be sent by April 30, 2008. Table-top presentations and sponsoring opportunities are also available. More information on this conference can be obtained at
