Leading-edge speakers will look at the future trends in engineered materials – from graphene and nanofibres to intelligent fabrics and wearable electronics – at INDA’s Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics Conference (RISE) and Nanofibers for the Third Millennium (N3M), which will take place from 9-12 February, in Miami, FL.

The final programme features a full lineup of speakers, special events, networking opportunities, tabletop exhibitors, and RISE Durable Product Award finalists.

Among the cutting-edge sessions will be presentations on game-changing methods being used to make graphene commercially economical that will be vital for manufacturers of nonwoven substrates, material suppliers, and end-product manufacturers to know, the Association reports.

Presentations

Other timely RISE sessions include presentations on market opportunities in the US 14 billion textile/stretchable wearable electronics market, materials for soft and wearable robotics, ecological textile finishing, and ceramic and metallic materials.

Attendees also will learn what Western companies need to know about intellectual property rights and innovation in China to protect ideas here and abroad. 

Technology and innovation

RISE is the only conference that looks ahead of the technology curve, the organiser believes. The event features top researchers, scientists, academia and thought leaders from around the world speaking on the latest advanced materials, processes, and technology.

It will bring together today’s most prescient leaders in materials research and innovative science as applied to engineered fabrics to share discoveries and developments that could impact the use of nonwovens in medical, energy, transportation, hygiene, filtration, and other markets.

The N3M symposium, exclusively on 12 February, highlights major nanofibre application areas and manufacturing processes, including air/liquid filtration, life sciences (wound care and tissue scaffolding), and energy storage (fuel cells and battery separators).
