Systex, organisers of the Smart Textiles Salon (STS) say it is an innovative exhibition concept. "It combines the transfer of theory through a presentation of various exposés from the field of Smart Textiles as well as hands-on practical insight through demonstration of the prototypes' working principle."

"The participant can experience the inventions on three different levels: listening to the information given by the presenter, seeing the prototype working and trying out the prototype personally," says Systex.

Approximately, 20 prototypes were chosen for display at the Smart Textiles Salon 2011 which was held in Ghent, Belgium in April this year. All prototypes were shown to the audience in 10 to 15 minute presentations following a preset programme.

One of the presenters of the Smart Textiles Salon was the winner of the SYSTEX Student Award 2010, Kunal Mankodiya (Institute for Signal Processing, University of Luebeck, DE). Mr. Mankodiya won the SYSTEX Student Award 2010 for his outstanding work in the field of Multimodal Biosignal Monitoring.

Through this award, Systex wants to raise students' interest in intelligent textiles. "Their work contributes to further scientific and technological developments, and being our future employees their drive will push our sector forward," the organisation says.
