Professor Li Yi from the University of Manchester, the founding chairman of TBIS and chairman of the International Academic Committee of TBIS 2022, outlined the main contents of this conference:
Over the three days, there was a strong and lively academic atmosphere.
On the first morning of the conference (6th September), nine plenary speakers gave their presentation on the theme topic of “Advanced Materials and Applications” as well as “Wearable Technology and Digital health”. World-renowned experts and academics from China, Czech, German, UK, Japan and USA presented their innovative and interdisciplinary research on advanced textile materials and engineering, electrical engineering, bioengineering and information technology, wearable technology, big data, and AI cloud computation. The three afternoon sessions included medal lectures and oral presentations on topics related to “e-Textile Materials and Wearables”, and “Textile Industry and Market”.
The conference lasted until 23:00pm Beijing time, as session chairs and participants were actively engaged in their presentations and lively discussions. Experts and scholars spoke highly of the strong academic atmosphere and the high standard of academic communication on addressing key challenges in the society, and how to confront these challenges with textile driven innovations.
On the second day of the conference (September 7th), 8 plenary speakers gave presentations on the themed topic of: “Textile Digitalization and Sustainability” as well as “Textile Functionality. World-renowned experts and scholars from France, China, Poland, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, India, and the USA reported their innovative and interdisciplinary research in advanced textile materials, electrical engineering, blockchain, AI and information technology.
The 3 afternoon sessions included “Textile Materials and Engineering”, “Hybrid Materials for Hierarchal Structures (HYHI)”, and “Textile Circularity and Sustainability (TCS)”.
More than 20 academics, experts and company representatives from Europe, Asia, America and China participated in the TCS workshop. Together they discussed the major challenges and opportunities for cooperation in the development of a traceable international fashion supply chain, and the mechanisms for setting international standards for the certification and regulation of fashion sustainability.
The workshop reviewed the initiative of the EU's HORIZON research strategies, including the 2021-2022 and 2023-2024 research funding programs for technological innovation in digital materials engineering, international cooperation policies, and the eligibility of participating countries and regions. The directions and technical routes for 2023-2024 were also explored, followed by a discussion on the methods of forming international collaborative project teams based on each workshop representative’s interests in relation to the relevant research project tender guidelines.
On the morning of the third day (8 September), nine experts delivered plenary speeches on the topic of “Textile Biomedical Engineering” and “Wearable Technologies for Digital Health”. World-renowned experts and academics from the UK, China, Croatia, South Korea and the USA presented their innovative and interdisciplinary research on advanced textile materials, textile biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, AI and information technology and digital health.
The two afternoon sessions included “Clothing Engineering” and “Intelligent Materials and Digital Health (IMDH)” workshop. More than 20 academics, experts and company representatives from Europe, Asia, the Americas and China participated in the International Symposium on Intelligent Materials and Digital Health (IMDH).
They discussed the major challenges and cooperation opportunities for the sustainable development of the international industry supply chain of smart materials and digital health, the roadmap for the development of an international industry supply chain and standards for smart materials and digital health and explored the opportunities and mechanisms for international cooperation. The workshop reviewed and discussed the release of the European Union's HORIZON research strategies, including the 2021-2022 and 2023-2024 research funding programs in the areas of digital materials engineering technology innovation and health, international cooperation policies, and the eligibility of participating countries and regions. The directions and technical routes for 2023-2024 were also explored, followed by a discussion on the methods of forming international collaborative project teams based on each workshop representative’s interests in relation to the relevant research project tender guidelines.
Many specialists, universities and companies actively participated in the formation of international project teams. Up to 24:00 pmBeijing time, the session chairs and participants were still presenting and engaging in lively discussions.
