SESSION INDEX

Listed in alphabetical order.

NASA has developed flammability standards for the
use of materials in space programs. The selection
and the development of textiles suitable for space
applications are driven by these flammability
standards. These standards are unique as they
address the burning behavior of materials in various
atmospheres and gravitational environments.
Atmospheres with enriched with oxygen and reduced
pressure in micro-gravity present a great challenge
for textiles since few types of fibers are available.

	

Perpetually Cool: How Advances
in Cooling Textile Technology Can Help
Combat Global Warming
[Campfire | Advanced Textiles]	

Wednesday, Nov. 4 | Noon-12:30 pm	
Courtney Cruzan, Vice President Sourcing and
Product Development, brrrĀ°
The presenter will discuss recent advances in
thermoregulation technology in the textile industry
such as new dispersion techniques and the
application of micro minerals to create more surface
area that amplifies the cooling sensation and heat
transfer of fabrics.

[Industry Education | Shade and Weather Protection]

Design is the most important, misunderstood and
underestimated aspect of delivering a great and
long-lasting shade sail project. Rather than discuss
the subjective issues, such as colors and materials,
the focus of this interactive presentation will be on
what goes on the behind the scenes to ensure the
"right design" and how to avoid the pitfalls of
"wrong design."
Attendees will learn:
*	Form and function: what makes for great shade
sail design (shape, aerodynamics, structure, etc.).
*	Type of structure: single cable edge vs. fixed cable
edge or webbing edge, what are the differences
and how they influence design.
*	Electronic "tools" for designing shade sails:
explore new technologies available now for
designers (interactivity, multiple design options,
shade analysis/sun studies, inter-operable file
for sharing over many formats, etc.).

Smart Textiles for Healthcare and
Well-being: A Collaborative Approach
[Advanced Textiles Conference]	

These new technologies help people feel
more comfortable at work and at home, which
makes them less likely to lower thermostats on
energy-guzzling air conditioning systems. These
developments and the rising use of sustainably
sourced raw materials and recycled fabrics can
help reduce our carbon footprint and protect
the environment.

Tuesday, Nov. 10 | 10-11 am

Other simple tasks like air drying clothes and
being more cognizant of what we buy and how it
is made are also taking on increasing importance
in this era of intensifying global warming.

This session presents some of the material platforms
intertwined by craft and technology in smart textiles
for healthcare and wellbeing. It describes the benefit
of connectivity with international stakeholders
through networked activities, using collaborative
approaches to knowledge exchange and furthering
cross-cultural understanding of smart textiles and
Soft Systems.

Smart Textiles Standardization-
Active Illumination
[Advanced Textiles Conference]	

Thursday, Nov. 12 | 10-11 am	
Jan Beringer, Senior Scientific Expert,
Hohenstein Group	
Until now, no testing standards or EU certification
guidelines existed for personal protective
equipment (PPE) that signal the presence of a
person at night. This session lights the way to
the future of enhanced high-visibility PPE with an
update on the upcoming standard DIN SPEC 91418
(PAS), "Actively Illuminated High-Vis in addition
to EN ISO 20471 and EN 1150 resp. EN 17353 -
Requirements and Testing Methods."
