Unfolding the Future is the moto of the 2021 edition of the Conference that will be held ONLINE, on the 5th to the 9th September 2021.

Recognized as a reference among the textile scientific community, the AUTEX conferences gather every year a large number of researchers that share their ideas and achievements in various research and educational projects.

At the beginning of this new decade, very important challenges will be faced concerning the sustainability of our planet, that directly impact the textile and fashion business. The Autex2021 Conference will be the right place to unveil and show the novel approaches, concerning materials, technologies and business models, that are being thought and developed.

Your contribution will be highly important!

Looking forward to welcome you ONLINE in September 2021.
