• Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference 2018 _ Turning Fibers into Value

    29 - 30 October 2018

    Aachen, Dresden and Denkendorf, together, are forming the 'textile triangle' of the future

    Boasting over 600 participants most recently, this conference counts as one of the most important textile conferences in Europe. Starting in 2016, the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research, Denkendorf (DITF) are now also a co-organizer. Thus, the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference will take place on a yearly alternating basis at one of the three sites. Parallel to the International Textile Conference, the organizers respectively launch the German Textile Colloquium as a national equivalent with changing special themes in the spring.

  • TensiNet Symposium 2019 “Softening the Habitats: Sustainable Innovations in Minimal Mass Structures and Lightweight Architectures”

    3 - 5 June 2019

    The 6th International TensiNet Symposium “Softening the Habitats: Sustainable Innovations in Minimal Mass Structures and Lightweight Architectures” will take place from the 3th to the 5th of June 2019 at Politecnico di Milano, in Milan, Italy.

    The 2019 TensiNet Symposium (TS19) is organized and hosted by the TensiNet Association and in particular by Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) and Textile Hub, which is an interdepartmental research laboratory on textiles and polymers at PoliMi.

    The 2019 TensiNet edition will open a twofold reflection - by means of both the conference (TS19Conf) and exhibition (TS19Exhib)- on current innovations, trends and strategies in the field of lightweight membrane structures and mainly on the future of those technologies, which the TensiNet Association is interested in: tensile and pneumatic structures, textile architecture, membranes and foils, ultra-lightweight constructions and structural skins.

    The main topic are Soft Structures, Softening the Environment & Soft Skins.

  • ICSA2019 - The 4th International Conference on Structures and Architecture

    24 - 26 July 2019

    The aim of ICSA2019 is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering and is intended for an audience of researchers and practitioners world-wide with a background in architecture and in structural engineering.

    This is the world's leading and largest global conference bridging the gap between Structures and Architecture. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields.

    The conference will facilitate the meeting of international participants interested in the recent advances in the art, practice and theory of designing and building infrastructures in which the structural and architectonic values are consciously combined and the contribution of each other is mutually enhanced.

    It includes architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, construction industry persons, academics, researchers, students, product manufacturers, material suppliers, project managers and contract administrators, asset managers, government authorities of infrastructure development and others.
