Organised event details

Wearable futures conference 2012
This event will bring together academic, industry and user group communities engaged in the hybrid area of Smart Clothes and Wearable Technology, building on the success of the Wearable Futures Conference, held at the University of Wales, Newport, in 2005. The conference is organised by the University of Wales, Newport, The University of Ulster, University of Salford, University of Brighton, and the University of Westminster and is supported by The Textile Institute. In particular this conference will promote a design-led approach to addressing a significant gap that has been identified in the area of design of contemporary clothing and textiles that may enhance the autonomy, independence, and sense of enjoyment and wellbeing of the Active Ageing. Findings from current research in ‘Design for Ageing Well’ will stimulate discussion with regard to new strategies for new routes to a rapidly growing market, with end users at the centre of all discussions. The conference welcomes industry involvement at keynote and delegate level, providing excellent opportunity for development of future collaborative research and knowledge transfer opportunities
