We are pleased to announce that the final conference programme has been completed and is now posted in the AUTEX 2016 Conference programme.



Dear colleague,

welcome to the official website of the 16th World Textile Conference Autex 2016, which will be held from 8–10 June 2016 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The conference will be organised by the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, Department of Textiles, Graphic Arts and Design. It is our great honour and responsibility to host the AUTEX 2016 Conference.


The AUTEX Conference is one of the most important scientific events in the field of textiles aimed to bring together leading researchers, experts, students and people from the industry from all over the world to share their knowledge and exchange scientific ideas.


The Organising and Scientific Committees would like to highlight the importance of the AUTEX Conference as a textile platform offering the participants to present and discuss the most recent research investigations, new perspectives and future directions. Many supporting social events enriching the scientific programme will be organised as well.


Finally, yet importantly, the AUTEX 2016 Conference will take place in Ljubljana, the geographical, cultural, scientific, economic and political centre of Slovenia. It is a picturesque city with a long history and richness of cultural attractions. The city is announced as the European Green Capital 2016. Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain meets the Karst. This green country is home to sincere, hospitable people of great diligence. Hence, please come and visit us.


We kindly ask you to inform your colleagues and spread the information about the conference among your contacts.


We look forward to seeing you in Ljubljana next June!
