Smart Textiles Salon 2017

The 6th edition of the Smart Textiles Salon (STS2017) will take place on 18 October 2017, the last day of ITMC2017. STS2017 is also the final event of the SmartPro project.

The Smart Textiles Salon is an innovative exhibition concept, for it combines showcases in the field of Smart Textiles with hands-on practical information on the working principle of smart textile prototypes.

You may experience the inventions in three ways:

  • by attending the lectures,
  • by watching the prototype work
  • by trying out the prototype all by yourself.

STS2017 will inform you on existing prototypes and the possible application areas of smart textiles. About 20 prototypes will be chosen for display at the Smart Textiles Salon 2017. Each prototype will be shown to the audience.

The preliminary time schedule for STS2017 can be found on the STS website :

The Smart Textiles Salon is organised by the Centre for Textile Science and Engineering (Ghent University) and supported by Centexbel and the project SMARTPro.
