IPC is now accepting abstracts for IPC E-Textiles 2023, the international conference for the e-textiles industry, to be held live and in-person on Monday, January 23, 2023, in San Diego, California, in conjunction with IPC APEX EXPO 2023, the industry’s premier conference and exhibition for the electronics industry.

IPC E-Textiles 2023 is a multidisciplinary technical conference, providing an excellent opportunity for the e-textiles industry to learn, network, and collaborate on this vastly expanding technology space. By aligning IPC E-Textiles 2023 with IPC APEX EXPO, speakers and attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in IPC E-Textiles Committee standards meetings and take advantage of all events and education offered during IPC APEX EXPO.

IPC invites innovators and technologists from the e-textiles supply chain and academia to submit an abstract for a technical presentation during the conference. The IPC E-Textiles 2023 Program Committee seeks abstracts in the following topic areas:

  • E-Textiles Success Stories
  • Reliability and Standards
  • Economic and Business Aspects
  • Futuristic Thinking

Within these main topic areas, abstracts can focus on validation of product, washability, design, supply chain issues, innovations in materials, production, software and programming, and sustainability.

A 250-word technical conference abstract should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due August 1, 2022. To submit an abstract or course proposal, visit ipc.org/ipc-e-textiles-2023.

IPC also announces the IPC E-Textiles 2023 Program Committee, which will shape the technical deliverables and format for this exciting and educational event:
