The goal of this program is to provide a forum in which students can present and discuss their work during its early stages, meet some of their peers who have related interests, and introduce themselves to more senior members of the field. The program is open to all graduate students. Students are requested to honor the spirit of the program by submitting only work for which they are primary investigators.
Five students will be selected by a panel of industry experts to present their research to an audience of technical textile suppliers and end-product manufacturers. This will offer the audience the opportunity to hear first-hand the latest research findings in academia and allows these future leaders to engage the industry.
