cimtec Pietro Vincenzini - General Chair (cimtec) ongoing electronics, smart textiles, conferences, event
Intensive research carried out worldwide for creating higher forms of materials, structures and systems by providing them with “life” functions, resulted in a relatively high level of technology readiness with several applications now emerging, demonstrating that smart materials technologies have matured well beyond the conceptual stage. Widespread use of nanotechnology concepts and tools and availability of multiscale computational models coupled with the exponential growth of computing capability and the merging of materials science and engineering with biological information, are fuelling the rate of advancement of the field. Nevertheless further substantial developments are required in the understanding of convergences of materials, electronics and biological systems, to meet relevant needs for present and foreseeable applications. The several Symposia featured by CIMTEC 2012 - 4th International Conference “Smart Materials, Structures and Systems” will cover outstanding areas of the subject from the molecular nanoscales to large complex integrated systems. The Conference Committees are pleased to invite you to foster progress in the field by contributing to discussions within the frames of what promises to be an exciting meeting, and to enjoy the immense, unique, artistic heritage and wonderful landscape of Tuscany.

-Founded and Directed by designer-maker Elena Corchero, Lost Values holds the vision of innovating craft by melding it with technology and vice versa, to inspire a future where design is environmental and emotional yet smart and playful. Qualities that she believes are important aspects of life but are being forgotten in the quest for faster and more convenient products. - Distance Lab is a creative research organisation bringing together digital media technology, design and the arts to redefine and overcome the disadvantages of distance in learning, health care, relationships, culture and other domains.
Marielle Leenders Marielle Leenders wearable, new applications, clothing, garments, SMA, innovations, research, shape memory textiles, designer, smart textile
Designer Mariëlle Leenders has experimented with fabric that features shape memory wire either woven into the material or added later as one or more lines of stitching. Her Moving Textiles (2000) react to differences in temperature by shrinking, creasing, changing structure or rolling up. Lines of stitching added to the basic material in certain places cause the fabric to creep up when temperatures rise.

Iíve specialised myself in this field for the last two years by moving to Sweden to learn about circuits/engineering/wearable electronics/smart textiles and interaction design, participating in MEDIAMATIC Amsterdam, study interaction design, attending several courses, and doing side project with electronics.
sensoree Kristin Neidlinger 2011 - ongoing tech lab, smart textiles, future fabric
SENSOREE is an art and technology design lab elaborating on ideas of therapeutic, body architecture, interactive installations, sensitive technology, and robot clothes. SENSOREE designs future fabric and smart textiles for wearable technology and interactive installations. Our whimsical designs create external nervous systems that inspire body awareness, insight, and spontaneity. We promote extimacy – externalized intimacy. SENSOREE explores for the Sensory Computer Interface [SCI] — the investigation of proximity, intimacy, telepathy, intuition, and humor between human and machine. It’s a sensory soiree !
