In conjunction with the conference, Clemson University’s Center for Advanced Engineering Fibers and Films will present its Advanced Fiber Process Development Workshop, May 11. The one-day course will provide background on the key elements in a fiber-spinning process and the state-of-the-art in modeling those elements. It will also offer information on polymer characterization, including on-line measurements that can be made to verify model predictions. Registration and other details will be forthcoming and available on the Fiber Society website.

Finally, table top exhibitors will attend, demonstrating the latest in testing and analytical instruments, software, and materials and material conversion technologies. Registration details will be available on the Fiber Society website.
