Conference Invitation

"It is great satisfaction and pleasure that I welcome everyone interested in participating in the 21st Autex 2022 Conference. I hope that despite the meeting: 100% online, the Conference will be an unforgettable event for all participants. I wish you intense and fruitful discussions during our Conference.

Meanwhile, I would like to show you around our wonderful city of Lodz - the city woven from history, textile industry and film, where now the rich history is intertwined with modernity in art, fashion and architecture. I invite you also to take a virtual trip around our university by visiting our website."

AUTEX is the Association of Universities for Textiles, which brings together prestigious universities in the field of the textile industry from all over the world. It was founded in 1994, and currently has active members from over 30 countries. Its mission is to facilitate co-operation amongst members in high level textile education and research.

The objectives of AUTEX are:

  • to promote the activities and achievements of the member Universities on a European and Global stage;

  • to facilitate co-operation in the development and delivery of high level taught courses and teaching materials amongst member Universities;

  • to encourage student and staff mobility and networking amongst member Universities and invited partners;

  • to facilitate the growth of active research partnerships amongst member Universities and invited partners;

  • to organise annual symposia to disseminate cutting-edge issues to textile professionals and students.


Every year a different member of AUTEX is organising the association’s conference (since 2001), in which hundreds of researchers and companies participate. The AUTEX Conference is one of the most important scientific events in the field of textiles aimed to bring together leading researchers, experts, students and people from the industry from all over the world to share their knowledge and exchange scientific ideas.
