Book Description :
Welcome to the 3rd Indonesian Textile Conference (ITC) 2019. It is our great honor and pleasure to have you all here today. Indonesian Textile Conference is by far the only scientific event in the field of textiles in Indonesia aimed to bring together leading researchers, experts, students and people from the industry to share their knowledge and exchange scientific ideas. Indonesia is one of the leading textile exporter countries in the world with a total export value of USD 15.3 billion in 2015 and ranked the third after palm oil and steel (source: Ministry of Industry of Republic of Indonesia). It is one of the ten priority industries and the mainstay of Indonesian national industry. In a global economy and fast changing world, the future of Indonesian textile industry will increasingly depend on the industry’s ability to relentlessly innovate in its products, to use the most advanced, flexible and resource-efficient processes and to focus its organizational structure as well as business operations according to the ever changing and growing needs of its customers. In all that, research and innovation are vital and play an ever increasing role. Indonesian Textile Conference was initiated and is dedicated to promote and bring progress to research and innovation in the field of textile and textile-related subjects in Indonesia. Textile is a rich multidisciplinary area of study and in fact has attracted a great deal of attention and numerous contributions from non-textile scientists. It is not just about clothing. It is all about material and all aspects that are inherent in the process of its production and applications. It covers a whole lot of area which includes but not limited to: advanced material and textile fibers, natural fibers and natural dyes, utilization of natural sources for textiles in general and/or functional textiles, environmental protection and ecological considerations in textile industry, life cycle analysis, clean/green production, best practices in energy efficient processes, bio-based polymer, bioengineering, nanotechnology, textile-based composites, industrial management and engineering, traditional textiles and batik, textile preservation and conservation, and design. Smart, functional and interactive textile is another area of interest which is quite recent and resulted from the convergence of latest developments in material science, physics and chemistry, microelectronics and informatics. Stimuli responsive materials, self-healing polymers, textile energy devices, textile sensor and antenna are only a few examples of development in this area. Recently added to this is a new emerging “fashionable technology”. It is a new concept that brings fashion to the next level by integrating technology and fashion. It looks at the future fashion as intersection of design, fashion, science, and technology beyond wearable technology. Still another important and interesting issue in textile is sustainability, especially due to the stigma associated with the industry as the big polluter and being not environmentally-friendly. Sustainable textiles and clothing involves the choice of materials, technologies and processing methods that ensure environmental and social friendliness and safety to human health throughout the entire life-cycle phases. Thus, there is an ample room for almost everyone to contribute in this conference. On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the management of Politeknik STTT Bandung, have a productive and fruitful conference.
