I am delighted to welcome TBIS 2018 delegates to Manchester. Our city is internationally recognized for its innovations in science and technology, and as the home of the Industrial Revolution. TBIS (Textile Bioengineering and Informatics Symposium) is a well-known international forum exploring the cross-disciplinary interfaces of materials, biology, textile science and engineering, computer science and informatics, and life sciences. More and more world-class researchers from across the scientific community attend the meetings of the TBIS to present the outcomes of their latest research, to discuss unsolved scientific problems and social challenges, to identify opportunities and to establish future development agendas. I have great pleasure in hosting TBIS 2018 at the Manchester Conference Centre, UK, from July 25 to 28, 2018.
With continuous success and enthusiastic support from authors and experts around the world, TBIS has been recognized internationally as a brand characterized by high-quality conferences with vision, creativity, excitement and global networks. Meanwhile, TBIS proceedings have been indexed by worldwide scientific and academic databases of renown, such as EI Compendex, Scopus and CPCI/ISI Web of Knowledge. Since 2008, TBIS has published 1,868 research papers indexed in the CPCI/ISI Web of Knowledge database, thus becoming a leading academic conference organizer and publisher.
TBIS has established an effective platform for academic institutions and individual scholars, researchers and students to publish their research and communicate with peers and experts in the field to receive recognition for their work and increase its impact, for example, through citations and -indexes. Each TBIS is a peer-reviewed conference, whose aim is to provide a unique global platform for people working in the whole supply chain from materials, fibers, textiles and apparel and technical textiles to relevant service industries, such as the biomedical industry, fashion industry and sport industry, with common interests in providing high-quality products and services focused on the protection, health, performance and comfort of human populations living in various environments and exposed to various natural and human disasters. On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially welcome you to TBIS 2018 in Manchester and look forward to your active participation.
