Call for Papers: Global fashion and textile industry during the Covid-19

The role of the fashion and textile industries has been significant during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many apparel companies contribute to reducing the pandemic impact by shifting their productions to masks and protective gowns providing immediate helped for many medical professionals and civilians. However, Covid-19 has resulted in many other challenges and issues apparel and textile companies need to solve.

The objective of this Special Issue is to examine the challenges and the impact of unprecedented changes in Covid-19 and to illustrate how the fashion and textile companies are responding and adapting the scenario of Covid-19 from the global and multidisciplinary perspectives.

Call for Papers: Fashion and Hyper-Connected Future

In the hyper-connected future, people, things, space, and everything will be networked and communicated, opening a new challenge and chance for every sector in the clothing and textile industry. The center of the industry moves quickly from product to service, from hardware to software, from functionality to information. What disruptive innovation will the future of the textile, clothing, and fashion industries experience in a smart-life space? How will higher education and research paradigm change in response to this?

Call for Papers: Designs and Functions of Smart Textiles and Clothing

With the rapid development of electronic information technology, intelligent electronic devices are constantly flooding our life and production. Textiles and clothing with sensing and actuating effects also support and enrich the future smart clothing and wearable market due to their sensing, monitoring, actuating and self-regulation performance under the stimulation of environmental stimuli, including pressure, temperature, humidity, thermal and so on. Researchers have made initial achievements in the research of smart textiles, but the future large-scale production and popularization still need our joint efforts. Our goal is to seek novel research, build a bridge between sensors, actuators, and smart wearable devices, and make the future textile and apparel industry more intelligent.

Call for Papers: Appearance, Dress, and Social Psychology in the Contemporary Society

Recognizing the relevance and importance of social psychology in explaining dress-related behaviors, we aim to seek original and novel research to deepen our understanding of the dress behaviors in the contemporary society. This special issue will carry revised and extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2018 KSCT-ITAA joint symposium, but we are also inviting other experts to submit manuscripts for this call.
