Technical Committee on Research

For May 2020, TCR reports will be circulated as a compiled document rather than live reports.

The Technical Committee on Research (TCR, C3) meeting typically includes a brief report from each committee and interest group–a great way to catch up on anything you missed.


Many committees invite guest speakers to share their expertise as well as industry trends.

Welcome Reception

For May 2020, there will be no welcome reception.

If you are new to the AATCC committee meetings–or still have questions–join staff and key officers for an informal overview of what to expect, what to do, and who to ask.

Networking Reception

For May 2020, there will be no networking reception.

Mingle with industry colleagues over complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a drink. Registration includes one drink ticket.  A cash bar is also available.


For May 2020, there will be no tour. Plan now to join the tour in November! 

NC State University Nonwovens Institute
November 12, 2020
Time TBD

The Nonwovens Institute engages experts from industry and higher education in building next-generation nonwoven applications while also providing training and guidance to the field’s future leaders.

For May 2020, there will be no in-person meetings.

For November 2020, discounted rates will be available at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center located at 4700 Emperor Blvd, Durham, NC. Use the reservation link or contact the hotel directly at +919.941.5050 and mention the AATCC meetings. Reserve by the posted deadline to ensure the discounted rate and availability.

Your timely reservation as part of the AATCC room block helps reduce meeting costs and allows AATCC to offer free registration, including receptions and presentations.
