Abstracts for submissions for ISWC 2006 are due on April 24th at 11:59 PM EDT, and submissions are due on May 1st at 11:59 PM EDT. Visit iswc.net to submit.
ISWC 2006, the tenth annual IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers, will bring together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and all other interested parties to share information and advances in wearable computing. We invite you to attend ISWC 2006 and submit to one or more of the following categories: papers, posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and exhibits.
Potential wearable computing topics for ISWC include, but are not limited to:
Papers, posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops must be submitted electronically through the submission web site, which will be linked off of the main web site at iswc.net. Papers and posters will be fully reviewed. Authors of accepted submissions will have the opportunity to update their submissions based on the reviews before the final electronic copy is due.
ISWC 2006 requires electronic submission. Reviewers will be instructed to maintain the confidentiality of all materials for submitted papers throughout the entire reviewing process. Submissions should contain no information that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.
Papers may be submitted as short papers (up to four pages in length) or full papers (up to eight pages in length). Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in IEEE Computer Science Press 8.5x11-inch two-column format (described at http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/cps_forms.html). Short papers should be the same quality as a long paper but describe work that is more incremental or more preliminary. Accepted short papers and full papers will be included in the printed conference proceedings and presented in the paper sessions. Paper authors are strongly encouraged to upload a supporting video of at most 5 minutes in length along with their paper submission.
Papers submitted to ISWC 2006 must not be under review by any other conference or publication during the ISWC review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.
Please address any questions about paper submissions to the program committee co-chairs, Jennifer Healey ( or Tom Martin ().
Posters are submitted in the form of a summary of up to two pages in length. Each poster summary must be submitted as a single PDF file in IEEE Computer Science Press 8.5x11-inch two-column format (described at http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/cps_forms.html). Accepted poster summaries will be published in the conference proceedings and the poster will be presented at the conference poster and demonstration session.
Please address any questions about poster submissions to the program committee co-chairs, Jennifer Healey ( or Tom Martin ().
Demonstrations provide an opportunity to show research prototypes and works in progress to colleagues for comment in a relaxed atmosphere. Both independent demonstrations and those accompaning accepted papers and posters are welcome. Demonstrations will not be published in the main conference proceedings, but will included in the demonstration handout. Accommodations (power, space, etc.) will be limited, so participants should plan to be mobile and self-supported. To apply to perform a demonstration, please send the following information to the Demonstrations Chair, Kurt Partridge () by July 6, 2006:
Notifications of acceptance for demonstrations will be delivered by August 10.
We invite you to share your wearable-related knowledge with other conference attendees in a tutorial or workshop format. A tutorial is an intensive course on a special topic. Half-day tutorials and advanced tutorials will be held. Tutorials are intended to enhance the skills and broaden the perspective of their attendees. They should be designed to introduce a rigorous framework for learning a new area or to provide advanced technical training in an area. Workshops differ from tutorials in that they may include a wider range of activities, such as working position groups, hands-on experiences with hardware/software provided, or standards efforts.
A two-page tutorial or workshop proposal should include a clear description of the topic area, objectives, and the intended audience (experience level and prerequisites). Tutorial proposals should also include a 200-word abstract, a topical outline of the content, and a summary of the qualifications of the instructor(s). Be sure to include the contact name, affiliation, address, telephone number, electronic mail address, and associated URL for each instructor or organizer.
Please address any questions about tutorial submissions to the Tutorials and Workshops Chair, Kent Lyons ().
We invite you to exhibit your products, designs, services, or research projects during the conference. Exhibits will be available continuously in a venue near the meeting room. Exhibitors will show their products and distribute promotional literature to interested conference attendees.
The number of exhibitors that are accepted for the conference will be limited by available space. To apply to be an exhibitor, write a summary of the product, service, or research project that you hope to exhibit, describing why it will interest the conference attendees. The summary should not exceed 500 words (one page) in length. Be sure to include in the summary the exhibitor names, affiliations, addresses, telephone numbers, electronic mail addresses, and URL. Also, identify the contact person for the exhibition. Applications to exhibit at ISWC 2006, and any questions about exhibiting, should be submitted by email directly to the exhibits chair, Holger Kenn ().
We will be having the traditional lightning-fast Gadget Show again this year. Come to the conference with your best toys for an informal show-and-tell.
