The idea behind the ISWC Student Colloquium is to offer expertise
opinion and help to new students and researchers that want to contribute
to future wearable computing research, at the main annual event for the
field: the International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC).
The ISWC Student Colloquium welcomes work from a broad range of
disciplines and approaches that inform wearable computing, including
computer science, engineering, textiles design, sociology, cognitive
science and other related fields. Results of experimental or theoretical
evaluation are not a prerequisite, since the aim is to encourage the
presentation of novel ideas, including recently started PhD proposals,
and offer tips and pointers to drive the work towards full-paper quality
Students wishing to attend need to contribute a short paper of which
they are the first author. Submissions should be in IEEE Computer
Science Press format and have a maximum of 3 pages in length. The
submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts on the basis of
originality, soundness and scientific merit of the research goals, and
the quality of its presentation.
Accepted contributions will be invited to take part in a poster session
during the conference, where the participants can present and discuss
their ideas with the international wearables research community. The
posters will be evaluated again and the best contribution will be
awarded a best student proposal prize. The accepted short papers will be
published in dedicated proceedings and will be made available
electronically to the public as refereed proposal abstracts.
Student Colloquium submissions, and any questions regarding the process,
can be submitted by email directly to the Student Colloquium chair,
