|Early Registration Deadline :
for Papers, Posters, Panels, Demos, Tutorials and Workshops, Doctoral Colloquium:
the twelfth annual IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers,
is the premier forum for wearable computing. It will bring together researchers,
product vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and
related professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing.
We invite you to attend ISWC 2008 and submit to one or more of the following
categories: papers, posters, demonstrations, exhibits, tutorials/workshops
and panel discussions. This year we are also placing special emphasis
on cell phones as they have become the most successful wearable computer
to date; and we solicit papers on:
applications designed for cell phones
- Cell phones
as personal computers
cell phone hardware e.g. sensing, novel IO, modules
based on cell phone deployments (especially large scale)
- Cell phones
that combine short and long range radios
computer systems based on cell phones
core topics for ISWC submissions include, but are not limited to:
systems in consumer, industrial, medical, wellness, educational, and
computing in fashion and smart clothing, for people with disabilities,
and for elder enablement.
- use of
wearable computers as components of larger systems, such as augmented
reality systems, training systems and systems designed to support collaborative
evaluation of performance of wearable computer technologies, and comparisons
with existing technologies.
system design, input devices, wearable displays, actuators, electronic
textiles, and batteries.
and industrial design.
sensors, and networks for sensing context-awareness or cognitive state.
for power management and heat dissipation, and manufacturing issues.
including systems that allow wearable computers to exploit surrounding
systems issues related to wearable computing, including issues such
as scheduling, security, and power management.
including wireless networks, on-body networks, and support for interaction
with other wearables, ubiquitous-computing systems or the Internet.
including hands-free approaches, speech-based interaction, sensory augmentation,
haptics, and human-centered robotics.
- user modeling,
user evaluation, and interfaces for combining wearable and ubiquitous
implications, health, and privacy issues.
communities and wearable technology for social-network computation,
visualization and augmentation.
posters must be submitted electronically through the submission
website. Initial submissions are due on April 28th. 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
ISWC 2008 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.
Instructions for papers, posters, demonstrations, exhibits, tutorials/workshops, panel
proposals, and the doctoral colloquium.
