All papers should be submitted electronically through the submission website.

Full papers must describe original innovative research providing a review of related work, significant results, and the contribution made to the field of wearable computing.

Short papers should be the same quality as a full paper but describe work that is more incremental and is sufficiently complete to warrant publication. Short papers may also present preliminary studies demonstrating innovative thinking in the preparation for new research into meeting the challenges of the field.

Accepted short papers and full papers will be included in the printed conference proceedings and presented in the paper sessions. Paper authors are encouraged to upload a supporting video of at most 5 minutes in length along with their paper submission.

Papers submitted to ISWC 2008 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.
