                          Call for Papers for the
          Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers

                   October 11-14, Montreux, Switzerland

  Initial submissions for all categories to ISWC 2006 are due on April 21st

  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

  Potential wearable computing topics for ISWC include, but are not
  limited to:

    * Applications of wearable systems in consumer, industrial, medical,
      wellness, educational, and military domains.
    * Use of wearable computers as components of larger systems, such as
      augmented reality systems, training systems or systems designed to
      support collaborative work.
    * Hardware, including wearable system design, input devices,
      wearable displays, batteries, techniques for power management and
      heat dissipation, industrial design, and manufacturing issues.
    * Software architectures, including ones that allow wearable
      computers to exploit surrounding infrastructure.
    * Human interfaces, including hands-free approaches, speech-based
      interaction, sensory augmentation, human-centered robotics, user
      modeling, user evaluation, health issues and interfaces for
      combining wearable and ubiquitous computing.
    * Networks, including wireless networks, on-body networks, and
      support for interaction with other wearables, ubiquitous-computing
      systems or the Internet.
    * Formal evaluation of wearable computer technologies for example
      performance of wearable computer technologies or comparisons of
      existing technologies.
    * Wearable sensors or networks of sensors for context-awareness or
      sensing cognitive state.
    * Wearable communities and wearable technology for social-network
      computation, visualization and augmentation.
    * Operating systems issues related to wearable computing, including
      such issues as scheduling, security, and power management.
    * Social implications and privacy issues.
    * Wearable computing for elder enablement and for people with
    * Fashion design, smart clothes, and electronic textiles.

  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 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

  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 format (described at 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

  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 ([log in to unmask])
  or Tom Martin ([log in to unmask]).

  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 format (described at 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 ([log in to unmask]) or
  Tom Martin ([log in to unmask]).

  Demonstrations provide an opportunity to show research prototypes and
  works in progress to colleagues for comment in a relaxed atmosphere.
  Paper and poster presenters are also highly encouraged to demonstrate
  their work. Accommodations (power, space, etc.) will be limited, so
  participants should plan to be mobile and self-supported. To apply to
  perform a demonstration, please prepare a one-page summary that
  describes what you plan to demonstrate; presentation method and
  requirement for space, power, lighting, sound, network and so on.
  Include pictures and diagrams, so that your proposed demonstration can
  be clearly understood, and provide a clear description of the power and
  space requirements. Accepted demonstrations will be presented at the
  conference poster and demonstration session; however, they will not be
  published in the conference proceedings.

  Please address any questions about demonstration submissions to the
  Demonstrations Chair, Kurt Partridge ([log in to unmask]).

  Tutorials and Workshops
  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 ([log in to unmask]).

  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

  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 ([log in to unmask]).

  Gadget Show
  We will be having the traditional lightning-fast Gadget Show again this
  year. Come to the conference with your best toys for an informal
