                         Tentative Call for Papers for
        the Eleventh IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers
                        October 8-11, Cambridge, MA, USA

Abstracts for submissions for ISWC 2007 are due on April 20th at 11:59
PM EDT, and submissions are due on April 22nd at 11:59 PM EDT.  Visit to submit.

ISWC 2007, the eleventh 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 2007 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:

	* 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 2007 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
).  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 2007 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, Bernt Schiele (schiele[at]cs[dot]tu-darmstadt[dot]de) or
Tapani Ryhanen

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  
). 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, Bernt Schiele (schiele[at]cs[dot]tu-darmstadt[dot]de)
or Tapani Ryhanen.
