		      Call for Participation for
      the 9th IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers

		October 18 - 21, 2005 in Osaka, Japan

     Advance regisration ends at 11:59 PM (JST) on September 22.

ISWC 2005, the ninth 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.  
ISWC 2005 offers several sessions of technical presentations, poster
sessions and demonstrations, a fashion show featuring technical
design, a gadget show, and an impressive student corner.

- Applications of wearable systems in consumer, industrial, medical,
  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, including such issues as scheduling, security,
  and power management. 
- Social implications and privacy issues. 
- Wearable computing for people with disabilities. 
- Fashion design, smart clothes, and electronic textiles.
