  ISWC'09, the thirteenth annual IEEE International Symposium  on
  Wearable Computers, is the premier forum for wearable computing
  and  issues  related  to  on-body and worn mobile technologies.
  ISWC'09  will  bring  together  researchers,  product  vendors,
  fashion  designers,  textile  manufacturers, users, and related
  professionals to share information  and  advances  in  wearable
  computing.  ISWC'09  explicitly  aims  to  broaden its scope to
  include cell phones and cell phone applications  as  they  have
  become the most successful wearable computer to date. 
  ISWC'09  invites  to submit original work in one or more of the
  following formats: full papers, notes, posters,  late  breaking
  results,  demonstrations,  videos,  tutorials and workshops. As
  already successfully performed in the past,  this  year's  ISWC
  also   invites  for  a  contest  of  wearable  system  designs,
  encouraging academic  and  industrial  design,  media  and  art
  authorities to submit conceptual work in a creative, inspiring,
  innovative and future oriented style.
  For  first time, ISWC'09 will publish adjunct proceedings which
  will  include  the  late  breaking   results,   video   papers,
  demonstrations, design papers of selected workshops.
  *Late Breaking Results*
  This  submission  format aims at presenting very topical issues
  and late breaking application oriented results in all areas  of
  wearable  computing.  Just  like  regular papers, late breaking
  results should  present  directing  research,  but  in  a  very
  focused  and  compact  format.  Late  breaking  results are not
  understood as short papers condensed into less page space,  but
  are  intended  to  present  pointed  results at a high level of
  technicality.  LBR  submissions  can  gain  from  an  "extended
  submission deadline" (June 3, 2009), and should be formatted in
  Springer LNCS single column format,  not  exceeding  8  pages).
  They will undergo a scientific reviewing process managed by the
  LBR  program  committee  under  the  steering of the LBR chair.
  Accepted LBRs will be presented at the conference, and will  be
  published  in  the "Advances in Wearable Computing" book of the
  OCG  (adjunct   proceedings),   accompanying   the   conference
  *Video Papers*
  Submissions  (deadline June 3, 2009)  are  invited  to  present
  novel wearable computing systems,  devices or just designs,  or
  demonstrate  innovative styles of  interaction or usability  of
  those systems  -  in a lively format:  as a video.  Video clips
  should  be no longer than  8 minutes and be accompanied by a  4
  page  (or approx.  2000 words)  written  summary.  Video  paper
  submissions should be formatted in  Springer LNCS single column
  format, and not exceeding 4 pages).  Accepted video papers will
  be  published in the  "Advances in Wearable Computing" book  of
  the  OCG,   accompanying   the  conference   proceedings.   The
  author(s)   of  a  video  are  expected  to  present  a   brief
  introduction  at the conference, while all full videos will  be
  presented  during the ISWC'09  night show - a special event  in
  the  frame  of the  30th anniversary  of  the  Ars  Electronica
  Festival.  Video  papers  will  be  published  in  the  ISWC'09
  adjunct  proceedings, all video clips will be presented in  the
  ISWC'09 Video DVD.
  *Reviewing Process for Papers, Notes, Posters, LBRs and Videos*
  ISWC'09  will  adopt  a  double-blind  process for full papers,
  notes and posters - as well as for late  breaking  results  and
  video papers. Authors' names and their affiliations must not be
  revealed  or mentioned anywhere in the submission. Please refer
  to  the  paper  submission  link  at  the  conference   website
  (  Questions  about the papers, notes and posters
  should be directed to [log in to unmask], about  late  breaking
  results  submissions  to  [log in to unmask],  and  about  video
  papers to [log in to unmask]
  Demonstrations   provide   an   opportunity  to  show  research
  prototypes and works-in-progress to colleagues for comment in a
  relaxed atmosphere. Both independent demonstrations  and  those
  accompanying   accepted   papers   and   posters  are  welcome.
  Demonstrations will not be published  in  the  main  conference
  proceedings,  but  will be included in the adjunct proceedings.
  Accommodations (power,  space,  etc...)  will  be  limited,  so
  participants  should  plan  to be mobile and self-supported. To
  apply to perform a demonstration, please submit (i) a  one-page
  summary  that describes what you plan to demonstrate, including
  a 200 word abstract (ii) a photo or diagram to be  included  in
  the  demonstration handout alongside the abstract (minimum size
  640 x 480 pixels),  and  (iii)  to  [log in to unmask]  by
  Monday, July 13, 2009.   Only the abstract will be included  in
  the "Advances in Wearable Computing" book (adjunct proceedings),
  the rest of the summary will be used to judge  the  quality  of
  the submission. 
  *Design Contest*
  Participating at the ISWC design contest is a great opportunity
  to  showcase  your  product  or  prototype  to  the  leaders in
  wearable computing. The design contest will take  place  during
  the  conference banquet dinner on Sunday, September 6, 2009 and
  can be used to demonstrate your "smart  gadgets"  (plan  to  be
  mobile  and  self-supported). Contributions are encouraged from
  all areas of wearable computing, from technologies to textiles,
  from potential employers to product vendors. Please submit your
  proposals   (a  one-page  summary  describing  your  prototype,
  including   a   200  word  abstract   and   photos/videos)   to
  [log in to unmask] at the latest by Wednesday June 3, 2009.
  Direct  questions   related   to   the   Design   Contest   to

  *Tutorials and Workshops*
  Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF format via E-mail
  to  [log in to unmask]  by February 1, 2009. The workshops will
  provide  a  forum  to  discuss  topical  aspects  of   wearable
  computing  in  focus groups. State of the art tutorials will be
  presented  by  experienced,   distinguished   presenters.   The
  workshops  and tutorials will take place on Friday, September 4
  2009 (a day before the main  conference).  ([log in to unmask],

  *Doctoral Colloquium*
  The  purpose  of  the  colloquium  is to offer PhD students and
  candidates, interested  in  the  wearable/mixed  and  augmented
  reality  fields,  an  opportunity  to  present  their ideas and
  research plans in an international, agile and renowned audience
  of junior and senior researchers and developers in the wearable
  computing field. Thesis position papers (5 pages including  all
  figures  and  bibliography)  are  solicited  relating a problem
  statement, methodological approach,  potential  for  innovation
  and   expected   contribution  to  the  international  wearable
  computing literature. Accepted submissions  will  be  presented
  during  the  colloquium  and  will  be  included in the ISWC'09
  adjunct proceedings. The doctoral colloquium will take place on
  Friday, September 4, 2009 (a day before the  main  conference).
  Authors will also be expected to present a poster of their work
  during  demonstration  session  at  ISWC  (September  6, 2009).
  Further information can be obtained from the conference website or from [log in to unmask] 
  The ISWC'09 Proceedings will  be  published  by  IEEE  Computer
  Society Press as print proceedings, and on-line via IEEE XPlore
  Digital   Library   (approval  pending).  The  ISWC'09  Adjunct
  Proceedings will be published by  the  OCG,  an  ISBN  carrying
  publisher, in the book "Advances in Wearable Computing".
