Registration Open for ISWC 2011

ISWC 2011 is collocated with Pervasive 2011 and will take place June
12-15, 2011 in San Francisco, California, USA at the Hotel Nikko.

Early Registration (by May 8, 2011)
For details about the registration:
Please also book your room in the conference hotel, the Hotel Nikko.


ISWC 2011, the fifteenth annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers,
is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues related to on-body and
worn mobile technologies. ISWC´11 will bring together researchers, product
vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and related
professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing. ISWC´11
explicitly aims to broaden its scope to include wearables and the cloud,
wearable uses of cell phones and cell phone applications, as they have become
the most successful wearable computer to date, wearables for professional use,
mainstream applications and healthcare, and wearable for entertainment.
ISWC´11 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.



## Wearable Systems
 * Wearable system design, wearable displays and electronic textiles
 * Wearable sensors, actuators, input/output devices and power management
 * Interaction design, industrial design of wearable systems
 * Wearable sensor networks for sensing context-awareness, activity or
 cognitive state
 * Software and service architectures, infrastructure based as well as
 ad-hoc systems
 * Operating systems issues related to wearable computing, including issues
 such as dependability, fault tolerance, security, trustworthiness and
 power management
 * Networks, including wireless networks, on-body networks, and support for
 interaction with other wearables, pervasive and ubiquitous computing
 systems or the Internet
 * Wearables and the Cloud
 * Cooperative wearables, ensembles of wearable artifacts, coordination or
 * Techniques for power management and heat dissipation, and manufacturing

## Usability, HCI and Human Factors in Wearable Computing
 * Human factors issues with and ergonomics of body worn computing systems
