        Call for Design Exhibition Submissions


   ISWC 2015 (Collocated with UbiComp 2015)

   September 7-11, 2015, Osaka, Japan

ISWC 2015, the nineteenth annual International Symposium on Wearable
Computers, is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues
related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. ISWC 2015 brings
together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile
manufacturers, end users, and related professionals to share
information and advances in wearable computing. ISWC 2015 will be held
September 7-11 in Osaka, Japan, collocated with UbiComp 2015.

ISWC 2015's Juried Design Exhibition invites submissions of original
works of wearable technology and/or novel applications for new
audiences using existing technologies. Submissions may comprise any
type of wearable technology (electronic, mechanical, textile and
garment-based, etc). Awards for the best design will be given in three
categories: Aesthetic, Functional, and Fiber Art.

== Design Exhibition Categories==

*Functional: Submissions to this category should be
functionally-focused wearable designs, aimed at using technology to
solve a particular problem or meet a specific need.
*Aesthetic: Submissions to this category should be
aesthetically-focused wearable designs, aimed at developing an
aesthetic or visual effect through the use of technology.
*Fiber arts: Submissions to this category should be non-wearable, but
textile- or fiber-integrated innovations. Fiber arts submissions may
be functionally or aesthetically focused.

Confused about which category to pick? Many designs address both
functional and aesthetic aspects of a problem. Designers should
consider in which aspect their design is strongest, and submit it to
that category.

==Submission Content==

Designers are asked to submit an illustrated design statement
detailing the work's concept, motivation, intended audience and
end-use, technological functionality, and execution. Detailed images
must illustrate the text.
Please submit your document as one compiled PDF file, formatted
according to the ACM extended abstracts format. The submission should
not exceed 6 pages, including embedded images. All figures should be
included in the document body and referenced in the text. Please cite
all references used in the text according to the ACM formatting
instructions. Your submitted PDF should not exceed 6 pages or 5MB.
Please prepare your paper for blind review: do not include any names
or institution affiliations within your submitted PDF.

Design submissions should include an illustration or image. It is
strongly encouraged to include High Res Images and a Video at the time
of submission. High Res Images and a Video will be required of all
accepted designs for the camera ready submission and will be used in
the ISWC Design Exhibition. Submit your design statement and
supporting materials through the PrecisionConference site

Please note: Accepted designs will need to for shipped/transported to
Osaka, to arrive on or before September 7, 2015. Authors will be
responsible for shipping items to and from Osaka, Japan.

==Evaluation Criteria==

1) Concept Originality: How novel is the concept or application? Has
it been done before? Is the approach novel? The work should exhibit
depth of understanding and insight.
2) Technological Innovation: How innovative is the use of technology:
have advances been made in the use of standard tools for a new
purpose? Have new technologies been developed? What does the
technology bring to the wearer or the viewer in the wearable
3) Execution: How professional and polished is the finished product?
Have appropriate or novel construction techniques been implemented?
How have standard hardware components been adapted for the wearable
4) Communication and Rigor: How well have the concept, novelty, and
use of technology been communicated? Is the idea and process evident
in written and visual materials?
5) Audience/Usability: How appropriate is the design for the intended
audience/purpose? (Aesthetic and Fiber Art.) How well have the
designers addressed the usability of their interface/interaction?
(Functional and Fiber Art.)
All submissions will be evaluated by the jury panel for their
following design elements, as outlined above: concept, use of
technology, execution, and visual/written communication.
Aesthetically-focused designs will also be evaluated with respect to
their aesthetic novelty and appropriateness for the intended purpose,
and functionally-focused designs will also be evaluated with respect
to the usability of the technology for the specified audience.

Accepted works will be exhibited at the conference venue, and accepted
exhibitors may be asked to supply additional visual materials to
accompany the exhibition. Designers will assume the cost of
transporting their work to and from Osaka, to arrive before September
7th, 2015.

Design statements from all accepted designs will be included in the
ISWC Adjunct Proceedings. Design awards will be presented at the
conference for the Aesthetic, Functional, and Fiber Arts categories.
