Second CFC - Handbook of Research on Wearable Computing Innovations and
Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call.
Please redistribute within your own group or among colleagues, thank you!


Wearable computing deals with issues related to on-body and worn mobile
technologies. Wearable is an emerging area that has grown in the last years
due to several new applications and companies in different fields, such as
healthcare and sport solutions, but also to more innovative solutions such
as smart watches and smart glasses. Also, the low cost and the increase of
power computing of embedded systems will allow the large-scale production
of wearable solutions and the emergence of new prototypes and ideas.

User interface design, pattern recognition, wireless personal area network
technologies and augmented reality are examples of wearable computing
research. Another important fact to be considered is the design of
solutions, once users are willing to use stylish equipments. There are many
electronic solutions able to be used in their clothes, such as textiles


The main objective of this book is to be a state-of-art reference of
wearable systems. It aims to examine current and future technologies,
discuss proposed solutions and standards, and describe challenges and
opportunities in this area. Some of the issues we foresee discussed in this
book are: integration of wearable systems with Internet of Things, peer-to
peer wireless local area network and body area network; real-time data
processing in wearable systems; and study energy management techniques in
the wearable context.

Recommended topics, but not limited to:

    Wearable communication:
    - Body Area Network
    - Wearable connected to cloud and its communication tecnologies
    - Wearable and IoT

Wearable Hardware and Software:
    - Non-Invasive technologies
    - New materials
    - Embedded wearable
    - Wearable distributed systems
    - Operating systems and wearable
    - Energy management
    - Data fusion algotithms

Wearable applications

    - Wearable applied to safety
    - Wearable environment monitoring
    - Wearable for human rehabilitation
    - Wearable health care
    - Wearable Sensors
    - Wearable user tracking

*Submission Procedures*

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before December
18, 2015, a chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of
their proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by
January 18, 2016 about the status of their proposals and will be sent
chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by March 30,
2016, and all interested authors must consult the guidelines for manuscript
submissions at
prior to submission. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a
double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as
reviewers for other chapters.

*Submit your proposal *

*Target Audience*

This book could be used as a basic reference for researchers and students
who want to learn the concepts and directions about the area. We hope that
the book will become a reference on technological courses about this topic.
