Third CFC Deadline Extension - Handbook of Research on Wearable Computing
Innovations and Applications
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 sports 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 the stylish equipment. There are
many electronic solutions able to be used in their clothes, such as
textiles sensors.


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 addressed in this
book are the 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 technologies
    - 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 algorithms

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 *April 20,
2016*, a 2-3 pages chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and
concerns of their proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be
notified by *April 25, 2016* about the status of their proposals and will
be sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by *May
15, 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.
