UbiComp and ISWC 2021 invite proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials to be held at the 2021 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp), and the International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC). All tutorials will be held on Saturday, September 25, and Sunday, September 26, 2021 after the main conference. The UBICOMP & ISWC Tutorials program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on recently emerging topics and trends, provide surveys of complementary techniques to those commonly studied within the UbiComp and Wearable communities, and inform industrial practitioners on the state-of-the-art within the field. We encourage submissions of proposals on topics in the general areas of Ubiquitous Computing and Wearable Computing. Tutorials should be given by experts in the subject matter.
