Potential wearable computing topics for ISWC include, but are not limited to:
* Applications of wearable systems in consumer, industrial,
medical, educational, and military domains.
* Use of wearable computers as components of larger systems,
such as augmented reality systems, training systems, or
systems designed to support collaborative work.
* Hardware, including wearable system design, input devices,
wearable displays, batteries, techniques for power management and heat
dissipation, industrial design, and manufacturing issues.
* Software architectures, including ones that allow wearable
computers to exploit surrounding infrastructure.
* Human interfaces, including hands-free approaches,
speech-based interaction, sensory augmentation, human-centered
robotics, user modeling, user evaluation, and health issues.
* Networks, including wireless networks, on-body networks, and
support for interaction with other wearables and the Internet.
* Experimental research that rigorously compares using wearables
to other methods or technologies for performing the same task, such as
traditional methods or handheld computers.
* Operating systems, including such issues as scheduling,
security, and power management.
* Social implications and privacy issues.
* Wearable computing for people with disabilities.
* Fashion design, smart clothes, and electronic textiles.
