Subject: CFP: 7th IEEE Intl Symp on Wearable Computers, April 28 deadline

7th IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers
OCTOBER 21-23, 2003
Crowne Plaza Hotel, White Plains, NY 10601
Submission deadline (all formats):  April 28, 2003

ISWC 2003, the Seventh annual IEEE International Symposium on Wearable
Computers, will bring together researchers, product vendors, fashion
designers, textile manufacturers, users, and all other interested
parties to share information and advances in wearable computing. We
invite you to attend ISWC 2003 and submit proposals for papers,
posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and exhibits.

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.
