3rd International Workshop on Smart Appliances and Wearable Computing
Workshop at the 23rd International Conference on Distributed Computing
(ICDCS 2003), May 19-22, 2003, Providence, Rhode Island USA
Over the last several years, we have seen the rapid evolution in smart
appliances and devices, as well as personal and wearable computers. In
addition, collaborative computing technologies based on these devices
facilitates a wealth of new prospective applications. Such applications
require enabling software and hardware technologies like new kinds of
embedded devices, networks, infrastructure, software architectures and
models. This workshop offers the opportunity for in-depth exploration of
selected topics and for the presentation of the most recent research and
development findings in these rapidly changing fields.
