  ISWC 2012, the sixteenth annual International Symposium on Wearable
  Computers, is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues
  related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. ISWC brings
  together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile
  manufacturers, users, and related professionals to share information
  and advances in wearable computing.

  ISWC invites submissions on everything related to computing on the
  body: "on-the-go" uses of mobile phones, on-body sensing, wearables
  for professional use, mobile healthcare, entertainment, cloud
  computing, etc.... See the lists under "Areas of Interest"  below for

  You are invited to submit original work in one or more of the
  following formats:

   - full papers
   - notes
   - posters
   - late breaking results
   - demonstrations
   - videos
   - tutorials and workshops.

  The ISWC Author Guide is available as a resource to help you
  author a high-quality submission.
  Author Guide :

  ISWC 2012 Full Papers, Notes and Posters are due on January 13, 2012
  at 23:59 PDT.


  PCS :


  Wearable Systems
   - Wearable system design, wearable displays and electronic textiles
   - Wearable sensors, actuators, input/output devices and power
     management systems
   - Interaction design, industrial design of wearable systems
   - Wearable sensor networks for sensing context-awareness, activity
     or cognitive state
   - Software and service architectures, infrastructure based as well
     as ad-hoc systems
   - Operating systems issues related to wearable computing, including
     issues such as dependability, fault tolerance, security,
     trustworthiness and power management
   - Networks, including wireless networks, on-body networks, and
     support for interaction with other wearables, pervasive and
     ubiquitous computing systems or the Internet
   - Wearables and the cloud
   - Cooperative wearables, ensembles of wearable artifacts,
     coordination or wearables
   - Techniques for power management and heat dissipation, and
     manufacturing issues

  Usability, HCI and Human Factors in Wearable Computing
   - Human factors issues with and ergonomics of body worn computing
   - User modeling, user evaluation, usability engineering of wearable
   - Systems and designs for combining wearable and
     pervasive/ubiquitous computing
   - Interfaces, including hands-free approaches, speech-based
     interaction, sensory augmentation, haptics, and human-centered
   - Social implications, health risk, environmental and privacy issues
   - Wearable technology for social-network computing, visualization
     and augmentation
   - Experience design

  Applications of Wearable Systems
   - Wearable systems in consumer, industrial, work, manufacturing,
     environmental, educational, medical, sports, wellness, health
     care and ambient assisted living domains
   - Wearable systems in culture, fashion and the arts
   - Smart clothing, for people with disabilities, and for elderly
   - Use of wearable computers as components of larger systems, such
     as augmented reality systems, training systems and systems
     designed to support collaborative work
   - Wearables for entertainment
   - Formal evaluation of performance of wearable computer
     technologies, and comparisons with existing technologies

  Mobile Phones as Wearables
   - Mobile applications designed for / delivered through cell phones
   - Cell phone services, cell phone designs, cell phones as personal
   - Cell phone technologies, e.g. combining short and long range
     radios, multimedia streaming
   - Extending cell phone hardware e.g. sensing, novel IO modalities,
   - Cell phone interaction, cooperative cell phones, grids and clouds
     of cell phones
   - Studies based on cell phone deployments (especially large scale)


  Full Papers
  Regular paper submissions must present original, highly innovative,
  prospective and forward-looking research in one or more of the
  themes given above. Full papers must break new ground, present new
  insight, deliver a significant research contribution and provide
  validated support for its results and conclusions. Successful
  submissions typically represent a major advance for the field of
  wearable computing, referencing and relating the contribution to
  existing research work, giving a comprehensive, detailed and
  understandable explanation of a device, system, study, theory or
  method, and support the findings with a compelling evaluation and/or

  Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in IEEE Computer
  Science Press 8.511 inch two-column format (not longer than eight
  pages in length). Accepted regular papers will be included in the
  printed conference main proceedings and presented in the paper
  sessions. Submissions to ISWC'12 must not be under review by any
  other conference or publication during the ISWC review cycle, and
  must not be previously published or accepted for publication
  elsewhere. See the Author Guide for more information.

  Paper submissions are due January 13, 2012 at 23:59PDT.

  Notes and Posters
  Notes (not longer than four pages in length) and posters (not longer
  than two pages in length) must report new results and provide
  support for the results, as a novel and valuable contribution to the
  field just like full papers. Notes are intended for succinct work
  that is nonetheless in a mature state ready for inclusion in
  archival proceedings. Posters are intended to present very concise,
  yet focused and significant research results. Both notes and posters
  will be held to the same standard of scientific quality as full
  papers, albeit for a shorter presentation, and must still state how
  they fit with respect to related work, and provide a compelling
  explanation and validation.

  Notes and posters must be submitted as single PDF file in IEEE
  Computer Science Press 8.511-inch two-column format. Accepted notes
  and posters will be published in the conference main
  proceedings. Notes will be presented in the paper sessions of the
  conference; posters will be presented at the conference poster and
  demonstration session. See the Author Guide for more information.

  Note and Poster submissions are due January 13, 2012 at 23:59PDT.

  Design Exhibition
  Original wearable design works may be submitted to the design
  exhibition, including practical wearable technology (electronic,
  mechanical, textile, garments) and wearable art. Designers should
  submit an illustrated design statement, detailing the work's
  concept, motivation, technological functionality, and
  execution. Detailed images must illustrate the text. Submissions
  will be evaluated by the jury panel for their following design
  elements: concept, use of technology, execution, and communication.

  Accepted works will be exhibited at the conference. During the
  conference, the jury will select 3 prize winners: Best Concept, Best
  Execution, and Best in Show.


  ISWC'12 adopts a double-blind process for full papers, notes and
  posters. Authors' names and their affiliations must not be revealed
  or mentioned anywhere in the submission. See the Author Guide
  for more information.
  Author Guide :


  The ISWC'12 Proceedings consisting of Papers, Notes and Posters will
  be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as print proceedings,
  and on-line via IEEE Xplore Digital Library (approval
  pending). Additional material will be published electronically.

  Highly regarded papers will be invited to submit an extended version
  for possible inclusion in a special issue of the Personal and
  Ubiquitous Computing Journal.
