Paper submissions deadline: February 28th at 23:59PDT.


ISWC 2011, the fifteenth annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers,
is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues related to on-body and
worn mobile technologies. ISWC´11 will bring together researchers, product
vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and related
professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing. ISWC´11
explicitly aims to broaden its scope to include wearables and the cloud,
wearable uses of cell phones and cell phone applications, as they have become
the most successful wearable computer to date, wearables for professional use,
mainstream applications and healthcare, and wearable for entertainment.
ISWC´11 invites to submit original work in one or more of the following
formats: full papers, notes, posters, late breaking results, demonstrations,
videos, tutorials and workshops. As already successfully performed in the
past, this year’s ISWC also invites for a contest of wearable system designs,
encouraging academic and industrial design, media and art authorities to
submit conceptual work in a creative, inspiring, innovative and future
oriented style.

Call for Design Exhibition

The International Symposium on Wearable Computers invites submissions
of original works of wearable technology for its 2011 Juried
Exhibition. Submissions may comprise any type of wearable technology
(electronic, mechanical, textile, garments, etc), and designers are
encouraged to submit works of practical technology as well as works of
Designers are asked to 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 ISWC 2011 conference, in San

Evaluation Criteria
Concept: How novel is the concept or application? Has it been done
before? Is the approach novel? The work should exhibit depth of
understanding and insight.
Technology: How innovative is the use of technology: have advances
been made in the use of standard tools for a new purpose? Have new
technologies been developed? What does the technology bring to the
wearer or the viewer in the wearable environment?
Execution: How professional and polished is the finished product? Have
appropriate or novel construction techniques been implemented? How
have standard hardware components been adapted for the wearable
Communication: How well have the concept, novelty, and use of
technology been communicated? Is the idea and process evident in
written and visual materials?
