                        Submission Deadline: 7. December
      3rd International Workshop on Smart Appliances and Wearable Computing
                                   IWSAWC 2003

 Workshop at the 23rd International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems
           (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

. Enabling Technologies for Appliance, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing
. Infrastructure for Ubiquitous Computing
. Home and Office Appliances
. Portable Devices and Smart Sensors
. Wireless-phone Computing
. Home Networks and Wearable Networks
. Security and Privacy Aspects for Appliances
. Wearable Computers and PDAs
. Software Architecture for Home/Smart Appliances
. Location-dependent and context-aware Computing

Deadline for submissions:      7. December 2002
