Location: Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Dates: October 11-13, 2007
Abstract submission deadline: April 22, 2007
Paper submission deadline: April 26, 2007

Call for Papers
===============
Abstracts for submissions for ISWC 2007 are due on April 22nd at 11:59
PM EDT, and submissions are due on April 26th at 11:59 PM EDT.  Visit
http://iswc.net to submit.

ISWC 2007, the eleventh 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 2007 and submit to one or more of the
following categories:  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,
    wellness, 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, health issues and interfaces for
    combining wearable and ubiquitous computing.
  * Networks, including wireless networks, on-body networks, and
    support for interaction with other wearables, ubiquitous-computing
    systems or the Internet.
  * Formal evaluation of wearable computer technologies for example
    performance of wearable computer technologies or comparisons of
    existing technologies.
  * Wearable sensors or networks of sensors for context-awareness or
    sensing cognitive state.
  * Wearable communities and wearable technology for social-network
    computation, visualization and augmentation.
  * Operating systems issues related to wearable computing, including
    such issues as scheduling, security, and power management.
  * Social implications and privacy issues.
  * Wearable computing for elder enablement and for people with
    disabilities.
  * Fashion design, smart clothes, and electronic textiles.

Submission
==========
Papers, posters, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops must be submitted
electronically through the submission web site, which will be linked off of
the main web site at iswc.net. Papers and posters will be fully reviewed.
Authors of accepted submissions will have the opportunity to update their
submissions based on the reviews before the final electronic copy is due.

ISWC 2007 requires electronic submission. Reviewers will be instructed to
maintain the confidentiality of all materials for submitted papers
throughout the entire reviewing process. Submissions should contain no
information that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of
publication.

Papers
======
Papers may be submitted as short papers (up to four pages in length) or full
papers (up to eight pages in length). Each paper must be submitted as a
single PDF file in IEEE Computer Science Press 8.5x11 inch two-column format
(described at
http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/cps_forms.html
). Short papers should be the same quality as a long paper but
describe work that is more incremental or more preliminary. Accepted short
papers and full papers will be included in the printed conference
proceedings and presented in the paper sessions. Paper authors are strongly
encouraged to upload a supporting video of at most 5 minutes in length along
with their paper submission.

Papers submitted to ISWC 2007 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.

Please address any questions about paper submissions to the program
committee co-chairs, Bernt Schiele or Tapani Ryhanen.

Posters
=======
Posters are submitted in the form of a summary of up to two pages in length.
Each poster summary must be submitted as a single PDF file in IEEE Computer
Science Press 8.5x11-inch two-column format (described at
http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/cps_forms.html
). Accepted poster summaries will be published in the conference
proceedings and the poster will be presented at the conference poster and
demonstration session.

Please address any questions about poster submissions to the program
committee co-chairs, Bernt Schiele ([log in to unmask])
or Tapani Ryhanen ([log in to unmask]).
