Full call:

ISWC 2017, the 21st 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 technology.

ISWC invites submissions on everything related to computing on the
body, such as on-body sensing and sensor networks; wearables for
professional use, mobile healthcare, or entertainment; wearability and
interaction; and “on-the-go” uses of mobile devices and systems.

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

"Wearable Systems"
Submissions are sought that describe innovations in wearables as
collections of sensors, processing means (usually but not limited to
smart phones), and  I/O and/or combinations of systems.

"Novel form factors, e-textiles, functional clothing"
ISWC has a long standing history in publishing research that describes
innovative form factors of wearables, along with latest trends in
e-textiles and functional clothing. Authors are invited to submit
groundbreaking research in this area to be considered for publication
at ISWC.

"Data Analytics for Wearables"
A core concern of wearable computing is the analysis of sensor data.
As such ISWC invites submissions that are concerned with the wider
field of data analytics in wearable computing including but not
limited to novel modeling and analysis techniques and its applications
to wearable computing.

"Wearables Applications and User Experiences"
Traditionally Wearable computing has been very focussed on innovative
applications and new user experiences. ISWC 2017 seeks exceptional
contributions that introduce new application domains and novel ways of
interacting with and through wearables.

"Wearables and Society"
With increased popularity and wide uptake of wearable computing comes
great responsibility and new ethical questions to be addressed.
Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts that focus on how
wearables could be used for the public good, and on general issues
around privacy and safety in the context of wearable computing.
