ISWC 2021, the 25rd annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers, is
the premier forum for research on wearable technology and topics related to
on-body and worn mobile technologies.

ISWC brings together an eclectic and interdisciplinary mix of visionary
researchers, developers, designers, artists, manufacturers, and users to share
information and advances in wearable technology. Contributions from a wide
range of domains (including fashion design, computer science, textile
engineering, electrical engineering, optics, human factors, sociology,
anthropology, mechanical engineering, and medicine; among others) are

ISWC invites submissions on all research related to technology that is worn
on or interacts with the body, both the development and deployment thereof
as well as the impacts and influences on individuals and cultures.
ISWC looks for rigorous research contributions as well as highly creative
