Call For Papers

Recently there has been a growing interest in consumerization of wrist-worn devices especially smart watches and wrist bands. Many large corporations such as Samsung and Sony already have a commodity smart watch and many other companies are believed to be working on wrist-worn smart devices (e.g., recent Apple watch announcement). Smart-watches and bands are equipped with many sensors, (for example, latest Samsung Gear devices have heart rate, accelerometer, gyroscope, infrared sensors etc.) a processor, communication radios (for example, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi) and a small size display. It is, therefore, possible to capture information about the device user, perform computation and communication using these devices to infer various activities/contexts of the user. Further, they also represent a perfect platform to conduct research on human activity, behavior, and related areas, given the capabilities described above. Moreover, compared to smartphones, wrist-worn smart devices provide richer information about certain user activities (e.g., eating, typing, and sleeping). In most cases, a smart watch is also connected to a powerful smartphone, which could help in drawing many interesting inferences by combining data from both these devices.

We invite paper submissions in the following areas:
- Design, implementation, and evaluation of systems using wrist based smart devices.
- Design and implementation of pervasive applications for wrist-worn smart devices and/or smartphones.
- Description of experiences in data collection and deployments using wrist-worn devices and/or smartphones.
- Feedback, notifications, and alerts using wrist-worn smart devices.
- User behavior analysis on data collected from wrist device and/or smartphones.
- User activity and context recognition using wrist-worn smart devices.
- Achieving energy efficiency and extending battery life of wearable devices.
- Efficient communication between wearable devices and smartphones.
- Privacy aspects related to data collection from wearable wrist-worn devices.
Submission Guidelines
Submitted papers must be original contributions that are unpublished and are not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers should be no more than 6 pages in length and must adhere to IEEE PerCom workshop format (2 column, 10pt font), including references, figures and tables. Please refer to IEEE Computer Society 8.5" x 11" authors kit for formatting guidelines as well as IEEE Latex and Microsoft Word templates.

***Samsung Gear Best Paper Award***
The Samsung Gear award will be given to the best paper presented at the workshop to acknowledge and encourage excellence in research. The awardee will be presented with a certificate and a Samsung Gear at the workshop.
