Call For Papers

ISWC 2015, the 19th 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: 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. A submissions can be a Full Paper (of maximum 8 pages), a Note (4 pages), or a Brief (2 pages), and are due 17th April, 2015.
