IEEE IT Profesional (

Special Issue on Wearable Computing

Submission deadline: 5 March 2015
Publication: September/October 2015

Given the growing popularity of Google Glass, the Apple iWatch, Fitbit, and many other wearable devices, wearable computing is a topic of significant interest. The use of wearables for specific applications, such as healthcare monitoring or elderly support, is becoming a reality. Wearable computing also extends into the workplace — making it safer, more comfortable, and more productive — and the military, with advanced technologies being integrated into suits and clothes for soldiers.

Driven by advances in mobile computing and communications, ambient intelligence, and ubiquitous sensors, wearable computing facilitates a new form of human-computer interaction via small, on-body devices that are always on, ready, and accessible. The "always ready" capability leads to a new form of synergy between humans and computers, offering consistency and multitasking capabilities.

Areas of wearable computing research include user interface design, augmented reality, pattern recognition, and wireless and personal area network technologies. This issue of IT Professional will review wearable computing trends and applications and consider the engineering and operational aspects of wearable computing. We solicit papers covering various topics of interest in wearable computing, including the following:

System design
Personal and enterprise applications
Case studies on organizations embracing wearables
Impact on user interface design, augmented reality, and wireless networks
Integrating wearables into larger systems (such as augmented reality systems, training systems, and platforms for collaborative work)
Behavioral modeling
Management of wearable devices

Cultural and social implications of adopting wearable computing devices
Application areas — such as electronic textiles and fashion
Privacy, personal safety, and quality of life issues
Collective human intelligence
Innovations in and prospects of wearable computing
How wearables can help achieve better outcomes in the military health system

Feature articles should be no longer than 4,200 words (with tables and figures each counting as 300 words) and have no more than 20 references. Illustrations are welcome. For author guidelines, including sample articles see
