Call For Papers

Designing wearable technology encouraging healthier lifestyles is a cross-disciplinary challenge that requires combining knowledge from different domains such as fashion design, human factors and ergonomics, human-computer interaction, psychology, electronics and computer science.

The main goals of the workshop are to establish a multidisciplinary community interested in bridging the gap among different research domains in the specific topic of the workshop, as well as, laying the foundations for the establishing of multifaceted guidelines for the design of wearables for behavior change.

Researchers from academia and industry are invited to submit 4-8 page position papers in SIGCHI Extended Abstract format that will be peer-reviewed by the workshop program committee.

We solicit stimulating and original ideas. We further encourage papers that propose new research directions or could generate lively debate at the workshop.
The workshop major topics comprehend and are not limited to:
- Persuasive (wearable) technologies and services: design methods and frameworks
- Behavior change approaches based on wearable devices
- Interaction design for smart garments and accessories
- Case studies and applications of wearables for behavior change
- Psychological and ethnographic investigations (e.g., user acceptance)
- Ergonomics requirements for long-time wearing (intensive use)
- Fashion design for wearable devices

The position papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library and supplemental proceedings of the ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2015) and the International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC 2015) conferences.
Please, note that as requirement to participating at the workshop at least one author of each accepted position paper must attend the workshop.

The organizers:
Maurizio Caon (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland)
Stefano Carrino (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland)
Elena Mugellini (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland)
Alexandra Rosewall Lang (University of Nottingham)
Sarah Atkinson (University of Nottingham)
Marco Mazzola (Politecnico di Milano)
Giuseppe Andreoni (Politecnico di Milano)
