Call For Papers

**** Call for Submissions ****

The ACM Workshop on wearable systems and applications (WearSys) is focused on wearable technologies that can shape mobile computing, systems and applications research. WearSys will provide a venue for presenting current research and technology trends, and debating future research agendas of wearable technology. It will provide a forum for discussing innovative ideas that have potential for significant impact. We solicit papers of six or fewer pages that present preliminary research in prototyping a wearable system, experience in designing a novel wearable technology, or survey of useful tools for designing interdisciplinary wearable systems and applications. We also encourage position papers that propose new directions for research or advocate disruptive design ideas and project applications. We also encourage submissions that can help bootstrap exploration of the wearable design space by the broader mobile systems community. The focus areas include, but not limited to:

- Smart Glass, wearable imaging, projection devices
- Wearable fashion (Smartwatch, wristbands, amulets, body suits)
- Capacitive sensing and On-body communication
- Wearable health and fitness activity tracking
- Batteryless sensing and systems for wearables
- Novel energy management solutions (e.g., swappable batteries, solar harvesting)
- Ubiquitous Input Devices
- Context sensitive notification delivery
- Wearable biometrics for payment and authentication
- Haptics and cognitive prosthetics
- Body energy harnessing
- Brain-interfaces
- Electromyography (EMG) interfaces
- Novel combinations of 3D printing and wearables (e.g., integration with custom 3D printed sensors/enclosures)
- Wearable infrastructure and toolkits

Workshop papers will be included with the MobiSys proceedings and posted in the ACM Digital Library. *All accepted papers will be considered for the Best Paper Award and we will award one at the conference.*

**** Important Dates ****

Submission deadline (paper, position): April 7th, 2019 (11:59:59pm AOE)
Notification of acceptance: April 27th, 2019
Camera-ready: May 1st, 2019
Workshop date: June 21st, 2019

**** Submission Guidelines ****

We solicit submissions of ongoing and works with preliminary results that can generate significant interest and discussions at the workshop. Full paper submissions must be limited to 6 pages including references. Any topic related to Wearable systems and its Applications is in scope and is welcome for submission. We solicit two types of submissions:

*Full Papers*: Full paper submissions should be limited to 6 pages including references.

*Position papers*: We seek short descriptions (2 pages incl. references) of early-stage research ideas in general, but in particular those that point to future directions for the field, novel applications (especially novel applications/designs for wearables), or identify technologies that are ready for market adoption. The last case can be thought of as pitching a startup idea and making arguments for market adoption, though not a full business plan. Submission's title must be prefixed with "Position:".

All submissions must be original work not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. In accordance with MobiSys guidelines, WearSys will follow a double-blind submission policy. Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines at:

Your submission must be in PDF. We will not accept the papers in any other format.
