Call For Papers

ISWC 2020, the 24th annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers, is the premier forum for research on wearable technology and topics related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. ISWC brings together an eclectic and interdisciplinary mix of visionary researchers, developers, designers, artists, manufacturers, and users to share information and advances in wearable technology. Contributions from a wide range of domains — including fashion design, computer science, textile engineering, electrical engineering, optics, human factors, sociology, anthropology, mechanical engineering, and medicine; among others — are encouraged.

ISWC was established as a conference in 1997, building on the success of a workshop the year before at Boeing. ISWC co-located with the International Conference on Pervasive Computing for several years. In 2013 with the merger of Pervasive and UbiComp, which had existed since 1999 and 2002 respectively, ISWC began co-locating with the merged conference.

ISWC accepts contributions of original, unpublished research in three lengths for blind, peer-reviewed manuscripts published and archived in the ACM Digital Library:

Full papers: substantial, rigorous research contributions. From this year onwards, ISWC no longer considers full paper submissions but will instead invite papers published in IMWUT ( for presentation at ISWC which will be jointly held with UbiComp ( Papers that have a clear focus on wearables and have been published in IMWUT Issue 1-3 of 2020 and Issue 4 of 2019, will be invited to ISWC 2020.

Follow the IMWUT Author Guidelines ( for preparing your full papers. The online submissions system is available at:

Notes: novel, rigorous research contributions of smaller scope than full papers. Short papers may reflect a more narrow research question, but should not reflect early-stage (e.g. pilot, under-developed) research, or preliminary technological development without a robust evaluation. Notes should not exceed 4 pages in the 2-column, ACM proceedings format, not counting references.

Briefs: novel research contributions of a narrow scope. May include system or technology development with limited evaluation. Briefs should not exceed 2 pages in the 2-column, ACM proceedings format, not counting references.

Submissions for Notes and Briefs can be made at (On the submissions tab, please select SIGCHI society and ISWC 2020 conference. Then the submission track of ISWC 2020 Briefs and Notes will appear.)
