Conference Call for Papers

ISWC 2020 is the premier conference for Wearable Computing. ISWC 2020 is collocated with the 2020 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2020) with shared Workshops and Tutorials.

ISWC invites submissions on all research related to technology that is worn on or interacts with the body, both the development and deployment thereof as well as the impacts and influences on individuals and cultures. ISWC looks for rigorous research contributions as well as highly creative ideas.

While this call focuses specifically on research contributions, interested parties should be aware that other submission categories are also open for design innovation, system demonstrations, and interactive workshop formats (see for more information).

Areas Of Interest Include (But Are Not Limited To):
Displays, mobile augmented reality optics (freeform optics, lightguides, holographic and diffractive approaches)
Haptics and actuators
Sensing the body (movement, behaviour, physiology)
Sensing the eye (gaze, patterns of looking, eye-computer interaction)
Sensing the brain (wearable fNIRS, EEG, brain-computer interfaces)
System architectures (networked and local), ad-hoc and mobile systems
Manufacturing of wearable technologies
Smartphone- and smartwatch-based systems and applications
Power sources and management, thermal management
Wearables and smart cities
Cyber-physical systems, closed-loop sensing/actuation systems
