Conference Call for Papers

iWOAR is conference-like workshop is initiated and organized by the Fraunhofer IGD and the University of Rostock. It offers scientists, interested parties, and users in the area of sensor-based activity recognition and interaction the possibility to an exchange of experiences and a presentation of best-practice examples, as well as technical and scientific results. The workshop focuses on technologies for human activity recognition and interaction via inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes etc.) and their scientific applications.

iWOAR aims to foster the relationship between academia and industry. We strongly encourage industry participants to present challenges, ideas, experiences, novel applications, and studies of existing methods. Accepted industrial papers will be presented in an industrial session during the workshop.
