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.
Submitting your research requires the author to prepare a paper using the ACM SIGCHI Paper Format. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:
Full paper – 4 to 10 pages (including references and appendix).

Accepted submissions will be published in the iWOAR 2020 Proceedings online in the ACM Digital Library.
Selected excellent papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their workshop submission for a special issue in the MDPI Sensors Open Access Journal.
The conference will be held at the Fraunhofer IGD in Rostock. Rostock can be reached over railroad connections offered daily several times from Berlin, Hamburg or Frankfurt (airports TXL, HAM, FRA). Additional flights are possible to Berlin, Hamburg or Frankfurt (airports TXL, HAM, FRA). From there you can reach by a hired car, the train or by a shuttle service (approx. 40 EUR) to Rostock.The Fraunhofer IGD in Rostock is located close to the central train station of Rostock.
