Industry@ISWC 12 call


Industry@ISWC will provide a snapshot of cutting edge research in the use of wearable computing in industrial, commercial and professional environments.
We seek contributions on real-world applications of wearable computing such as best practice reports, pilot studies, evaluations and presentations of new technology.
With the proliferation of mobile technology in the workplace, wearable computing research can offer a valuable contribution to the usability of mobile solutions such as the use of context information to inform devices and services of the current task and user situation, relieve professionals of tedious and repetitive information entry tasks and increase worker safety in complex and hazardous environments.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia, professional hardware- and software developers and current and future users of wearable computing to stimulate the application of wearable computers in professional environments.

To this end original contributions are sought in relevant areas including (but not limited to):

  • Activity and context recognition
  • Sensing, sensors and sensor networks
  • User interfaces
  • Wearable Augmented Reality
  • Evaluation methods
  • Social and medical aspects
  • Wearable computer systems and software engineering
  • Integration technologies including textile electronics
  • Industrial case studies and business cases

Contributions by industrial partners are highly welcome; hardware manufacturers and software developers are encouraged to participate in this workshop.
