                                                         Workshop on Wearable
Systems and Applications (WearSys 2015)

 To be held in conjunction with MobiSys 2015 at Florence, Italy

The off-the-shelf availability of wearable devices and the commercial
proliferation of wearable gadgets are shaping new directions for mobile and
wireless systems research. Mobile systems and applications research is
increasingly adopting wearable devices for primary and auxiliary sensing.
This is an exciting time where wearables are also seeming to spearhead
advancements in technology through inter-disciplinary research among a
broad spectrum of disciplines apart from mobile wireless, such as health,
fashion, energy, just to name a few.

The 1st ACM Workshop on wearable systems and applications, WearSys, is
focused on how wearable technologies can shape mobile computing, systems
and applications research. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum
to bring together researchers and design experts to discuss how wearable
technologies have, and can, complement mobile systems research, and
vice-versa. It also aims to provide a launchpad for bold and visionary
ideas for wearable systems research. We hope that this workshop will serve
as a catalyst for advancements in mobile and wearable systems technology as
well as present a clear sense of direction for the research community to
proceed in this space.

Call For Submissions (paper, poster, demo)
The Workshop on Wearable Systems and Applications, WearSys 2015, is focused
on wearable technologies that can shape mobile computing, systems and
applications research. WearSys will provide a venue for presenting current
research and technology trends, and debating future research agendas of
wearable technology. It will provide a forum for discussing innovative
and/or disruptive ideas in the wearables space that have potential for
significant impact in mobile computing and wireless research.

We solicit submissions (papers, posters and demos) that present
preliminary research in prototyping a wearable system, experience in
designing a novel wearable technology, survey of useful tools for designing
wearable systems and applications. We also encourage position papers that
propose new directions for research or advocate disruptive design ideas and
project applications, and submissions that can help bootstrap exploration
of the wearable design space by the broader mobile systems community. In
this founding year of the workshop, the focus areas include, but are not
limited to,

   - Smart Glass, wearable imaging, projection devices
   - Wearable fashion (eg. Smart watch, amulets, etc)
   - Capacitive sensing and On-body communication
   - Wearable health and fitness activity tracking
   - Ubiquitous Input Devices
   - Novel energy management solutions (eg. swappable batteries, solar
   - Context sensitive notification delivery
   - Wearable biometrics for payment and authentication
   - Haptics and cognitive prosthetics
   - Body energy harnessing
   - Brain-interfaces
   - Electromyography (EMG) interfaces
   - Novel combinations of 3D printing and Wearables (eg. integration
with custom
   3D printed sensors/enclosures)
   - Wearable infrastructure and toolkits

Workshop papers will be included with the MobiSys 2015 proceedings and
posted in the ACM Digital Library.
