                Announcement and Call for Workshops
                             ISWC 2014

             International Symposium on Wearable Computers
            September 13-17, 2014, Seattle (Washington, US)

ISWC 2014 invites proposals for the workshop program of the 18th 
International Symposium on Wearable Computers. Workshops provide a forum 
for attendees with common interests and are a great opportunity for 
community building. They can be one or two days in length, and vary in 
size and format depending on their objectives. All workshops will be held 
on Saturday, September 13, 2014 and Sunday, September 14, 2014 before the 
main conference.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic of relevance to Wearable 
Computing. There are many ways in which workshops can enrich a conference, 
and we are aiming to accommodate diverse opportunities for the ISWC 
community to engage. This includes, but is not limited to:

- Workshops that provide a forum to share advances in an area of special 
interest to the community. Such workshops would typically solicit original 
research contributions and involve a peer-review process for submitted 
papers, but would be open to wider attendance. ALL accepted workshop 
papers will be included in the ACM digital library and the supplemental 
- Workshops that aim to gather a group of researchers for a focused 
activity, such as hands-on prototyping, or joint development of a 
cross-disciplinary research agenda. Such workshops typically involve a 
selection process for attendance, but not necessarily a solicitation of 
material for publication.

Should you wish to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal prior to the 
submission deadline, feel free to contact the Chairs of the Workshops 
Program at workshop at ISWC.net.

1. The proposal should be prepared as a document of no more than 4 pages 
in SIGCHI papers format, and must in addition include a CfP (Call for 
Papers, or Call for Participation). It must describe the topic, rationale 
and objectives for the workshop, the organizers’ backgrounds, an estimate 
of expected attendance (and whether participation will be limited), and a 
detailed plan for conducting the workshop (including any plans for 
pre-workshop preparation and/or post-workshop follow up). Upon acceptance, 
the workshop description is expected to be revised and adapted for 
inclusion in the supplemental proceedings.

2. All workshops have the option to solicit contributions for inclusion in 
the ACM Digital Library and supplemental proceedings of the conference. 
Workshop organizers must clearly describe in their proposal whether they 
wish to have workshop contributions published in this way. Organizers can 
specify page numbers for papers they solicit, but all workshop papers must 
be in the SIGCHI archival format, and be ready for inclusion into ACM 
digital library and the supplementary proceedings by ***July 6, 2014***.

Workshops will be reviewed by a jury of experts who will evaluate the work 
based on how compelling they expect it to be to ISWC attendees. The jury 
will consider several factors during the selection process, including:

1. The potential for the topic of the workshop to generate stimulating 
discussions and useful results.
2. The expected interest level in the topic in the community.
3. The organizers’ ability to demonstrate in the proposal a well-organized 
process and plan for the workshop.
4. The overall balance of topics in the Workshops program. If multiple 
submissions are received on the same or similar topics, the organizers may 
be encouraged to merge them.

The organizers of each workshop are expected to:

1. Publicize the workshop with a call for participation via the ISWC 
website and email
2. Set up a web site for the workshop containing more details on the 
workshop, including CFP, workshop format, plans for publication (if any), 
participants, program, etc. In particular, the CFP should clearly specify 
that accepted papers must be in the SIGCHI papers format and will be 
published in the ISWC 2014 adjunct proceedings.
3. Encourage potential participants to submit papers
4. Work with the ISWC Publication Chairs to include workshop papers in the 
ACM digital library and the adjunct proceedings
5. Work with the ISWC Workshop Chairs to arrange the workshop
6. Actively run the workshop

Note that workshops are an integral part of the ISWC conference. Hence, 
workshop organizers and attendees are expected to register for the 
workshop in addition to the conference.

Please email your proposal directly to the workshop chairs at 
workshop at ISWC.net. The deadline for submission is ***March 28, 2014***. 
The submission should be a single PDF file, including both the proposal 
(max. 4 pages) and an appended CFP. Please download and use the required 
templates to prepare the proposal.

1. Louise Barkhuus, University of Stockholm
2. Kai Kunze, Osaka Prefecture University
3. Anind K. Dey, Carnegie Mellon University

If you have any further inquiries, please contact workshop at ISWC.net
