Special Session on Wearable Technology and Applications

Theme and Scope

Wearable technology has rapidly become a key research area in computer sciences and numerous novel IoT applications have emerged in a wide range of domains. The software and sensors embedded in wearables allow measuring users’ vital signs and ambient conditions. Thus, they are highly promising for collecting and analyzing human behavior data. However, in many applications, such as activity pattern recognition, anomaly detection and motion tracking, wearable systems may pose the challenges of maintaining high efficiency in terms of high recognition rate, energy consumption, computational costs and so forth. Therefore, we take wearable technology and applications as the key theme of this special session. Authors are solicited to contribute original, high-quality, unpublished contributions in all aspects of wearable technology and its applications. Submitted manuscripts must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication. Topics of interest of this section include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. Internet of things and wearable technologies
  2. Novel wearable systems and applications
  3. Wireless and body area sensor networks
  4. Pervasive and wearable computing
  5. Sensor signal preprocessing methods
  6. Context-aware applications for wearables
  7. Gesture and activity pattern recognition
  8. Motion tracking and monitoring using wearables
  9. Data mining and machine learning for sensor data
  10. Security, privacy and service for wearable networks
  11. Simulation tools for wearable systems
