The idea behind the ISWC Student Colloquium is to offer expertise opinion and help to new students and researchers that want to contribute to future wearable computing research, at the main annual event for the field: the International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC).

The ISWC Student Colloquium welcomes work from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform wearable computing, including computer science, engineering, textiles design, sociology, cognitive science and other related fields. Results of experimental or theoretical evaluation are not a prerequisite, since the aim is to encourage the presentation of novel ideas, including recently started PhD proposals, and offer tips and pointers to drive the work towards full-paper quality research.

Students wishing to attend need to contribute a short paper of which they are the first author. Submissions should be in IEEE Computer Science Press format and have a maximum of 3 pages in length. The submissions will be reviewed by a panel of experts on the basis of originality, soundness and scientific merit of the research goals, and the quality of its presentation.

Accepted contributions will be invited to take part in a poster session during the conference, where the participants can present and discuss their ideas with the international wearables research community. The posters will be evaluated again and the best contribution will be awarded a best student proposal prize. The accepted short papers will be published in dedicated proceedings and will be made available electronically to the public as refereed proposal abstracts.

Student Colloquium submissions, and any questions regarding the process, can be submitted by email directly to the Student Colloquium chair, Kristof Van Laerhoven ().
