Over last several years, we have seen the rapid evolution in
smart appliances and devices, PDAs, and wearable computers. In
addition, collaborative computing technologies based on these
devices enables a wealth of new prospective applications. This
workshop offers the opportunity for in-depth exploration of
selected topics and for the presenting the most recent research
and development findings in these rapidly changing fields.

Technical papers on smart devices and wearable computing are
solicited for oral presentation at IWSAWC 2001. Papers reporting
new developments in computing with smart devices such as PDAs,
wearable computers, and cellular phones, including but not
limited to those listed below, are invited.

- Home Networks and Wearable Networks
- Portable Devices and Smart Sensors
- Wearable Computers and PDAs
- Software Architecture for Home/Smart Appliances
- Handheld CSCW
- Wireless-phone Computing
- Location-dependent Computing
- Context-aware Computing
- Pervasive Computing


Submitted technical papers should not be longer than 3000 English
words. The cover page must include title, author(s), address, and
keywords. Submit a PDF or PS file of the paper to the Program
