Enter The ISWC Design Competition!


ISWC 2013, the seventeenth annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers, is (and I quote) “the premier forum for wearable computing and issues related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. ISWC 2013 will bring together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and related professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing.” The event is held September 9-12 in Zurich, Switzerland.
