CALL FOR PAPERS: UBICOMP 2016 Workshop on Wearables for Sports

in conjunction with ACM UbiComp 2016
Heidelberg, Germany

Submission deadline: June 17, 2016

Workshop date: September 12, 2016


Wearables are becoming mainstream technology, however there is still room for improvement in the sports domain of this
field. Monitoring performance and collecting large scale data are of high interest among athletes - amateurs and
professionals alike. The current state-of-the art wearable solutions for sports analysis are able to provide individual
statistics to the user, however they have shortcomings in certain aspects, such as isolating and visualizing important
information for the user, beyond statistics. This workshop focuses on the application of wearable technology in sports.
We will explore novel ideas and application scenarios of how sensors and actuators are capable of supporting athletes in
monitoring and improving their performance. We will discuss the design space of the domain by bringing together experts
from various communities and exchanging ideas from different perspectives on wearables for sports applications.
Participants will collaboratively produce sports related prototype applications.

The aim of the workshop is to enable participants to collaboratively design and implement their own solutions for
wearable systems in the sports domain. The participants will be guided through the development of a mobile application
which uses data from external IMMU sensors. With this hands-on workshop, researchers can learn how to create an
individualized wearable system for their ongoing or future projects. For practitioners, the skillset that is conveyed
in the workshop may become a valuable basis for product development and prototyping. Moreover, by bringing together
participants with a variety of backgrounds and goals, the workshop provides a platform for interdisciplinary
cooperation and networking.


We are looking for participants with a variety of backgrounds; including hardware development, wearables for sports
applications, algorithm experts, designers, HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) experts, as well as athletes and coaches.
We aim to merge these expertise areas to enable idea generation and collaboration. We will select participants based
on the relevance and quality of their work. Participation will be limited to 20 people to allow sufficient hardware
and an efficient working environment.

We encourage the applicants to submit their latest research results, relevant to this workshop, in a 2 - 4 page paper.
Accepted papers presenting research will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Alternatively, a 2-4 page paper outlining a novel idea which fits the scope of this workshop may be submitted. These
idea papers will serve to reserve a place in the workshop, however will not be included in the ACM Digital Library.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:
- New applications for wearable devices in sports
- Novel sensors or actuators for sport
- Insightful overview of wearables in sports
- Novel algorithms with applications in sports
- More sophisticated visualization
- More intuitive channels of interaction and feedback
