The off-the-shelf availability of wearable devices and the commercial proliferation of wearable gadgets are shaping new directions for mobile and wireless systems research. Mobile systems and applications research is increasingly adopting wearable devices for primary and auxiliary sensing. This is an exciting time where wearables are also seeming to spearhead advancements in technology through inter-disciplinary research among a broad spectrum of disciplines apart from mobile wireless, such as health, fashion, energy, just to name a few.

The 1st ACM Workshop on wearable systems and applications, WearSys, is focused on how wearable technologies can shape mobile computing, systems and applications research. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to bring together researchers and design experts to discuss how wearable technologies have, and can, complement mobile systems research, and vice-versa. It also aims to provide a launchpad for bold and visionary ideas for wearable systems research. We hope that this workshop will serve as a catalyst for advancements in mobile and wearable systems technology as well as present a clear sense of direction for the research community to proceed in this space.
