ACM WearSys 2017

The 3rd ACM Workshop on Wearable Systems and Applications

Niagara Falls, June 19, 2017

Workshop Program

Workshop Location: Hawk A

8.30 - 9 AM : Registration and Sign in (Meeting Room Entrance Area)

9.00 - 9.10 AM : Welcome from WearSys Chairs

9.10 - 10.00 AM : Keynote: mSelf - Using Mobile Sensors to Self-monitor and Improve Health, Wellness, and Performance, Prof. Santosh Kumar, University of Memphis

Abstract: Mobile sensors can track human states, the surrounding context, daily behaviors, and exposures to risk factors in the natural field environment. Real-time analysis of such sensor data makes it possible to deliver personalized recommendations on mobile devices to improve health, wellness, and performance. The talk will use the example of mobile sensors, software platforms, and recently developed markers of health and wellness to highlight the mobile computing, data modeling, and validation challenges emerging in these mobile sensor systems that are expected to work for each individual in their natural field environment and deliver high-utility with minimal burden. Finally, this talk will highlight novel behavioral privacy challenges emerging in such systems. The talk will end by describing a vision of mobile self (mSelf) and emphasize the need to work in multidisciplinary teams to successfully realize this vision.

11.10 AM - 12 PM: Keynote: Challenges and Opportunities in Wearable Systems, Prof. David Kotz, Dartmouth College

Abstract: Wearable systems offer great promise in application domains as varied as healthcare, eldercare, augmented work, education, athletics, entertainment, parenting, travel, and personal productivity. In this keynote lecture I outline some of these opportunities and identify some of the many challenges we face in developing wearable technology that realize those opportunities. Notably, I anticipate wearable technology raising significant security risks and privacy issues – challenges we must address as we design and develop wearable devices, systems, and applications if we hope to see this technology widely accepted and adopted. Strong (and usable) security mechanisms are essential for safety-critical applications; meaningful privacy protections are essential for systems that accompany us through our private and public life. By raising these concerns today, I seek to ensure the wearable systems of tomorrow will have strong and usable security and privacy properties.
