Next Monday and Tuesday, I'll be attending ISWC in Washington D.C. If you read this and are going to the conference, please look out for me and introduce yourself. I'm excited that this year's program seems to focus less on the (sometimes agonizing) details of wearable technology and more on issues of usability, interaction design and context, topics that have been largely ignored at past conferences.
It's probably a little late to be mentioning this, but there's another interesting conference next week in Ottawa. The Technology and the Body conference will take place November 4 - 6 at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. Conference themes include the built environment, medicine, clothing and adornment, body enhancement, athletics, and the body expressive.
- Thanks to Marc for pointing me to the Technology and the Body conference.
