Through the latest technological developments, researchers have the possibility to deploy applications on a larger scale beyond scenarios within the lab environment. For the exploration of such new larger-scale scenarios, enabling hardware and software are essentially required. These include new kinds of embedded and smart devices, personal and wearable computers, infrastructure components, software architectures and models.

The diversity of systems, devices, services and applications places collaborative technologies, contextual awareness and access methods for distributed information in the fore, as users, technologies and appliances are seamlessly integrated in the real world.

This workshop serves as a forum for the exchange of new findings in collaborative technologies and smart appliances deployed in real world environments. It further offers an opportunity for in-depth exploration of selected topics and for the presentation of the most recent research and development findings in these rapidly changing fields.

Technical papers on smart appliances and collaborative technologies are solicited for oral presentation at IWSAWC 2005. Papers reporting new developments in computing with smart devices such as PDAs, wearable computers, and cellular phones, including but not limited to those listed below, are invited.

- Enabling Technologies for Appliances in Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing
- Collaboration concepts and techniques for smart devices
- Infrastructure components for Ubiquitous Computing
- Home and Office Appliances
- Portable Devices and Smart Sensors
- Wireless-phone Computing
- Home Networks and Wearable Networks
- Networks for Ubiquitous Computing
- Security and Privacy Aspects for Ubiquitous Computing
- Wearable Computers and PDAs
- Software and Service Architectures for Home/Smart Appliances
- Location-dependent and context-aware Computing

In addition to regular technical presentations, a session of posters accompanied by demonstrations is held for presenting latest developments and active discussions.
