Personalized wearable ICT systems presented in
fashionable and appealing lifestyle-designs have gained
critical user acceptance, and comprise momentum to bring

market potential for 300 million smart watches in 2014,
and a possible market for more than 200 million smart
eye-wear systems in 2015.
This workshop asks the questions on the potentials and
opportunities of turning these massively deployed wearable
systems to a globe spanning super-organism of socially
interactive personal digital assistants....
