About the book

New Frontiers in Wearable Technologies is a compilation of the latest advancements in wearable technologies from
 a multi-pronged approach. The pervasive computing paradigm is at a crossroads where never before computing
 has been so much embedded within the user. Recent developments in sensor technologies, wireless protocols
integration, and AI have empowered the citizen towards a smart citizen with a high degree of autonomy and varying
computing capabilities from one context to another.

Moreover, software engineering has evolved too to allow lightweight programming and full-stack coding of those sensors. The network itself is today viewed as a programming platform, thus wearable devices are no more stand-alone and do not operate in a vacuum. This book aims at attracting authors from academia, the industry, research institutions, public and private agencies to provide the findings of their recent achievements in the field, but also visionaries who foresee the future of wearable technologies in the coming decades.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
