Exploring Augmented Reading Practices and Paper Interfaces in the  
ubiquitous computing age
PaperComp 2010, 1st International Workshop on Paper Computing
Held at Ubicomp 2010 / 26-29 Sept 2010 / Copenhagen, Denmark
Deadline for short papers (4 pages) or abstracts (1 page) is June 25.
Online at


Paper is not dead. Books, magazines and other printed materials can  
now be connected to the digital world, enriched with additional  
content and even transformed into interactive interfaces. Conversely,  
some of the screen-based interfaces we currently use to interact with  
digital data could benefit from being paper-based or make use of  
specially designed material as light and flexible as paper.  In a near  
future, printed documents could become new ubiquitous interfaces in  
our everyday interaction with digital information. This is the dawn of  
paper computing.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers exploring the  
future of printed interfaces and associated practices. It will act as  
a kick-off event for launching a new research community, articulating  
how different research lines form a coherent emerging field. The  
proceedings of the workshop ambition to gather the visions of the most  
active researchers working on augmented reading practices and paper  
interfaces.  Selected authors will be invited to contribute to a  
seminal book entitled “Paper Computing” that will be published in  
2011. Both the content and the innovative format of this book will act  
as an exemplary illustration of the potential of paper computing.


Submissions are welcome regarding all aspects of the subject of print  
in the digital age, including (but not limited to):

* Technology for digitally enhancing paper document and linking  
digital information and paper interfaces: Fiducial markers, Barcodes  
(1D and 2D), cover recognition, page recognition, pen-based  
recognition. Methods for enriching existing paper documents with text  
comments, video, images and sounds inputs.
* Paper-based interfaces. Augmented paper interfaces using camera- 
projector system and other interactive lights equipment.  Combination  
of tangible and paper computing.
* Paper-like interfaces. Specially designed material which should  
ideally be as light and flexible as paper. Paper-like interfaces based  
on flexible display technology. Paper with embedded electronics.
* Studies about products and prototypes using digitally enhancing  
paper document, paper-based and paper-like interfaces. Design of new  
reading devices and interfaces. Ergonomic aspects of paper computing.
* Studies about interactive books, magazines, newspapers, guides,  
children’s book, flyers, cards, etc and associated new interaction  
practices. Studies comparing printed and display interfaces and  
associated reading practices.   Continuous reading practices over  
different interfaces (smartphone, tablet, paper, etc.). Geo- 
localization of reading activities.
* Mobile devices and paper computing.
* Print on Demand technology for Paper Computing.
* Databases and Cloud computing infrastructure supporting paper  
* Studies of particular application areas of paper computing including  
but not limited to : games and home entertainment, pedagogical  
applications, marketing, hospitality, healthcare, tourism, etc.
* Implication for scientific publishing, peer-reviewing process,  
access to scientific information.
* Economic models of paper computing. Implications for libraries and  
* Historical studies about the evolution of printed and paper-based  
* Privacy issues


Papercomp2010 will accept paper submissions in two categories: Paper  
(up to 4 pages) and abstract (1 page)

Accepted papers will have oral presentations at the workshop. Accepted  
abstracts will be presented as posters, videos or interactive  
demonstrations. Authors of accepted abstracts will also have the  
opportunity to make a brief oral presentation during a Poster  
Spotlight session. Authors of selected papers, abstracts, videos and  
demonstration will be invited to contribute to a follow-up book on  
“Paper Computing”.

All submissions and camera-ready papers and abstracts should be sent  
as email attachments in PDF format (only) to: [log in to unmask]
