CFP: Theme Issue on Personal Projection
in Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing

Mobile projection interfaces are no longer fiction. Integrated pico projectors in mobile and wearable devices could make mobile projection ubiquitous within the next few years. Walls, desks, or t-shirts will act as projection surfaces for these kinds of new devices. Several projector phones (mobile phones with built-in projectors) are already commercially available, with additional phones either demonstrated or announced. It is expected that such projector phones will be integrated into many of the next generation mobile handsets. Furthermore, we have seen the first research towards the integration of pico projectors and cameras into various wearable systems, such as pendants or headsets, leading to new form factors, interaction techniques and applications. These mobile projection and camera units have great potential to overcome limitations of mobile and wearable devices, especially their limited input- and output capabilities. They offer a large projection area and are able to project virtual interfaces where multiple people can spontaneously interact with it. The aim of this special issue is to report on current research on mobile projection interfaces and applications in the area of pervasive computing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Applications and interaction techniques for mobile and wearable projection.
- Personal projection in augmented reality.
- Interaction with projected interfaces.
- Projector phones and wearable projectors.
- Multi-user interactions and applications with mobile and wearable projection.
- Multimodal and personalized (mobile) user interfaces using personal projection.
- Guidelines for mobile projection interfaces.
- New application areas of mobile projection.
- Artistic and unusual ways to utilize mobile projection.

The issue is linked to the Ubiprojection 2010 workshop: the first workshop on personal projection via mobile and wearable pico projectors. The workshop was organized in conjunction with Pervasive 2010 and its webpage can be found at
