The International Workshop on the Future of Books and Reading in Human-Computer Interaction at NordCHI 2016


Gothenburg, Sweden, 24 October 2016.

Interactive Technology is changing the reading experience and book design fundamentally. While the invention of industry-scale printing changed books into a mass product, interactive technology enables radically new reading experiences. Books can have arbitrary form factors and can adjust their visual representation in accordance to the environment and users' needs. The aim of this workshop is to explore and exchange ideas on topics emerging in human-computer interaction for book reading experiences. In particular, we will discuss the use of emerging interactive technologies, such as Augmented Reality and we will also elaborate on various methodologies that can be used to evaluate content, and how it can be used to inspire, support and enrich the reading experience.

Paper Submission/Topics:
Participants are required to write a paper (two pages in the SIGCHI 2014 format) about their work that addresses a range of topics on the future of books and reading in HCI, including (but not limited to) the following: 

- Visionary interactive book experiences.
- Sensory books, reading experiences supported with special materials.
- Accessories and inserted gadgets, altered vision in books.
- Interactive books that support reading in special needs.
- Interactive books that support creative thinking, cognition and narrative development especially in children.
- Spatial transformations during interactive reading experiences.
- The pros and cons of various interactive books and methodologies used.
- The influence of novel book representations on understanding and cognitive processes.
- Evaluation methods and approaches for interactive books and reading experiences.
