Welcome to Ubiprojection 2010, the 1st workshop on personal projection via mobile and wearable pico projectors. The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how mobile and wearable pico projectors could be combined with new user interfaces, interaction techniques and applications. We seek for new ideas, prototypes, and insights as a basis to develop a deeper understanding of the field.
In addition, we will provide an open forum to share information, results, and ideas on current research in this area. This workshop encourages discussion about future topics concerning personal projection. Furthermore, we aim to develop new ideas on how such devices can be exploited for new forms of interaction with the environment.
We will bring together researchers and practitioners who are concerned with design, development, and implementation of new applications and services using personal mobile and wearable projectors in their user interfaces. Moreover, the workshop aims at conveying hands-on experience with current state-of-the-art technology and prototypes through demonstration sessions.
The workshop was held in Helsinki, Finland on 17 May 2010 in conjunction with Pervasive 2010.
