Abstract Indisputably, paper constitutes a fundamental means for information sharing among people throughout the centuries. Although many believe that paper will be eliminated by the emerging technologies and will stop being an integral part of our everyday life, it can be easily proven that this will not become a reality, at least for the forthcoming years. On the other hand, the idea of augmenting physical paper with technology and digital information has led to the birth of many research efforts in this direction, beginning from the last decade of the previous century. Since then, numerous approaches have been proposed, aiming to benefit from users’ familiarity with paper and the natural interaction fostered by the paper’s affordances. All these approaches have the potential to be widely accepted and applied in everyday life, due to the fundamental properties of paper: it is inexpensive, lightweight and can be easily found anywhere. On the other hand the rise of smart environments and ubiquitous computing provides the opportunity for the creation of new interaction paradigms in the digital world, which resemble those used in everyday activities of the physical world. Furthermore, the opportunity of pervasive access to digital information that approaches such as Ambient Technology can offer to the users increases the potential of engaging everyday objects, like printed matter, in digital interaction. However, there is still a lack of generic and systematic approaches to support the augmentation and interaction with printed matter in the context of intelligent environments. This PhD thesis pursues to define and elaborate a generic framework supporting printed matter augmentation and user interaction with Ambient Intelligence (AmI) technologies in Smart Environments. Aiming to fill the identified gap, an extensible context-aware interaction framework is presented, the InPrinted framework, which enables the integration of printed matter into AmI environments by providing: - natural multimodal interaction with printed matter - an open reference model for printed matter interaction in AmI environments - context aware and anticipation mechanisms for printed matter incorporation in AmI environments - tools and interaction techniques supporting the development of systems and / or applications which offer printed matter augmentation in AmI environments. As a result, the InPrinted framework can constitute a valuable asset, assisting the easy embedment of interaction with printed matter in AmI environments as well as printed matter augmentation, ensuring high quality and robustness. For the assessment and evaluation of the proposed framework with end users, four Ambient Intelligence applications have been implemented and assessed, representing indicative examples from different real life activities. Τhe evaluation iterations carried out in the context of this thesis have led to the conclusion that interaction with augmented printed matter has consistently been positively assessed and has been found to be natural by users.
