Call for Papers

The Augmented Humans (AHs) International Conference 2023
March 12-14, 2023
Glasgow, UK

Submission deadlines:
Full/short [apers:  December 2, 2022
Posters/demos and workshop proposals:  January 13, 2023

Hi everyone,

The Augmented Humans (AHs) International Conference will be held in Glasgow, UK in the Mazumdar-Shaw Advanced Research Centre (ARC, University of Glasgow) on March 12-14th, 2023, focusing on physical, cognitive, and perceptual augmentation of humans through digital technologies. The plural – humans – emphasizes the move towards technologies that enhance human capabilities beyond the individual and will have the potential for impact on societal scale.

There are many ways to participate in the conference. [Below and on the conference website] you can find the tracks offered by Augmented Humans in addition to their respective deadlines and notification dates. Of particular note is the full/short paper deadline coming up on the 2nd December 2022.

For the first time this year, dedicated workshops will also be part of the conference. The deadline for workshop proposals can be found below. The approved workshops and their corresponding websites will also be linked here in due time.

The idea of augmenting the human intellect has a long tradition, the term was coined by Douglas Engelbart in 1962 [1]. Today, many of the technologies envisioned by Engelbart and others are commonplace, and looking towards the future, many technologies which amplify the human body and mind far beyond the original vision are within reach.

Many of the people involved in this conference have shaped the conference and the field in their roles as program chairs, steering committee members or authors at previous augmented human conferences. As in the augmented human conference in previous years, the conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library as a volume in its International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) with ISBN.
