Augmented Humans 2023

About the Conference

The Augmented Humans (AHs) International Conference 2023 will be an in-person event, held in March 2023 in the Mazumdar-Shaw Advanced Research Centre (ARC, University of Glasgow).

The conference focuses 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 a societal scale.

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 other are commonplace, and looking towards the future, many technologies which amplify the human body and mind far beyond the original vision are within reach.

The conference proceedings are planned to be published in the ACM Digital Library as a volume in its International Conference Proceedings Series with ISBN.

Until next year!

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the participants who attended and contributed to the success of the Augmented Humans conference this year. We are truly humbled by the level of engagement and enthusiasm that you brought to this event. Your insightful presentations, posters, demos, and discussions help to shape what this conference is all about.

We would also like to extend our appreciation to those who submitted their valuable scientific work for consideration, as well as to our keynote speaker, Florian Alt, the session chairs, and the student volunteers who all generously gave their time and expertise to make this conference possible. Finally, we hope that you enjoyed the conference dinner and had the opportunity to network and forge new collaborations with your colleagues. Your participation has made this conference a resounding success and we look forward to seeing you again in Australia next year.

Stay tuned for more information regarding AHs '24 soon!
