Augmented Humans 2020; 16-17 March 2020; Kaiserslautern, Germany

The submission deadline for papers is Jan, 9th, 2020

The Augmented Humans (AHs) International Conference will be held in
Kaiserslautern, Germany, on March 16-18, 2020, focusing on physical,
cognitive, and perceptual augmenting 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.

The idea of augmenting the human intellect has a long tradition, as this
term was coined by Douglas Engelbart in 1962, but it becomes now realistic
to create usable technologies that augment and even amplify the human body
and mind.

If you are interested to be part of the program committee, please email the
program chairs.

Deadline for all Submissions: Jan, 9th, 2020

Author Acceptance/Rejection : Feb 6th, 2020

Conference: March 16-17, 2020


If you are interested to be part of the program committee, please email the
program chairs. We expect for members in the program committee a
demonstrated expertise in the field, e.g. by having co-authored several
papers in this area.


After 10 years of the augmented human conference there was some
disagreement of how to move the conference forward. As this dispute was not
resolved, this resulted in two AH2020 conferences to be held in 2020. One
(the described in this email, organized by the steering and conference
committee below) will be held in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The other one
(please see this will be held in
Winnipeg, Canada.

Many of the people involved in this conference have shaped as conference
and program chairs and authors the field and the previous augment human
conference. As in the augmented human conference in previous years, the
conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library
(acceptance pending) as a volume in its International Conference
Proceedings Series with ISBN.
