Final Call for Papers (CFP)
12th Augmented Human International Conference (AH2021)

Online via Zoom video-conference
May 27-28 2021

Proceedings published in the ACM ICPS Digital Library!

The 12th Augmented Human (AH) International Conference will happen online
via Zoom on May 27-28, 2021 due to the coronavirus risks although initially
planned to be at the University of Geneva.

The Augmented Human (AH) international conference focuses on scientific
contributions towards augmenting human capabilities through technology for
increased well-being and enjoyable experiences. Once again we welcome
industrial contributions. Hopefully, some contributions will also help to
fight the coronavirus. For example, innovations have been made on masks
such as the Precimask. We have strengthened the program committee
specialized in health, rehabilitation, and medical research because
technology without medical ethics can do more harm than good in the long
term. As in previous years, the conference proceedings will be published in
the ACM Digital Library as a volume in its International Conference
Proceedings Series (ICPS). Extended versions of accepted papers will be
again considered for the Springer Augmented Human Research Journal.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Bionics and Biomechanics
Exoskeletons and Super Human Technologies
Muscle Interfaces and Implanted Interfaces
Augmented and Mixed Reality
Brain-Computer Interfaces and Artificial Intelligence
Interactions between Augmented Humans and Smart Cities
Wearable Computing and Ubiquitous Computing
Augmented Fashion, Art, and Tourism
Smart Objects, Smart Textiles and IoT Augmenting Humans
Augmented Sports and Serious Games
Assistive Augmentation, Rehabilitative Interfaces and Games
Alternative or Novel Feedback Modalities
Interfaces, Services and Applications for Human Enhancement
Augmented Healthcare, Quality of Life & Well-being
Human Augmentation, Sensory Substitution and Fusion
Holograms, HMDs and Smart Glasses
Hardware and Sensors for Augmented Human Technologies
Safety, Ethics, Trust, Privacy and Security Aspects of Augmented Humanity
Human-Factor Study, Field Study and User Study of Augmented Human

Important Dates (All deadlines by end of day CET)
March 19, 2021: Final deadline submission
March 31, 2021: Author acceptance/rejection
April 10, 2021: Camera-ready deadline and at least one paid full conference
registration per accepted paper
May 27-28 2021: Conference at the University of Geneva (or online via

Submissions shall be made to the conference management system via the
following link:

At least 3 double-blind reviews per paper will be done. All papers must be
original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
At least one author per accepted paper will have to attend the conference
to present their work and each accepted paper must have at least one paid
full conference registration.

Accepted manuscripts for all submission categories will be published in the
ACM digital library. All submissions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings
template on this page:
Among the various ACM paper templates, make sure that you use the “SigConf”
version, i.e., use “sample-sigconf.tex” if you use LaTeX, and
“ACM_SigConf.docx” if you use MS Word for preparing your manuscript. In
addition, make sure that you use the 2012 ACM Computing Classification
System (CCS) at to choose CCS Concepts for
your paper. For detailed instructions, refer to the CCS 2012 page:

Demo submissions will need to provide installation information at the
conference venue, such as spatial dimension and floor plan, lighting
conditions (e.g., dim lighting, IR interference, etc.), sound conditions,
number of participants that can be accommodated at the same time, time to
install and uninstall, etc.

The poster session is a good venue to get feedback on early-stage works
that are not yet published. The submission must be in the form of a
two-page abstract. Supplementary materials, such as video clips are
encouraged but not mandatory. The authors must bring an A0-sized poster to
be displayed during the poster sessions of the conference.

Pitch presentations are well suited for industrial products, who want to
showcase their product at the conference, have it peer-reviewed and
published in the proceedings.

We encourage authors to submit supporting video material in addition to the
PDF submission. Authors of all accepted papers will also be invited and
encouraged to submit to the demo sessions. All accepted long papers will be
recommended for publication in the Springer Augmented Human Research (AHR)
Journal with sufficiently newly added content and a lighter review process
than for regular AHR Journal submission.
