Augmented Humans 2021; 22 - 24 February 2021; 


The submission deadline for long and short papers has been extended to December 17th, 2020. Posters, demos, design exhibitions, and doctoral consortium submissions are due on January 22nd, 2021 (AoE).

The Augmented Humans (AHs) International Conference, initially to be held in Rovaniemi, Finland on 22 - 24 February 2021, moves to a virtual conference format. The conference focuses on technologies, design, and studies of physical, cognitive, and perceptual human augmentations. The notion of  augmented humans – in plural, not singular – emphasizes a move towards technologies that enhance not only individual capabilities but also  have the potential for impact on societal scale. This 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 not only one's cognitive abilities but also bodily abilities.

Notification for full and short papers: January 20th, 2021
Notification for posters, demos, design exhibitions, doctoral consortium papers: January 31st, 2021

Conference: February 22 - 24, 2021


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 (AH2020 and AHs 2020) conferences to be held in 2020. AHs (the described in this email, organized by the steering and conference committee below) will be held virtually. The other one (please see this <> will be held in Geneva, Switzerland.

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 humans conference in previous years, all accepted submissions will be published in the ACM Digital Library (acceptance pending) as a volume in its International Conference Proceedings Series with ISBN.
