The University of Manitoba will be hosting AH2020, the 11th Augmented Human (AH) International Conference on May 27-29, 2020.

The Augmented Human (AH) international conference focuses on scientific contributions towards augmenting human capabilities through technology for increased well-being and enjoyable experiences. 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).

Important Dates (All deadlines by end of day CET)

January 29, 2020: Deadline submission

March 31, 2020: Author acceptance/rejection

April 10, 2020: Camera-ready deadline and at least one paid full conference registration per accepted paper

May 27-29 2020: Conference at University of Manitoba

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: http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html

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 https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm to choose CCS Concepts for your paper. For detailed instructions, refer to the CCS 2012 page: https://dl.acm.org/ccs/ccs.cfm?id=0&lid=0&nav=w

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.

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.
