CfP: The Third Augmented Human International Conference (AH 2012) – Megève, France, March 8th – 9th, 2012

The Third Augmented Human International Conference (AH 2012)
Megève, France, March 8th – 9th, 2012


The third Augmented Human (AH) International Conference will be held in Megève on March 8th and 9th 2012 after being in Tokyo last year. The AH international conference focuses on scientific contributions towards augmenting humans capabilities through technology for increased well-being and enjoyable human experience. As for AH’10 and AH’11, the proceedings of the conference should be published in the ACM Digital Library as a volume in its International Conference Proceedings Series. As the conference venue is an upper-class ski resort with many art fans, a special Augmented Human and Art (AHA) exhibition session open to the public should be organised on March 10th and 11th if enough demonstration and art material are accepted to the conference. The art researchers may choose to put on sale their art material exhibited during the exhibition session.
