Exploring the Design Space of Assistive Augmentation
(Workshop on 12th March 2023 at the Augmented Humans Conference )
Assistive Augmentation has been proposed as 'user interfaces and interactions that seamlessly integrate with a user’s mind, body and behaviour, providing an enhanced perception' [1, 2].
We believe carefully designed Assistive Augmentation can empower people constrained by impairments to live more independently again and even extend one's perceptual and cognitive capabilities beyond the ordinary. However, a systematic exploration of the design space of Assistive Augmentation has not been done yet.
As such, the aim of this workshop is to discuss two aspects of Assistive Augmentation forming a design space (see Figure 1).
Call for Participation
To participate in the workshop, please submit one of the following two options:
Short paper up to 4 pages (including references) describing a project, work-in-progress, or position statement related to the workshop theme.
Description of an interactive prototype of up to 2 pages (including references) that you would like to demonstrate at the workshop.
Submissions will be reviewed by the organising committee and selected for invitation based on the relevance to the workshop theme and the ability to foster discussion at the workshop.
Submission deadline: 15th February 2023 (AoE)
Decision Notifications: 20th February 2023 (AoE)
