Technical capabilities increase steadily while human evolution is slow. Technical sensors improve while human senses remain largely the same. Many tasks are becoming much easier when our perception is augmented with additional information. In this workshop, we want to bring researchers together that are working on the augmentation and amplification of human perception. For many augmented reality (AR) use cases the fundamental design concept is to improve human perceptual abilities. This area, becoming more and more central to human-computer-, human-data, and human-environment interaction is so far not well researched and we lack conceptual foundations, theoretical models, and best practice examples. This workshop will be a forum to jointly catalog the state of the art and to discuss future directions for amplifying and augmenting human perception in a human centered way.
