1st Global Conference: Augmentation
Wednesday 3rd September – Friday 5th September 2014
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom
Call for Presentations
Augmented humans often star in our favourite science fictions: from the cyberpunk heroes of William Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy to the villainous Darth Vader of George Lucas's Star Wars, fictional augmented characters teach the viewer what it means to live augmented lives. And yet, cyborgs and other types of augmented individuals are not just found in science fiction.
