The conference is addressed to:

Anynone interested in artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), robotics and other new technologies

Language of the event: English and Polish

HumanTech Summit

About the Conference

The international scientific conference HumanTech Summit aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge on human-technology relations.

The conference will cover a variety of issues, including artificial intelligence (AI), digital transformation, virtual reality (VR), metaverse, robotics, cyborgization, and the Internet of Things. Conference sessions will address not only the role of new technologies in education, medicine, and arts, but also the threats posed by technological omnipresence.

During the session on virtual and augmented reality, the participants will be able to experience VR/AR technologies used in various areas, from medicine to art.

We have invited prominent scientists from all over the world to present the results of their research on human-technology interaction.

During the conference, we will hold a hackathon. Registration is already open!

The event is organized by the HumanTech Center at SWPS University. It is a part of the HumanTech Meetings (HTM) project, which links academia and research with business and industry from Poland and abroad. To date, we have organized 18 HTM online meetings. HumanTech Summit is one of two offline conferences organized as part of the project.

Lectures will be held in English and Polish and will be translated simultaneously.

Please note: Companies/start-ups interested in showcasing their VR/AR/MR products during the morning session on the second day of the conference, please contact us via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Conference Format

HumanTech Summit will be held stationary at SWPS University in Warsaw, but part of the conference will be conducted in virtual reality. Therefore, we will be able to simultaneously demonstrate and discuss the possibilities of today's immersive technologies.

The registration fee is €35 and covers the catering for all coffee and lunch breaks. Online participation is free of charge.

The number of on-site participants is limited to 200.

Conference participants are welcome to attend a networking event on December 9. The entrance fee is €18.

Guidelines for poster presentations: Poster presentations can report research analysis (completed or work-in-progress) or describe emerging ideas. Posters will be displayed on a 180 cm high x 120 cm wide free-standing bulletin board. Thus, the most convenient printed format is vertical (posters can be smaller than the given size). The content should be concise and visually appealing. Please consider including a QR code on your poster that links to a digital version of the poster, study protocol, preprint, or website.
