Haptics 2014 - Call for Papers Deadline

From 30 Sep, 2013 01:00 until 30 Sep, 2013 23:30

At DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston Downtown, Houston, Texas USA

Categories: Deadlines


Welcome to HAPTICS 2014!

The IEEE Haptics Symposium, held since 1992, has become a vibrant forum where psychophysicists, engineers, and designers come together to share advances, spark new collaborations, and envision a future that benefits from rich physical interactions between humans and computers, generated through haptic (force and tactile) devices. In 2014, we will again feature a standalone IEEE-sponsored conference in an extended format, with a full day of tutorials and workshops, and two and a half days of conference activities in a single track format.

As the fourth-largest city in the United States, Houston is home to a respected and energetic arts community, celebrated restaurants, world-renowned theater groups, and a significant international community boasting vivid cultural scenes. Such offerings have landed Houston at the top of Forbes' 2012 list of the "Coolest cities in America" and seventh on the New York Times' list of "46 places to go in 2013," ranking higher than all other U.S. cities. Everything is "bigger in Texas," and Houston is no exception. The Bayou City is known as the energy capital of the world, and is home the world's largest medical center.

We solicit submissions describing advances in:
Haptic interactions and their design
Psychophysics and perception
Biomechanics and motor control
Haptic device design and dynamics
Haptic rendering and modeling
Control system design and analysis
Low-cost, embedded / situated / ubiquitous haptic devices and applications
Systems and networks involving haptic interactions
Human-robot interactions involving touch
Touch sensing
Application of the above, including areas such as education, entertainment and games, rehabilitation and health, art and music, collaboration, computer-aided design and prototyping, skills training, guidance, simulation and data visualization
