Haptics Symposium 2020

Haptics Symposium 2020 will be held March 28-31, 2020 in the Crystal City neighborhood of Washington DC. Held since 1992, the IEEE Haptics Symposium is a vibrant interdisciplinary forum of research in neuroscience, perception, engineering, and design, focused on sharing new advances in our understanding of the sense of touch, sparking new collaborations, and envisioning a future in which physical interactions are enriched through haptic technologies.

The 2020 conference will include cross-cutting challenge sessions, technical paper sessions presenting the latest advances in haptics, hands-on haptic demonstrations, and work-in-progress posters. An exciting social activities program will provide opportunities for socializing and networking.

New for 2020, a conference journal papers track provides the opportunity for authors to present new findings at the conference for simultaneous publication in IEEE Transactions on Haptics.

EuroHaptics 2020

Eurohaptics is a major international conference on haptics and touch enabled computer applications, and the primary European meeting for researchers in this field.

Eurohaptics 2020 conference, to be held in Leiden, Netherlands, June 17th – 20th, 2020, will provide researchers from academia and industry with an opportunity to present ideas and establish contacts with other haptics researchers from around the world. The conference will be held at City Concert Hall (Stadsgehoorzaal) in Leiden.

Accessibility is the general theme of the conference. We will put in effort to ensure the venue and the conference proceedings will be accessible for everyone. The first day of the conference will be filled with workshops, tutorials and discussions between scientists and users and developers of accessibility tools.
