Call: IEEE World Haptics Conference 2011


IEEE World Haptics Conference 2011
4th Joint Eurohaptics Conference and IEEE Haptics Symposium
June 22-24, 2011, Istanbul, Turkey

Dear Colleagues:

The fourth IEEE World Haptics Conference ( will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from 22-24 June, 2011 (note: tutorials and workshops will be held on June 21, 2011). This is a joint meeting of the EuroHaptics Conference and the IEEE Haptics Symposium and brings together researchers from different disciplines who are interested in all aspects of haptics.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Design of haptic interfaces
  • Tactile displays and sensing
  • Haptic rendering and virtual environments
  • Haptic perception and cognition
  • Biomechanics of touch
  • Haptic guidance and motor control
  • Shared haptics (control, tele-operation, collaboration)
  • Applications of haptics to entertainment, media, medicine,
  • rehabilitation, education, data visualization, art, rapid
  • prototyping, and nano/micro technologies

Submissions are sought in the following categories:

A) Technical Papers: All technical papers are peer-reviewed and then accepted for oral/poster presentation or rejected. Authors can also submit a video supplement with their paper. Papers and videos will appear both in the USB memory stick and will be posted on IEEE Xplore.
