Eurohaptics 2016

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

Eurohaptics 2016 conference, to be held in London, 04-17 July 2016, 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 in central London at Imperial College, close to Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the V&A Museum.

Eurohaptics 2016 will cover all aspects of haptics, including neuroscience, psychophysics, perception, engineering, computing, interactions, virtual reality and the arts. Papers have been welcomed across a wide range of topics in fundamental science and engineering, as well as end-application in areas including medical and surgical simulation, skills training, rehabilitation robotics, collaborative human-robot interactions, communication and haptic feedback for design and the arts.

The conference will provide researchers from academia and industry an opportunity to present new ideas and establish contacts with colleagues from around the world. An important part of the conference will be the opportunity to demonstrate and experience new haptic hardware and software, and discuss ideas with researchers and developers to gain information about the latest haptic research. Proceedings of Eurohaptics 2016 will be published in Lecture notes in computer science by Springer.

The following topics will be covered at the conference:

  • Neuroscience of touch
  • Psychophysics and perception
  • Biomechanics and motor control
  • Human-robot haptic interaction
  • Haptic HCI
  • Multimodal interaction
  • Haptic interfaces design
  • Virtual reality
  • Haptic device design and dynamics
  • Haptic rendering and modeling
  • Control system design and analysis
  • Haptic collaboration and telerobotics
  • Medical applications
  • Art & design applications
  • Affective haptics
