EuroHaptics 2018 will be held June 13-16 in Pisa, Italy. Initial information can be found at www.eurohaptics2018.org.
Over the last decade, the EuroHaptics conference has grown from an ambitious idea to the primary European meeting for research in the field of human, machine, and computer haptics. The central idea of the meeting has always been interdisciplinarity – bringing together researchers from all fields related to haptics. This has been the original motto at the foundation of the conference in Zurich in 2000 by Matthias Harders and Alan Wing, and has been kept on throughout the subsequent annual events.
Eurohaptics is held annually (since 2005 in odd years in conjunction with the Haptic Symposium) and is a major international conference and the primary European meeting for researchers in the field of human haptic sensing and touch enabled computer applications. This diverse field covers research in areas including, but not limited to, haptic perception, haptic hardware development, through to end applications and users, such as surgical simulation, rehabilitation robotics, and haptic feedback for design and applied arts applications.
The series of Eurohaptics events provides researchers from academia and industry with an opportunity to present ideas, obtain feedback, and establish contacts with other haptics researchers from around the world. Haptic hardware and software developers are also provided with the opportunity to gather information on current theories, as well as to demonstrate their products to a wide audience, and discuss specific requirements first hand with existing and potential customers.
Proposals to organise future meetings are welcomed. An informal expression of interest should be sent to the Secretary of the EuroHaptics Society.
There have been the following meetings of the EuroHaptics conference so far, some of them in conjuction with the Haptic Symposium. Please browse for more information:
