Sketches will be peer-reviewed and published in the regular proceedings. Sketches must be in English, not exceed two (2) pages in length. Accepted Sketches will have poster presentations. Sketches electronically submitted as pdf files will be made available to participants on the CD Conference Proceedings.

  • LaTeX format

If work reported in the Sketches is related to a Hands-On Demo also to be submitted to the Conference (see below), this should be explicitly stated in the Sketches abstract. Indeed, such practice is strongly encouraged.

Instructions for submission of Hands-On Demos and Art Gallery

Hands-on Demonstrations are the best way to present effectiveness of haptic interfaces. Proposals for the demos should include video and a one-page description. The conference will provide basic infrastructure for the accepted demos. Authors of the Papers/Sketches are encouraged to submit demos. Demos without Papers/Sketches publication will also be welcome.

In 2007, the World Haptics Conference includes for the first time, an exhibition of haptic-related art as part of the hands-on demonstrations. This exhibition is named "Art Gallery." It will be held in a separate room and be open to public. Submissions to the Art Gallery are reviewed in the Hands-on Demo category. Please check the box in the profile. This exhibition will expand the inter-disciplinary nature of the conference.

A concise abstract (one page max.) describing the demo purpose, organization, and equipment, possibly including pictures and other explanatory material, should be submitted (deadline: January 25, 2007). The Corresponding Author's name(s), affiliations, postal and email address should be included.
In addition to the abstract, a MS-Excel file of hands-on demo profile form describing requirements and preferences of demo booth should be submitted (deadline: January 25, 2007).

Form and Style Files (same as Papers, but the length should be 1 page) for submissions are available here:

  • Excel format for the demo profile
  • MS Word format
  • LaTeX format

Should the demo be related to work presented in a paper or sketch of the Conference, please mention this explicitly.

    Authors of accepted papers will be assigned by the Program Committee a type of presentation considered most suited to the paper contents. Presentation types foreseen for accepted manuscripts are short talks, long talks, or Sketches (a Hands-On Demo and Art Gallery is welcome to be connected with any of these).
