EuroHaptics

The annually held Eurohaptics conference 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. Eurohaptics 2012 will be held in Tampere, Finland.

Haptic Symposium

The Symposium on Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environments and Teleoperator Systems, commonly referred to as the "Haptics Symposium" is a annual conference bringing together researchers in diverse engineering and human science disciplines who are interested in the design, analysis, and evaluation of systems that display haptic (force and touch) information to human operators. The Haptic Symposium 2012 will be held at the Sheraton Wall Centre Vancouver, Canada, on March 4-7 (Sunday-Wednesday), 2012. Please follows this link for further details on the conference.

Past conferences

WorldHaptics11

WorldHaptics 2011 continued the success of WorldHaptics series and was held in Istanbul, Turkey, on June 21-24, 2011. World Haptics 2011 was the 4th joint symposium between Eurohaptics and the Haptics Sympoisum, and is sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the Technical Committee on Haptics. Its proceedings will be placed in IEEE Xplore.

WorldHaptics09

WorldHaptics 2009 was a great success and was held in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, on March 18-20, 2009. World Haptics 2009 was the 3rd joint symposium between Eurohaptics and the Haptics Sympoisum, and is sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and the Technical Committee on Haptics. Its proceedings will be placed in IEEE Xplore.

WorldHaptics07

After the first successful edition held in Pisa in 2005, WorldHaptics 2007 was held on March 22-24 2007,at Epochal Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan.


WorldHaptics05

After a series of successful conferences and events separately organized in the U.S. and Europe, the Symposium on Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environments and Teleoperator Systems and the EuroHaptics Conference was held jointly for the first time in 2005 in Pisa, Italy. This has been a great chance to create a truly global community in haptics, capable of answering the challenges, and grab the opportunities, offered by the growing demand of better interfaces to remote and virtual environments.


EuroHaptics 2010

The EuroHaptics 2010 conference was held in Amsterdam on 8-10 July 2010. Detailed conference information is available on the conference official web-site. Eurohaptics is a major international conference and a 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, telerobotics, rehabilitation robotics, and haptic feedback for design applications.

EuroHaptics 2008

The EuroHaptics 2008 conference was be held in Madrid in June 2008. Detailed conference information is available on the conference official web-site. Eurohaptics is a major international conference and a primary European meeting for researchers in the field of human haptic sensing and touch enabled computer applications.
