2nd Call for Posters and Demos
Second International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction Design
Poster and demo submission: 24th August 2007 Midnight GMT
Workshop dates: 29-30 November 2007 in Seoul, Korea

We apologise if you receive multiple copies of this notice.

Technologies to enable multimodal interaction are now sufficiently mature that research is turning away from pure technology development and looking towards interaction and design issues. Robust solutions exist to display audio and haptic feedback in many forms - for instance as speech and non speech sounds and through tactile and force feedback sensations. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that the novel interactions supported by these modalities can confer benefits for all users. However, many questions remain: how can we design effective haptic, audio and multimodal interfaces? In what new application areas can we apply these techniques? Are there design methods that are useful? Or evaluation techniques that are particularly appropriate?

While multimodal interfaces are attracting more and more attention, there is relatively little work on how the haptic and auditory modalities can be efficiently and effectively combined in an interface. Is there information which is better communicated using one modality rather than another? How can we link haptic and auditory displays so that changes in one modality are reflected in the other? Can we create complimentary relationships between the information displayed to each sense? Additionally, how should we interact with these new displays and interfaces? Is a direct manipulation interaction style still appropriate? A technique that works well with a force feedback device but may not be appropriate for all types of displays. How should we interact with a tactile display, or manipulate a sonified graph?

Whilst audio and haptic interaction has been shown to be a useful tool, neither sense has the bandwidth of the visual modality. Careful, considered and informed interaction design will play a vital role if multimodal systems are to move beyond the lab and into the real world. This workshop seeks novel research addressing this human-centric challenge.
HAID'07 is a direct successor to the successful first HAID workshop held in Glasgow, UK in 2006:

Contributions are welcomed in (but not limited to) the following areas:
  - Novel haptic, audio and multimodal interfaces and interactions
  - Evaluating multimodal interactions
  - Design principles for multimodal systems
  - Multimodal visualisations
  - Cross modal interactions
  - Auditory and haptic displays for visually impaired people
  - Multimodal gaming and entertainment
  - Collaborative multimodal systems
  - Novel systems and interactions using other modalities (e.g. taste, smell)

Posters due 24th August 2007, 12 midnight GMT
The aim of the poster session is to showcase work in progress or late breaking results relevant to any of the themes of the workshop. Submissions will be 2 page papers in the ACM format<>, and authors are expected to bring a poster describing their work to HAID'07. The papers will be distributed in the HAID'07 ancillary proceedings (and hosted on the website afterwards) and there will be a dedicated poster session in which posters authors can present and discuss their work. Posters need not be anonymous, but will be subjected to a review process. Copyright will remain with the authors.

Demos due 24th August 2007, 12 midnight GMT
Haptic and audio systems often need to be tried to be fully understood and appreciated. With this in mind, we welcome demonstration submissions to the HAID'07 workshop. These submissions can be stand alone or compliment a paper submission and we encourage the contribution of both research prototypes and industrial applications. Demo submissions will take the form of a 2 page paper in the ACM format<>, and a brief accompanying description of the demo installation. We will try to accommodate requests for specific layouts and equipment. The papers need not be anonymous, but will undergo a review process. Accepted papers will be distributed in the ancillary proceedings of the workshop (and hosted on the website afterwards) and attendees will have the opportunity to try out the demos in a dedicated session. Copyright will remain with the authors.
