Dear all,

the deadline for HAID 2010 ( is three weeks  

Fifth International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction Design  

September 16-17 2010 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Deadline for full paper submissions - 30th April 2010

This year HAID will feature Søren Bech from Bang and Olufsen, Vincent  
Hayward from UPMC, France and Davide Rocchesso from IUAV, Italy as  
keynote speakers.

Technologies to enable multimodal interaction are now sufficiently  
mature that research is turning away from pure hardware development  
and looking towards interaction and design issues to improve usability  
and the user experience.

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  
concerning the appropriate use of haptics and audio in interaction  
design: 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?

HAID10 is a direct successor to the successful workshop series  
inaugurated in Glasgow in 2006, in Seoul in 2007, in Jyväskylä in 2008  
and in Dresden in 2009. The aim of HAID10 is to bring together  
researchers and practitioners who share an interest in finding out how  
the haptic and audio modalities can be used together in human computer  
interaction. The research challenges in the area are best approached  
through user-centred design, empirical studies or the development of  
novel theoretical frameworks.

We invite your papers, posters and demonstrations on these topics, and  
look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in September 2010!


Contributions are welcomed in (but not limited to) the following areas  
(please note that in all of these areas both theoretical and empirical  
approaches are encouraged):

- Novel haptic, audio and multimodal interfaces and interactions

- Evaluating multimodal interactions, especially in real contexts

- Design principles for multimodal user-interfaces

- Multimodal visualisations

- Affective roles of haptics and audio in interaction

- Cross-modal interactions

- Auditory and haptic displays for visually impaired people

- Safety critical multimodal applications (monitoring, controlling,  

- Designing haptics and audio for touch screen

- Multimodal gaming and entertainment

- Interaction in physical exercise

- Collaborative multimodal systems

- Mobile multimodal interactions

- Emulation and simulation of real world with audio-haptic design

- Novel systems and interactions using other modalities (e.g. taste,  


The proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS journal
