EUROHAPTICS 2012

EuroHaptics 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, 
haptic rendering and haptic applications, such as surgical simulation, 
rehabilitation robotics, and haptic feedback for design and applied arts 
applications.

EuroHaptics 2012 will provide 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 will also be provided with the 
opportunity to get familiar with the latest research, as well as to 
demonstrate their products to a wider audience, and discuss specific 
requirements first hand with existing and potential customers.

Key themes for EuroHaptics 2012:
- Haptic Interaction when Mobile
- Haptics in Pervasive Environments
- Neuroscience
- Perception & Psychophysics
- Haptic Rendering
- Devices & Technology
- Medical & Rehabilitation Applications
- Art & Design Applications
- Collaborative Haptics
- Multimodal Interaction
- Tactile Display & Tactile Sensing
- Haptic HCI (Interaction, Visualisation)

Please review the description of workshops including their specific 
requirements and schedule for participation. Workshop organizers should 
be contacted directly when asking of details related to a specific workshop.

SPONSORS & EXHIBIT
In a haptics conference, demonstrations and exhibition are two of the 
main activities, as haptics needs to be personally experienced. We have 
allocated an extensive space for demonstrations and exhibition in the 
conference venue. An initial list of sponsors and exhibitors is now 
online on the conference website 
(http://www.eurohaptics2012.org/sponsors.html). More sponsors are added 
as soon as new agreements are made. If you are interested in sponsoring 
the EuroHaptics 2012 conference, please contact us for details:
