CfP: Haptic and Audio Interaction Design 2013 (HAID'13)
18rd-19th April 2013, Daejeon, Korea
Held in conjunction with IEEE WorldHaptics 2013 (
18th Jan 2013, 23:59 PST 2013: Papers
22nd Feb 2013, 23:59 PST 2013: Posters and Demos
14th-17th April: WorldHaptics conference in Daejeon, Korea
18th-19th April: HAID'13 in Daejeon, Korea
Now in its 8th year, HAID is the premier venue for cutting-edge research on human-computer interaction through touch and sound. HAID'13 invites paper and poster submissions from all related disciplines and on all aspects of non-visual interaction design. We anticipate that accepted papers will be published in the Springer LNCS journal series. We are very pleased to host HAID'13 ( in conjunction with WorldHaptics 2013 ( Registration packages to facilitate and combine attendance at both events will be available. 
HAID'13 invites researchers and practitioners to submit, discuss and exchange design ideas and research findings on a wide range of topics spanning appropriate, effective and esoteric 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? Non-visual interaction is a challenging field and a growing area both in research and in commercial application and HAID'13 will provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of the latest findings, approaches and case studies. HAID'13 especially welcomes submissions relating to mobile haptic and audio interaction and those which go beyond lab-work to apply techniques to real world settings. 
HAID'13 is a direct successor to the successful workshop series inaugurated in Glasgow in 2006 and subsequently held in Seoul (2007), Jyväskylä (2008), Dresden (2009), Copenhagen (2010),  Kyoto (2011) and Lund (2012). The aim of HAID'13 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.
We invite your papers, posters, demonstrations and exhibits/design cases on these topics, and look forward to seeing you in Daejeon in April 2013!
Theoretical, empirical and design contributions are welcomed in (but not limited to) the following areas:
- 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, alarming)          
- Designing haptics and audio for touch screens         
- 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, smell)        
Papers must present original material and will be reviewed rigorously by at least three reviewers in a double-blind process. Papers in all areas will be assessed on their contribution to the field. Papers are due 18th Jan 2013 and reviews will be returned 18th February. Papers should be a maximum of 10 pages long in Springer LNCS format.
Poster and demos should present brief but complete descriptions of original material that is at an early stage of development, that is work-in-progress or that is more suited to a practical hands-on demonstration format. All submissions will be subject to a rapid review process to ensure quality. Posters and demos are due 22nd February 2013 and reviews will be returned on March 15th 2013. Submissions should be a maximum of 2 pages long in ACM SIGCHI format. 
We anticipate the workshop proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS journal series.
HAID'13 will take place in Daejeon, Korea in conjunction with IEEE WorldHaptics 2013 ( HAID will run immediately after the WorldHaptics conference and registration packages will be available to facilitate attending both events. HAID'13 will be hosted at the Daejeon Conference Centre, a modern, professional and fully equipped conference venue. Daejeon is a relatively small and easily navigable city and the home of KAIST, one of Korea's top universities. Daejeon has a rich and excellent local cuisine, provides easy access to the countryside and enjoys excellent transportation links via regular KTX bullet trains to Seoul (1 hour), Busan (2 hours) and many other destinations on the peninsula.
