***The 2014 IEEE Haptics Symposium (
solicits proposals for tutorials and workshops, to be held on February 23,
2014 preceding the full conference.

Tutorials should disseminate knowledge of established research areas that
are relevant to the haptics community. Workshops are forums where specific
research topics are presented and discussed aimed at extending the normal
disciplinary boundaries of haptics. In all cases we strongly encourage
interested organizers to contact the HS14 Workshops and Tutorials Chair as
soon as possible to discuss suitability of the proposed topic (send e-mail
directly to Antonio Frisoli [log in to unmask] or to
[log in to unmask]) <[log in to unmask]>

Both tutorials and workshops can have either HALF or FULL day duration,
according to proposed plan and covered topics.

    ** Tutorials **

Tutorials are self-contained seminars of established research areas that
should provide training within and perhaps on periphery of traditional
haptic related topics. They should be focused on the proposed topic and
should be presented by two or three experts in the field. Interested
tutorial organizers should submit a tutorial proposal **no later than
October 20, 2013**.

    ** Workshops **

The goal of workshops is to stimulate or highlight new research topics
relevant to haptics which have not previously been within this community’s
mainstream. They should allow members of the community to present and
discuss new approaches to research, methods, concepts or emerging research
areas. This forum should also nurture the interaction among presenters and
attendees to obtain feedback from the attending community. Workshop
presentations should not largely repeat oral presentations at the main
conference, but could, for example, highlight or collect relevant work that
has been seen in non-haptics venues. Interested workshop organizers can
choose between two different workshop formats: open and panel.

     ** Open Workshops: **

The organizer proposes a topic, which (after approval) is disseminated
openly; interested speakers apply to the organizer to participate. This
style of workshop is ideal for exploring the degree of interest and
activity in a new area.

The organizer should submit a proposal describing the topic, workshop
structure and mechanism for choosing speakers to the HS Workshops Chair no
later than/September 15, 2013/. Once reviewed and accepted, the topic will
be publicized. The organizers must supply a final program and list of
speakers to the Workshops Chair  ***by October 20, 2013***.

      ** Panel Workshops: **

The organizer proposes a topic, panel of speakers who have agreed to
participate, and schedule and description. The proposal should be submitted
to the Workshops Chair **by October 20, 2013**.

All finalized workshop proposals with prospective speakers must be
submitted **no later than October 20, 2013**.

Appropriate topics for Tutorials and Workshops that the community has
expressed interest in include but are not limited to:

   * Neuroscience
   * Rehabilitation robotics and Haptics
   * Haptic rendering (from textures to solid models with deformable
   * Surface haptics
   * Haptics and BCI
   * Dynamics and control of human-in-the-loop haptic systems
   * Emerging Haptic Technologies

     ** Important Dates **

    - September 15, 2013: Open Workshop proposals due
    - ***October 20, 2013: Open (finalized) and Panel Workshop and Tutorial
proposals due***
    - November 20, 2013: Organizers notified
    - December 20, 2013: Final schedule & speaker list due
    - January 8, 2014: Booklet materials due
    - February 23, 2014: Workshops and Tutorials Held in Houston - Texas

     ** Submission **

Tutorial and workshop proposals should be sent by email to the HS14
Workshop and Tutorials Chair <[log in to unmask]> or directly to
Antonio Frisoli <[log in to unmask]>, by filling this form (docx version
available at <>).

A one page proposal is enough for the initial submission, however a 4-6
page abstract will be requested at a later date to be included in a DVD
workshop proceedings which will not be posted online. For more information,
