SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:
IEEE WHC 2019 (IEEE WORLD HAPTICS CONFERENCE 2019, THE 8TH JOINT EUROHAPTICS CONFERENCE AND IEEE HAPTICS SYMPOSIUM)
sola city Conference Center
Chiyoda, Tokyo, JAPAN

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, you are invited to participate in IEEE WHC 2019 to be held in Tokyo, JAPAN July 9-12, 2019. In recent years, we have witnessed the rapid evolution of haptics research. Fundamental understanding of touch perception, technologies to interface via haptics, and commercial applications are all burgeoning. IEEE World Haptics is the premier conference for reporting research results and demonstrating novel capabilities in the field of haptics. There are many ways to contribute to the conference by submitting original full-length technical papers, late-breaking work-in-progress papers, hands-on demos, and exhibits to the design showcase. We are also soliciting proposals for Cross-cutting Challenge and Workshop Sessions. Corporations are also encouraged to consider sponsorship opportunities and/or participating by exhibiting commercial offerings as a means of both supporting this dynamic community and maintaining visibility within it. For more details, please check http://www.worldhaptics2019.org/submissioncategories/
TALKS & INTERACTIVE SESSIONS
All technical paper sessions at WHC 2019 will have a new format: 10-minute talks for accepted papers nominated for an award, 3-minute blitz pitches for all other accepted papers, followed by an interactive session of 120 minutes for all accepted papers held in the same session room.
More than 10% of submissions will be invited to submit an extended, journal-length version to the IEEE Transactions on Haptics (ToH), in an expedited process. The invited papers will be selected by the ToH editorial board, based on WHC reviews and suitability for the journal.
Work in Progress, Hands-on Demo, and Design Showcase
The Work-in-Progress category calls for rapid communications summarized in 2 pages. The authors will give their presentations in a poster presentation. The hands-on demo category calls for a short abstract (approx. 200 words), a short video (within 3 minutes) that can show the content of the demo, and mock-up images for space planning. During the conference, the authors will present their demonstration and a spotlight talk. Design showcase, a newly established category, calls for diverse activities in the cross region of design and haptics, such as products, services, entertainment, education, welfare, and art. Submission materials include a short abstract and a short video, and accepted works will be exhibited in the venue.
The authors of work-in-progress, hands-on demo, and design showcase will retain the copyrights, and materials will not be archived in IEEEXplore.
The conference welcomes original contributions related to any topics of haptics. Topics of interest include:
Haptic interface design and control
Sensors and actuators
Virtual and augmented reality
Haptic rendering and modeling
Shared control and collaboration
Physical human-robot interaction
Human haptic perception
Neuroscience of touch
Haptics in industrial and commercial applications
Haptics in medical applications
Haptics in art and design
Other innovative applications of haptics

VENUE & SOCIAL PROGRAMS
IEEE WHC 2019 will be held at the Sola City Conference Center in Ochanomizu. Due to its proximity to Tokyo Station, Ueno, Suidobashi, and Akihabara, it is also a convenient base for exploring the wider area. Tokyo is a historic city that breathes with four hundred years of tradition, while still being able to continually change and embrace the future. The Kanda Myojin Shrine and the Mausoleum of Confucius at Yushima are within walking distance of the venue. In addition, it takes only 15 minutes to visit the Sensoji Temple with its Thunder Gate. If you visit Akihabara, a fully-charged electric town sparking original culture, you can find the cultural home to the diehard fans, the "otaku", of gaming, manga, and anime. We hope to see you there!
