The IEEE World Haptics Conference (WHC) is the premier international conference covering various aspects of haptics, including the scientific findings, technological developments, and applications. The conference is a vibrant environment for sharing the most up-to-date research advancements in the field of haptics, leading to new collaborations, fruitful scientific discussions, engagement of young researchers,  and charting the future role of haptic technology in enhancing human life. The 2021 WHC will be held as a virtual conference from July 6 to 9, 2021. The conference will offer an exciting program including workshops and tutorials, which will provide an engaging forum for participants to discuss emerging and active research areas.

Workshops are divided into two categories: Panel workshops and Open workshops. A panel workshop is organized around a specific topic or topics in haptics research and a panel of invited speakers gives talks and participates in discussion sessions on the topic. An open workshop is also organized around a specific topic or topics with the difference that organizers call for speakers who are willing to give a talk concerning the topic. In both categories, the organizers are asked to supply a final program of the workshop and a final list of speakers. Tutorials are presentations in established research areas aimed to provide hands-on experience. They should be focused on a single topic and should be presented by two or three experts in the field.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and taking scheduling considerations into account, workshops and tutorials will be offered virtually (online) before and/or after the conference as half-day or full-day events. Organizers of Workshops and Tutorials are asked to pay special attention to exploring ways to stimulate engagement and interaction with the remote audience.

The conference solicits proposals for workshops and tutorials in a two-stage screening process, involving Expression of Interest (EOI) and Full Proposal submissions. The EOIs are due on January 15, 2021. Once selected by an adjudicating committee, the full proposals will be due on March 19, 2021.

To submit a workshop and tutorial EOI, please fill out the electronic form (Google form).
