The IEEE Haptics Symposium is a conference of multidisciplinary research 
relating to the human sense of touch.  Held since 1992, it has become a 
vibrant forum where psychophysicists, engineers, and designers come 
together to share advances, spark new collaborations, and envision a 
future that benefits from rich physical interactions between humans and 
computers, facilitated by haptic technology.

In 2016, we are celebrating almost 25 years of multidisciplinary 
research relating to the human sense of touch, and we are excited to 
have Kenneth Salisbury and Roberta Klatzky as plenary speakers.  The 
conference will begin with a full day of workshops and tutorials on 
Friday, April 8, and will include three days of oral presentations of 
technical papers, hands-on demonstrations, exhibits, a poster session of 
work-in-progress papers, and a student innovation challenge.  
Registration will include a welcome reception and a banquet at the 
National Constitution Center.  Technical tours will be offered in the 
evening of Monday, April 11, including visits to the world-famous Penn
