On behalf of the organizing committee of the Fourth International Workshop
on HAPTIC and AUDIO INTERACTION DESIGN (HAID'09), we would like to invite
you to attend this exciting event that will happen in Dresden, September
10-11, 2009.


The aim of HAID'09 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. The research challenges in the
area are best approached through user-centred design, empirical studies or
the development of novel theoretical frameworks.


The workshop program is online and can be downloadable:




Prof. Dr. Charles Spence, Oxford University

Dr. Durand Begault, NASA

Dr. Christophe Ramstein, Immersion Cooperation
