**     EUROHAPTICS  2018**
**June 13-16 in Pisa, Italy**

Eurohaptics is a major international conference on haptics and touch
enabled computer applications, and the primary European meeting for
researchers in this field.
Eurohaptics 2018 conference, to be held in Pisa, Italy, June 13-16,
2018, will provide researchers from academia and industry with an
opportunity to present ideas and establish contacts with other haptics
researchers from around the world.  The conference will be held at
Palazzo dei Congressi di Pisa (Pisa Congress Palace).

Eurohaptics 2018 will cover all aspects of haptics, including
neuroscience, psychophysics, perception, engineering, computing,
interactions, virtual reality and the arts. We welcome papers across a
wide range of topics in fundamental science and engineering, as well as
end-application in areas such as medical and surgical simulation, skills
training, rehabilitation robotics, collaborative human-robot
interactions, communication and haptic feedback for design and the arts.
Eurohaptics 2018 is part of the activities taking place under the
auspices of the Eurohaptics Society.

The conference will provide researchers from academia and industry an
opportunity to present new ideas and establish contacts with colleagues
from around the world. An important part of the conference will be the
opportunity to demonstrate and experience new haptic hardware and
software, and discuss ideas with researchers and developers to gain
information about the latest haptic research. Proceedings of Eurohaptics
2018 will be published in Lecture notes in Computer Science by Springer.


- Technical Papers (10 pages): Accepted papers will be presented orally
or trough a poster and published in Lecture notes in Computer Science by
- Work-in-Progress Papers (4 pages): Highlighting late-breaking results
and presented as posters and authors will retain copyright for future
publication of extended work.
- Exhibits/sponsors (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__eurohaptics2018.org_sponsorship_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=XrfXr2HBZd3F7OWbsX0ThaaHZsHZEoWannXSfqALRJs&s=0501KpoaNpbOlDK_Kz1pDxHK-KwEmyj-nu2fsmxeKVs&e=): Companies
are invited to engage with our community by displaying products and
services that relate to haptics.

The conference will be held at Palazzo dei Congressi di Pisa (Pisa
Congress Palace), in the city center of Pisa, one of the most beautiful
cities in Tuscany, Italy. Featuring a very long history, Pisa offers a a
number of famous art and historical sites such as the Leaning Tower or
Piazza dei Cavalieri. Well connected with a broad range of domestic and
international locations thanks to the city airport (10 mins from the
conference venue), Pisa is also exploitable by walking through its
marvellous streets and Arno riverside.(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__eurohaptics2018.org_venue_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=XrfXr2HBZd3F7OWbsX0ThaaHZsHZEoWannXSfqALRJs&s=Tee5gfxPF-BEFYXZD9C4yaR9Mt7W1skxwsIFxBvevts&e=).

In addition to presenting an exhibit, vendors and corporations are
encouraged to help sponsor Eurohaptics 2018 to support the haptics
community and maintain visibility within it.  For more information,

The ULTRAHAPTICS Student Challenge jointly promoted by ULTRAHAPTICS and
EUROHAPTICS 2018 invites participants from all over the world to
demonstrate new applications of touch interfaces by using the
ULTRAHAPTICS Development Kit.
This challenge provides an advanced development platform to innovate
research on touch and aims to promote new applications in the field of
mid-air haptics with a special interest in the broad areas of AR/VR,
Entertainment, Communication, Healthcare, or Security.
