Dear colleagues,

the final program of Eurohaptics 2018 conference is now available at

Eurohaptics2018conference will be held in Pisa, Italy, on June
13-16,2018.  We have received contributions from 24 countries with 41%
from Europe, 45% from Asia and, 12% from Americas and 2% from Oceania.

We look forward to a rich scientific program including:

  * *4 Keynote speakers*
      o *Dr Shumin Zhai* from *Google*
      o *Dr* *Freddy Abnousi* from *Facebook*
      o *Prof. Mel Slater* from *University of Barcelona-Spain*
      o *Prof. Hiroyasu Iwata* from *Waseda University-Japan*
  * *40 oral presentations *organized in 10 haptics thematic sessions;
  * *55 poster presentations*;
  * *48 hands on demos*;
  * *61 Work-in-progress**presentations;*
  * *4 thematic workshops*;
  * *6 awards*;
  * the *Ultrahaptics Student Challenge*;
  * one *special session on Development Kits*;
  * several *social events*, including
      o the *social dinner at historical "Stazione Leopolda Pisa"*
      o   the Farewell drink immediately before the spectacular *city
        party of "La Luminara"*

We are thankful to all the organizations that have supported and
sponsored the event: academic ones (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna),
industrial Gold (Lofelt, BHTC and Moog), Silver (Haption, Ultrahaptics,
ForceDimension, Immersion, 3Dsystem, Hapt2U, TDK and BPS Polytec) and
Bronze sponsors (Tactile Labs, Disney Research, Facebook Reality Labs
and Tanvas), Springer for sponsoring the Best Paper Award. We also thank
for their donation our accessibility sponsors (Immersion, Facebook
Reality Labs and Ultrahaptics) that have made possible to enlarge the
access to the conference to a wider number of scientists, reducing some
of the barriers for people with disabilities.

This year the program includes also a Ultrahaptics student challenge,
where four teams of students were internationally selected to propose
innovative mid-air haptic interaction paradigms, andfor the first time a
Dev Kits Special Session, where different companies present the research
and educational possibilities offered by their development kits.

Eurohaptics2018conference will be held in Pisa, Italy, on June
13-16,2018. It will provide researchers from academia and industry with
an opportunity to present ideas and establish contacts with
otherhapticsresearchers from around the world.  The conference will be
held at Palazzo dei Congressi di Pisa (Pisa Congress Palace).

Eurohaptics2018will cover all aspects ofhaptics, including neuroscience,
psychophysics, perception, engineering, computing, interactions, virtual
reality and the arts. We welcomepapersacross 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.Eurohaptics2018is part of the
activities taking place under the auspices of theEurohapticsSociety.

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
ofEurohaptics2018will be published in Lecture notes in Computer Science
by Springer.

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=PoyIWPTP_1B55cpCtwLGhRIni1rGlFCMvYJ5vKvFUfM&s=hkFwz441Wb402nNi2Ox-Ipsc_PeQ1F4K2xUAnjgyrfE&e=
