/The IEEE Transactions on Haptics/ (ToH) is now accepting submissions.  
The journal website is:


and a Call for Papers may be found at:


ToH will address the science, technology and applications associated 
with information acquisition and object manipulation through touch. 
Haptic interactions relevant to this journal include all aspects of 
manual exploration and manipulation by humans, machines and interactions 
between the two, performed in real, virtual, teleoperated or networked 

Research areas of relevance to this publication will include, but not be 
limited to, the following topics:

    * Human haptic and multi-sensory perception and action
    * Haptic interactions via passive or active tools and machines
    * Devices that sense, enable, or create haptic interactions locally
      or at a distance
    * Haptic rendering and its association with graphic and auditory
      rendering in virtual reality
    * Algorithms, controls, and dynamics of haptic devices, users, and
      interactions between the two
    * Human-machine performance and safety with haptic feedback
    * Haptics in the context of human-computer interactions
    * Systems and networks using haptic devices and interactions,
      including multi-modal feedback
    * Application of the above, for example in areas such as education,
      rehabilitation, medicine, computer-aided design, skills training,
      computer games, driver controls, simulation and visualization
