IEEE World Haptics Conference 2013

Sponsored by IEEE Robotics & Automation Society and Korea Robotics Society

URL: www.haptics2013.org


The 5th Joint Eurohaptics Conference and IEEE Haptics Symposium, April 14 ~
17, 2013, Daejeon Convention Center, Daejeon, South Korea.


IEEE WHC 2013 will feature a demo session that provides the opportunity for
researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to
explore and interact with the latest research results. Towards this goal,
IEEE WHC 2013 solicits demonstrations presenting recent original results or
ongoing research. Authors are invited to submit interesting results on all
aspects of haptics. Demonstrations will allow one-on-one interaction with
attendees and authors, where the benefits of the proposed research can be
practically highlighted, thereby enhancing its impact.


Submission Guidelines:

A proposal should include: Scope and significance of the demo with the basic
idea that it supports, equipment to be used for the demo, space and time
needed for setup, requirements for additional facilities, including power
and Internet/wireless access. Each submission should include the title of
the demonstration, names, affiliations, and contact emails of all authors,
and a brief abstract (~100 words). The proposal form is posted on the
official website, www.haptics2013.org. Proposals (no more than 2 pages) can
be submitted by email (demo at haptics2013.org). We also encourage URLs to any
video/flash presentation of the demo to be included in the demo proposal.
The Demonstration Committee headed by the demonstration co-chairs will
evaluate the proposals. It has venture capitalist representatives among its
members as well. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential
to stimulate fruitful discussions, exchange of ideas, and future
collaborations. The acceptance notifications will be emailed on Feb. 28,
2013. The best demonstrator will receive a demo award. Also, some financial
support will be provided to the demo attendees.
