2017 IEEE World Haptics solicits proposals for workshops/tutorials, to be
held on June 6, 2017 in Munich, preceding the full conference.

** Important Dates:

December 23: Expression of Intent
March 19, 2017: Workshop and tutorial proposals due
March 31, 2017: Organizers notified
April 28, 2017: Final schedule, webpage, and speaker list due
June 6, 2017: Workshops and tutorials take place

** Expression of Intent: We would appreciate it if interested organizers of
workshops or tutorials could send an email to workshops at worldhaptics2017.org by
Dec 23 2016 suggesting a title and the name of organizers.

Informal enquiries are encouraged, however a formal email submission
including a full proposal is
required for consideration by *March 19, 2017*. The description of the
workshop/tutorial will be
uploaded on the website and included in the proceedings.

The goal of the workshops/tutorials is to create an informal environment
for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives on topics
important to the haptics community. Possible workshops/tutorials could be
aimed at, but not limited to: new approaches to basic or applied research,
new methodologies, design innovation, theoretical analyses, emerging
research areas, connections to other research fields. Presentations in
workshops/tutorials should not duplicate presentations at the main
conference, but they could deepen the analysis, discuss theoretical accounts,
or even present related material. Multiple workshops/tutorials will be run
on parallel tracks.

** Interested organizers can choose between different formats:

 - Open Workshops: The organizers propose a topic, which (if approved) is
disseminated openly (also through the conference website). Speakers can
apply to the organizers. The organizers must supply a final program and
list of speakers to the Workshops Chairs by April 28, 2017.

- Panel Workshops: The organizers propose a topic and a tentative panel of

- Tutorials: Tutorials are seminars of established research areas that are
aimed to provide hands-on experience. They should be focused on a single
topic and should be presented by two or three
experts in the field.
