Dear all,

We are calling for contributions for the 2017 IEEE/SICE International
Symposium on System Integration Special Session on “Distributed Haptic
Sensor Integration”

Haptic sensors can provide rich information about the contact state and can
be used for various applications such as user interfaces or collaborative
robots. Spatially distributed sensing points, for example integrated in an
artificial skin, can potentially provide detailed tactile information.
Embedded electronics and distributed computation are necessary to
facilitate the integration; otherwise, an overwhelming amount of wires
would require too much space. Advanced algorithms are needed to analyze and
interpret the haptic data fast and accurate. This special session,
therefore, aims to bring together experts in the fields of developing and
integrating haptic sensors and tactile data analysis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Haptic sensor development and integration

- Multimodal distributed tactile sensors

- Modular skin sensors;

- Soft/flexible/stretchable sensors;

- Large-scale data processing of tactile information

- Use of tactile data for interaction control

- Integration of haptic data with other sensing modalities (e.g. vision,
inertial sensing)

Submissions Procedure:  All the instructions for paper submission are
included in the conference website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.sii2017.org&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=OsGzSHdb4czPp7wbyDnYVflhru4Y-j7YQvX9NJgTIcU&s=jT7RX3tBFDpTDBl38zmp4p3SSTAbhT3U04G3LSNZ2rU&e=  .
A good quality paper may be considered for publication in IEEE Transactions
on Industrial Informatics subject to further rounds of review.
