Eurohaptics 2018 seeks Work In Progress submissions (WIP, max 4 pages), 
which describe recently completed work or highly relevant results of 
work in progress in all areas related to haptics science, technology and 
*The  WIP Paper submission deadline has been postponed to April 2, 2018 
**March 15, 2018
*Work In Progress format allows you to submit your latest or still 
preliminary research with high visibility to the EH2018 audience.Since 
this type of submissions are not considered to be formal publications, 
submissions are eligible for future publication in other venues*

Work in progress submissions will be reviewed by WIP program co-chairs. 
Selected submissions will be presented during the dedicated work in 
progress teaser and poster session.
We look forward to receiving your contribution for a vibrant and 
exciting conference. Use the following link

Eurohaptics 2018 conference 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 
other haptics researchers from around the world.  The conference will be 
held at Palazzo dei Congressi di Pisa (Pisa Congress Palace).

Eurohaptics 2018 will cover all aspects of haptics, including 
neuroscience, psychophysics, perception, engineering, computing, 
interactions, virtual reality and the arts. We welcome papers across 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. Eurohaptics 2018 is part of the activities taking place under the 
auspices of the Eurohaptics Society.

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 
of Eurohaptics 2018 will be published in Lecture notes in Computer 
Science by Springer.


- *Work-in-Progress Papers* (4 pages): Highlighting late-breaking 
results and presented as posters and authors will retain copyright for 
future publication of extended work;

- *Workshop and tutorial proposals*: disseminating knowledge and 
engaging focused discussions on topics important to the haptics community;

- *Hands-on demonstrations*: live demonstrations of innovative haptics 
research, technology and applications;

- *Exhibits/sponsors* (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__eurohaptics2018.org_sponsorship_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vmPeN7XF8Let6GuQfdO_XLGep6kgNmrSZBbCW9XgnAM&s=7raUqf3ouqUP_EUMiuBECa7t2S1cbBlkRWV7REKXIgc&e=): 
Companies are invited to engage with our community by displaying 
products and services that relate to haptics.
