Workshop and tutorials proposals

List of accepted workshops
Submission deadline: February 8, 2016 (extended)
Eurohaptics 2016 solicits proposals for tutorials and workshops, to be held on Monday, July 4, 2016 preceding the full conference. Informal enquiries are encouraged, however a formal submission will be requested for consideration and to be uploaded on the website and included in the proceedings.
The goal of workshops and tutorials is disseminating knowledge and engaging focused discussions on topics important to the haptics community. They offer an informal environment for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives. They could be aimed ad presenting new approaches to basic or applied research, new methodologies, design innovation, theoretical analyses, emerging research areas, or connections to other fields of research. Workshop presentations should not duplicate presentations at the main conference, but could deepen the analysis, discuss theoretical accounts, or even present related material. Multiple workshops will be run on parallel tracks.
