Eurohaptics is a major international conference on haptics and touch enabled computer applications, and the primary European meeting for researchers in this field. Over the last decade, Eurohaptics conference has been the leading event in Europe for academia and industry, providing invaluable solutions for expanding networks and enhancing knowledge.
Academia and industry representatives have continued to increase their expertise and a distinct community has emerged inside Pisa research area. Sant’Anna School Professor Antonio Frisoli will act as the conference general chair. The conference will cover all aspects of haptics, including neuroscience, psychophysics, perception (haptic in ancient Greek means “coming into contact with something”), engineering, computing, interactions with digital technologies, and virtual reality.
