Haptic and Audio Interaction Design (HAID): Deadline extension until June 20

(Apologies for cross postings)

The deadline for posters and demos to HAID 2010 has been EXTENDED to
JUNE 20, 2010.

        Fifth International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction
Design (HAID) 	www.media.aau.dk/haid10 .
        September 16-17 2010 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The program committee are pleased of the many interesting submissions
but have also received some requests for an extension of the deadline.
We have therefore decided to add a few extra weeks to give the
opportunity to more authors to submit demos and posters.

The aim of the poster session is to showcase work in progress or late
breaking results relevant to any of the themes of the workshop.
Submissions will be 2 page papers (see
http://media.aau.dk/haid10/?page_id=5 for instructions on submission).
Accepted submissions will be published by Aalborg university press
with an ISBN number and authors are expected to bring a poster
describing their work to HAID10.

        This year HAID will feature Søren Bech from Bang and Olufsen,
Vincent Hayward from UPMC, France and Davide Rocchesso from IUAV,
Italy as keynote speakers.

    Technologies to enable multimodal interaction are now sufficiently
mature that research is turning away from pure hardware development
and looking towards interaction and design issues to improve usability
and the user experience.

    Robust solutions exist to display audio and haptic feedback in
many forms - for instance as speech and non speech sounds and through
tactile and force feedback sensations. Furthermore, it has been
demonstrated that the novel interactions supported by these modalities
can confer benefits for all users. However, many questions remain
concerning the appropriate use of haptics and audio in interaction
design: how can we design effective haptic, audio and multimodal
interfaces? In what new application areas can we apply these
techniques? Are there design methods that are useful? Or evaluation
techniques that are particularly appropriate?

    HAID10 is a direct successor to the successful workshop series
inaugurated in Glasgow in 2006, in Seoul in 2007, in Jyväskylä in 2008
and in Dresden in 2009. The aim of HAID10 is to bring together
researchers and practitioners who share an interest in finding out how
the haptic and audio modalities can be used together in human computer
interaction. The research challenges in the area are best approached
through user-centred design, empirical studies or the development of
novel theoretical frameworks.

    We invite your posters and demonstrations on these topics, and
look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in September 2010!


    Contributions are welcomed in (but not limited to) the following
areas (please note that in all of these areas both theoretical and
empirical approaches are encouraged):

    - Novel haptic, audio and multimodal interfaces and interactions

    - Evaluating multimodal interactions, especially in real contexts

    - Design principles for multimodal user-interfaces

    - Multimodal visualisations

    - Affective roles of haptics and audio in interaction

    - Cross-modal interactions

    - Auditory and haptic displays for visually impaired people

    - Safety critical multimodal applications (monitoring,
controlling, alarming)

    - Designing haptics and audio for touch screen

    - Multimodal gaming and entertainment

    - Interaction in physical exercise

    - Collaborative multimodal systems

    - Mobile multimodal interactions

    - Emulation and simulation of real world with audio-haptic design

    - Novel systems and interactions using other modalities (e.g. taste, smell)


        The proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS
journal series.
