HAID 2012 – The Seventh International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction Design (HAID) – August 23-24 2012 in Lund, Sweden. First call for short papers/posters, demos and exhibits/design cases.
The combination of haptic and audio for interaction design is a challenging research area, and we invite researchers and practitioners interested in these non-visual modalities to come to HAID to exchange designs and research findings. This year’s HAID has a particular (but not exclusive) focus on the mobile setting – while on the move the haptic and audio combination has great (but sadly under-exploited) potential. More non-visual interaction designs will make applications and devices easier to user for everyone.
We invite contributions on the appropriate use of haptics and audio in interaction design: how do we design effectively for mobile interaction? 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? We also welcome artistic exhibits and commercial design cases for our exhibition.
