Call For Papers
Haptics-e is a new, electronic, peer-reviewed, journal of research in
the science and engineering of haptic perception and human machine
interaction. Haptics-e aspires to combine the high quality, wide
availability, and archival retention of traditional scientific journals
with the speed and economy of electronic distribution. Accordingly,
Haptics-e seeks high quality, rigorous papers of
interest to the scientific and engineering community in several
All papers will be published on-line without charge to readers or
authors. Articles will be published as soon as review is completed. We
expect to be able to publish papers within 5 days of final acceptance.
Our editorial process will be expedited to the fullest extent possible,
in order to achieve our goal of rapid dissemination of the highest
quality work in the field of haptics.
Information on the organization of the Journal, its Governing Board,
Editorial Board, and Constitution, and Copyright policy are available
on the Masthead Page.
Haptics-e is technically co-sponsored
IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
Links with other professional
societies are currently under negotiation.
Topics of Interest
Haptics-e will consider papers on the following topics as they relate to haptics.
Haptics-e will not consider papers which primarily address:
Mechatronics, mechanics, devices for haptic interaction.
- Human Factors
Psychophysics, biomechanics, anthropometrics, sensory/motor interaction, neurophysiology,
Haptic rendering, textures, haptic visualization, systems and networking.
- End user applications of haptics
CAD, training, human-computer interfaces, art, music, consumer devices.
Real-time dynamic simulation and modeling of physical phenomena.
- Integration with other modalities.
- Graphics and remote operation.
- Locomotion, whole body haptics and proprioception.
- Anthropomorphic devices.
- Virtual Environments without touch or kinesthetic sensation.
- Robotics or Control without the human operator involved in the dynamics.
- Promotion of commercial products.
- Telerobotics without haptics.
