Call For Papers

International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction CALL FOR PAPERS – SPECIAL ISSUE

You are cordially invited to make a contribution to a special issue of the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction (IJHCI), entitled “Does Touch Matter?: The Effects of Haptic Visualization on Human Performance, Behavior and Perception.”

Despite a considerable amount of ongoing research and development (R&D), current efforts in haptic R&D still have significant gaps. In particular, more systematic studies are still required regarding the design, development, and evaluation of haptic technology as well as its effects on human performance, behavior and perception. The primary goal of this special issue is to bridge these gaps in the knowledge and practice domains by presenting the state-of-the-art in research and development related to haptic and tactile interface technology through contributions from researchers in different disciplines.

We are seeking theoretical, methodological, empirical, case, field, and multidisciplinary studies on different aspects of haptic R&D that include, but are not limited to:

(1) Comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art haptic technology, applications or studies;
(2) Development of new haptic technology (e.g., haptic sensors and actuators, haptic rendering, etc.)
(3) Design of an effective haptic feedback considering the user’s perceptual characteristics (such as cutaneous sensation and proprioceptive sensation) under multimodal interaction;
(4) Affective perspective on haptic & tactile interfaces – affective experience of texture, force, vibration, thermal sensation, etc.;
(5) Studies on perceptual characteristics of tactile sensing for better design of user experience – vibration, texture, shape, force, interaction of haptic and other sensorial information under multisensory processing, etc.;
(6) Theoretical frameworks for testing the usability of haptic technology or haptic user interfaces in real-world contexts, or empirical evaluations of such tests;
(7) Innovative haptics such as shared/collaborative haptic control, neurohaptics, wearable and immersive haptics, etc.;
(8) Novel haptic applications (e.g., haptics in industry, education, mobile device, entertainment, art, etc.).
