HAID 2012, August 23-24, Lund, Sweden
The Seventh International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction
Design (HAID) - August 23-24 2012 in Lund, Sweden.
HAID short paper proceedings online (full paper proceedings
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
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.
HAID12 is a direct successor to the successful workshop series
inaugurated in Glasgow in 2006, in Seoul in 2007, in Jyväskylä in
2008, Dresden in 2009, Copenhagen 2010 and Kyoto 2011. The aim of
HAID12 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
