IMA Workshop 9
Haptics, Virtual Reality, and Human Computer Interaction
June 14-15, 2001

This workshop addresses a central issue in human computer interface, which is the development of devices that allow users to explore, represent, and interact with virtual objects. Haptics uses an electro-mechanical feedback device by which a user can "feel" and manipulate an object represented on the computer. There are a number of significant applications for this technology which include medical simulation, training, games, and computer graphics.

Key topics of research that will be addressed includes tactile rendering, human factors, modeling of deformable objects, haptic devices, and locomotion and surface rendering. The research in these areas are, by their nature, interdisciplinary. They involve mechanics, dynamics, computational geometry, computer science, as well as cognitive sciences. The goal of this workshop is twofold. First, it is meant to introduce this important research area to the mathematical science community and foster their participation. Second, it should serve to alert the haptics community of recent developments in several areas of mathematics such as computational mechanics that provide supporting technology for this fast growing field.

The two-day workshop will consist of talks, poster presentations, and demonstrations.
