Welcome to Houston and the 2014 IEEE Haptics Symposium! Our conference, launched in 1992, has become a vibrant forum where psychophysicists, engineers, and designers come together to share advances, spark new collaborations, and envision a future that benefits from rich physical interactions between humans and computers. As it did in 2012, the Haptics Symposium now features a longer format: a full day of tutorials and workshops, followed by three full days for the main conference in a single track. The Haptics Symposium is an independent, stand-alone conference, part of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society portfolio of conferences. The benefits of this move to independence have included greater autonomy and flexibility in selecting our timing, duration and program, setting, and, we believe, in providing a truly invigorating atmosphere for sharing the latest developments in the field of haptics.
