EuroHaptics 2004
EuroHaptics 2004 was held between the 5th and 7th of June 2004. It was hosted by Technische Universität München, and organised by Martin Buss, Marc Ernst and Matthias Harders. Three days of intensive paper and poster sessions were capped off by keynote speakers including Vincent Hayward, Robert Howe and Hiroo Iwata.

A feedback form was distributed at the end of the conference. The results of this survey are available here

Copies of the Eurohaptics 2004 proceedings are available for purchase. Prices are 30 Euro for a print copy, 20 Euro for a CD and 40 Euro for both print and CD. Please contact to order copies.

There is also a picture gallery from the 2004 conference
