Symposium 5 – New technologies for new uses

Chair : Eric Seulliet, La Fabrique du Futur, France

The need for new products and services is accelerating at a fast pace as new usages emerge. Therefore enterprises need to speed up the innovation process and to better target the true needs of the consumers. 3D and immersive environments are ideal tools for co-creation purposes and living lab approaches with the end users.

Le besoin de nouveaux produits et services s’accélère à un rythme rapide au fur et à mesure que de nouveaux usages émergent. C’est pourquoi les entreprises doivent rapidement cibler les nouveaux besoins des consommateurs.

Symposium 2 – New user experiences and interfaces for the web of things

Chair: Frédérique PAIN, Alcatel Lucent, Bell Labs, France

Virtualization of physical things that surrounds us presents a novel challenge for the product industry and especially User Experience (UX) practitioners. Augmenting real-world objects with virtual objects addressable on the Web allows for new machine-to-machine interactions to be designed but also for a new user experience to be shaped.

Symposium 3 – Haptics for Telepresence, Teleoperation and Collaborative Environments

Chair: Mehdi AMMI, CNRS/LIMSI, Univ. Paris-Sud 11, Haptic-SIG, France

Co-chair: Jérôme PERRET, Haption, Haptic-SIG, France

While haptic sense provides the most natural way to interact and physically feel the environment, it also has an important role in communication and collaboration between users through co-located and remote configurations. This workshop intends to foster exchanges among participants and exhibit recent and original findings in the field of Haptics for Telepresence, Teleoperation and Collaborative Environments.

Bien que le sens haptique soit la manière la plus naturelle d’interagir et de ressentir physiquement un environnement virtuel, il a aussi un rôle important pour la communication et la collaboration entre les utilisateurs par le biais de configurations co-localisées ou télé-opérées. Ce symposium vise à favoriser les échanges entre les participants et à présenter les résultats récents et inédits dans le domaine de l’haptique pour la Téléprésence, la téléopération et les environnements de collaboration.
