A new Presence-related journal has been created: IEEE Transactions on Haptics. This is excellent news, as such a medium will cater to a significant part of the community focused around a key aspect (sense) of presence technologies. To learn more, visit the journal website.
IEEE Transactions on Haptics will address the science, technology and applications associated with information acquisition and object manipulation through touch. Haptic interactions relevant to this journal include all aspects of manual exploration and manipulation by humans, machines and interactions between the two, performed in real, virtual, teleoperated or networked environments.
Research areas of relevance to this publication will include, but not be limited to, the following topics:
The Transactions is published quarterly, with the first issue having premiered in the second half of 2008.
