Title: Future of Multimodal and Crossmodal Interaction

Abstract: In this talk Professor Roope Raisamo will introduce Tampere Unit for Computer-Human Interaction (TAUCHI) and its research groups.
Special focus will be given for the research on multimodal interfaces where haptic interaction is used as one of the interaction modalities.
He will introduce projects doing basic and applied research on haptics, and the latest developments on the use of haptics in mobile contexts.
There are also examples of crossmodal uses of different modalities.
