To design the best human interfaces for complex systems such as automobiles, mixing consoles, shared reality spaces, games, military, and aerospace, an increasing number of designers, psychologists, and human factors specialists are reconsidering multimodal displays of information that includes haptic and tactile feedback in addition to auditory-visual communication. This workshop considers in particular the way in which various modalities of information can be best integrated for a particular application, and identifies future requirements for such research.
