Hello all ! Salut tout le monde !!

It's the end of the season, so let's end it with a BANG !

On the menu for the night

Talks from two leading experts in the field of Haptics : Dr. Christian Frisson and Colin Gallacher, you can find more info on them in our speakers page


GASP !!!!


Colin Gallacher [www.haply.co]
Title: When the senses touch the design: haptic systems engineering
Abstract: The last two centuries saw us develop technologies to digitally capture and display the sights and sounds around us;  understanding the way our eyes and ears function guided our designs. This century we are already tackling the design of touch displays and integrating them into our most cutting-edge technologies. We'll discuss how our senses of touch lay the groundwork for the engineering behind our state-of-the art haptic technologies and how these displays are shaping the world of simulation.

Christian Frisson [http://frisson.re]
Title: Haptics↔Audio feedbacks in research and interactive applications
Abstract: This talk will showcase how Haptics and Audio can provide mutual feedback in interactive applications and creative tools. From Audio to Haptics: audio analysis and synthesis techniques can be leveraged to enrich the design space of vibrotactile feedback, to stimulate our tactile sense in unheard ways, in video games and digital musical instruments. From Haptics to Audio: force-feedback devices can trigger finely-tuned movements of our hands and fingers, and can be employed in tools for sound design and audio browsing, to display new dimensions and unleash our creativity. Hands-on demos will be proposed, including some from the Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) at McGill University, with a focus on opensource and openhardware tools.


Demo time with Christian and Colin !


So like I said, let's end this with a BANG ! So not one, not two, but THREE sponsored prizes for registered attendees of IAM that will will be drawing from the evenbrite registration.

So thanks to our sponsors we will be giving away :

Soundmorph's UNIVERSE BUNDLE !! 
Krotos's REFORMER PRO !! 
iZotope's RX7 !!

This is amazing, so big shout out to our sponsors Krotos, iZotope & Soundmorph

and let's not forget CIRMMT, our most amazing partner, providing us with an amazing room and help to make this all happen !!!

END OF NIGHT // DRINKS at Benelux 

As usual, we top it all off with drinks and a casual meetup at BENELUX @  245 Sherbrooke St W, Montreal, QC H2X 1X8, Canada

So if you can't make it to the talks, meet us there ;)
