On Friday February 7, 2020, we organized the 4th Dutch meeting on the Study of Social and Affective Touch or in other words “Dutch Touch”. The fourth meeting took place on the houseboat of Hermen Maat and Karen Lancel in the very heart of Amsterdam.

The meeting started with a set of inspiring and diverse presentations of researchers from various disciplines including artists, scientists and designers. The talks addressed topics including affective touch in borderline, trauma, itching, and pain in Parkinson’s. Furtermore, we had presentation discussing Mediated social touch experiences, robotic touch, tactile feedback for stress management and the translation of an intimate kiss into EEG data.

 The afternoon was filled with discussions and demonstrations, allowing visitors to experience tactile stimulations first hand. The day was closed off with a critical presentation of Jan van Erp, where he shared his findings with regard to mediated and robotic touch.

All in all it was a fruitful and inspiring day and we look forward to the next meet-up!
