Oral Presentations

Forty-one Haptics Symposium papers and extended abstracts will be orally presented in a single track of sessions. A preliminary version of the full oral presentation schedule is shown below. Please note that exact session times and presentation order may be adjusted.

Each session covers a unified theme and will be chaired by a pair of experienced haptics researchers. Long oral presentations are 15 minutes, and short oral presentations are 10 minutes, including time for questions from the audience; see the presenting page for more details.

Papers marked by  are candidates for the best paper award. If the first author is a student and will present, the paper will also considered for the best student paper award, as detailed on the awards page.

Please contact the Publications Chair, kuchenbe [at] seas [dot] upenn [dot] edu (subject: Preliminary%20Oral%20Presentation%20Schedule) (Professor Katherine Kuchenbecker), if you notice any errors in this listing, such as the omission of a paper that was selected for oral presentation, or if the presenting author has an unavoidable conflict with the tentatively assigned time.
