WIP Session

The 2016 IEEE Haptics Symposium will include presentation of 31 Work-In-Progress (WIP) Papers. Selected from 44 submissions, these two- or three-page non-archival papers were rigorously reviewed by the WIP Editorial Board, emphasizing the novelty of the research.  

Each WIP paper will be presented through a short oral "teaser" and a poster, as listed below. Details about slide and poster formatting are shown at the bottom of the Work-in-Progress Paper Presentation page
