IEEE World Haptics 2017


The Work-in-Progress (WiP) session at World Haptics 2017 provides an opportunity to present innovative work in the field of haptics, which is ongoing and unpublished, in order to foster discussion between authors and conference attendees and to receive valuable feedback for early stage ideas. All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of Work-in-Progress Editors in a single blind review process. Accepted papers will be included in the conference USB proceedings. However, authors will retain the copyright since accepted WiP papers will not be published in IEEEXplore.
