It was a stimulating conference this year, and our lab was very busy! We contributed papers on dimensionality reduction for touch and on the information capacity of haptic working memory (respectively runner up and a finalist the Best Paper category), two work-in-progress papers, one on a wearable tactile amplification device and another on soft tactile sensor arrays (the former receiving a Best Paper Award), a paper on friction in the IEEE Transactions on Haptics session, a hands-on demonstration of our soft tactile sensors, and a workshop providing a hands-on introduction to haptic media design.
