Preview Videos (New for 2022; Optional, but strongly encouraged)

Authors of accepted papers are invited to submit an optional 30-second preview video summarizing their contribution. The video will significantly increase the visibility of the research to the haptics community and beyond. The 30-second preview videos will be disseminated via social media, including the IEEE Haptics Symposium YouTube channel, and may be used to promote the conference.

The preview video deadline is March 1, 2022 March 8, 2022.

Please refer to the “Oral Presentation Video Instructions.” The length of the preview video should not exceed 30 seconds.

Video Accessibility

Providing alternative means of accessing information is valuable for people with sensory impairments and also enables engagement in a variety of contexts (e.g., if the video is muted). We request that authors utilize both written text and recorded narration to explain their videos. To support meeting participants with visual impairments, please describe all figures and images with sufficient detail.
