Mentoring Activities

The Haptics Symposium conference acknowledges the valuable role of mentoring in the personal and professional development of students and researchers in the haptics community. We are committed to providing mentorship opportunities for this year’s conference attendees. To that end, we have created the following programs.

Resume Database

We have created a database of resumes for people seeking career opportunities in academia or industry. This database can be accessed by our industry sponsors and members who have open job offerings. The database is created and shared before the conference. The conference will not keep the resumes after the completion of the conference.

Mentoring for Work-In-Progress Papers

To provide additional mentoring to authors of work in progress papers, we created a system where authors can sign up for mentors to come to their poster session and talk to them about their work and career.

Early Investigator Lunch

To provide early investigators the opportunity to network with their peers, we will have an Early Investigator Lunch for professionals in industry or academia who are within 10 years of their PhD graduation. If you are interested in attending this event, please fill out the form below:
