Haptics for inclusion

Join us at the “Haptics for Inclusion” symposium, which includes Knowledge Exchange sessions and a Discovery Den, to present your research, exchange insights, network with peers, showcase your own prototypes, engage with haptic technologies developed by others, experience multisensory artistic installations, and together explore the potential for future collaborations towards shaping a more inclusive world.

The primary goal is to create a forum where haptics researchers, accessibility researchers, potential users with lived experiences, and interested communities can come together and share latest findings, ongoing projects, and novel ideas in their respective fields and help bring about advancements in these areas. By facilitating dialogue, hands-on experiences, and interaction, we hope to encourage cross-disciplinary collaborations and inspire new research directions that incorporate multisensory technologies to improve accessibility for diverse user groups, regardless of variations in abilities.
