Attending an academic conference can facilitate the understanding of research fundamentals (finding a problem, addressing a question through hypothesis, experiment design, writing and presenting the results). SFC TOUCH Lab encourages students to give a presentation at international academic conferences including Japan domestic conferences.
研究会合宿 / Lab Bootcamp
Lab Bootcamp is organized by Lab Student Assistants (SAs) and faculty in each semester. Lab camp aims at getting used to haptics study through fast prototyping and hypothesis-driven research design.
SFC TOUCH LAB Review is held in each semester, in order to polish and crystalize very fresh ideas into plausible but important addressed problem to research. In the review occasion, we will host people from outside lab for encouraging to exchange ideas with people from different background.
