An introductory course for haptics study is provided for an initial four weeks. After then, students address a project basis study and prototyping. Mid-term and final presentations are a mandatory requirement for students. Guests from outside campus give their invited talks occasionally.
The additional seminar is hosted mainly by students. An on-demand seminar on research methodology or project research meeting is typically held once in two weeks. Currently, sub seminars are open for math and statistics.
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.
SFC TOUCH LAB Review is held each semester, in order to polish and crystalize very fresh ideas into the plausible but important addressed problems to research. On the review occasion, we will host people from outside the lab for encouraging them to exchange ideas with people from different backgrounds.
