Our paper is accepted for IEEE World Haptics 2021 Conference and got nominated for the Best Paper Award

Our paper entitled "Data-driven Haptic Modeling of Plastic Flow Via Inverse Reinforcement Learning" was nominated upon the high review scores for the best paper award. Unfortunately, we could not win the prize this time. The IEEE World 2021 was originally scheduled to be held in Montreal, Canada. But eventually, the conference took place online due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

I would like to thank my Ph.D. adviser Seokhee Jeon for his support and collaboration. I would also like to express my appreciation to the conference organizers for setting up a wonderful virtual venue.

We are proud to announce that our paper received the Best Full Paper Award at 25th ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST) 2019

Our paper entitled "Measurement-based Hyper-elastic Material Identification and Real-time FEM Simulation for Haptic Rendering" initially nominated upon the high review scores and then got awarded at the conference banquet on the ship cruising in the Sydney Harbour. Such a wonderful place to receive the best paper award. The paper also got invited and presented as a poster at SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 held in Brisbane, Australia.

I would like to thank my adviser Seokhee Jeon and collaborators from "Perception & Computer Vision Lab.": Ibragim Atadjanov and Seungkyu Lee, for the fruitful collaboration.

Our project received the first place in Automotive Student Challenge at Asia Haptics 2018

The student challenge was sponsored by The Hyundai Motor Group and devoted to conceiving innovative haptics solutions for the next generation vehicles. The competition took a place in two steps. First, eight international teams with outstanding project proposals got selected out of numerous submissions. These teams were provided the $1500 grant for implementing their ideas within five months period. To compete for the grand prize, the teams submitted two progress reports, reported final results in an oral presentation at the conference, and demonstrated the working prototype at the conference exhibition. I am pleased to announce that our team received the first place and got the $5000 prize.

I would like to thank my adviser Seokhee Jeon and my friend Ruslan Rakhmatov for the wonderful collaboration on this project.

We won the first place in Automotive Student Challenge at Korea Haptics Community (KHC) 2017

The challenge took a place in the annual workshop organized by the haptics community in Korea. The competition was divided into two steps. First, participants submitted their project proposals in a given format. Then, the competition committee selected the best 10 teams out of 102 submissions. The finalists orally presented their projects to workshop attendees, where our project received the grand prize, 2,000,000 Won (approx. $2000).

I would like to thank my adviser Seokhee Jeon for the support and collaboration.
