Telepresence technologies can transport one’s sense, skills and presence to any place in an instant. These technologies are experiencing numerous advances and breakthroughs and made meaningful impacts upon education, healthcare, safety, and beyond. The IEEE Future Directions Telepresence Initiative was launched in 2021 with the aim to catalyze and streamline these developments; it is currently preparing a telepresence roadmap to help guide the research community and communicate the challenges to stakeholders in industry and government. This paper shares motivating example applications and presents the current framework of the roadmap. This framework integrates three pillars or points of view: the task perspective, the system perspective, and the human perspective. We seek active participation of telepresence experts in the workshop to ensure a complete and inclusive roadmap.
