Distinguished Seminar Series
The Distinguished Seminar Series is intended to enhance the research environment of the School of Computing by providing graduate students, faculty and staff with the opportunity to learn from renowned researchers.
Every year, the School invites four to six distinguished professionals to the School of Computing from other academic institutions and industry to give presentations on topics of interest. A diverse set of topics is essential to meeting the objectives of the series. They're typically closely aligned with the the School of Computing's research areas, but may also represent other fields of interest to the computing community.
The seminars are widely advertised and are usually attended by students and faculty from other departments as well as those in the School. Talks are directed at a general computing audience, covering either the latest advances or general area. Each seminar begins with a 45-minute lecture followed by a 15-minute Q&A period. Individual and group meetings may be arranged between the speaker and interested students and faculty members.
The current listing can always be found in the School's Calendar.
