SCS Colloquium Series

The SCS Colloquium Series hosts lectures aimed at a broad Computer Science audience of graduate students, faculty, and anyone interested in a great talk by our leading researchers.  The goal is to foster discussion and collaboration around active topics of research in the School.  If you are interested in giving a colloquium, or know someone who might be (local or visitor), please contact Mark Giesbrecht.
