Speaker Schedule

Fall 2023 term meetings will be Mondays at 2:00 PM, held remotely or hybrid.

The rotation is managed by the Assistant Vice Speaker Rotator, which is currently Justin. Ask them if you need to speak on a different date, or want to schedule a practice talk (see below). The meeting is scheduled each term by the Scheduler of the Meeting, which is currently Rasoul.

Do not modify the above table directly -- just email Justin, since only they know everyone's constraints, and need to track modifications to make sure they're persistent.

See the Speaker Archives Lock for past speakers. Speakers must now send a ~3 sentence summary to Hossam immediately after their talk (and, at the speaker's discretion, any slides).

If you don't see your name on the right list, let Justin know.

Giving a CrySP Talk

The goal of these talks is to stay informed of what everyone in the lab is working on and interested in. Typically, speakers present something they're working on or recently finished, but papers you found interesting, background into a subject not all CrySP members would know, or open problems you'd like to see someone work on are all good options as well. See the Speaker Archives Lock for some examples.

The talks are intended to be relatively informal, and there are no strict rules for what they should look like, but as a guideline you should aim for 20-25 minutes to allow time for announcements, setup, and questions.

For slides, a PDF file you can upload to BBB is preferred, since it saves bandwidth and avoids technical difficulties with getting screen sharing working (as a small bonus, it also makes the slides render with higher quality). If you want slide animations, you can use screen sharing, but you should have PDF slides ready as a backup (this is also a good idea for giving presentations in general). PDF uploads will not work for live demos, of course; if you want a backup for those, make slides with screenshots or photos of what the live demo should look like.

Rescheduling a Talk

You can also book practice talks on particular dates with the Assistant Vice Speaker Rotator (currently Justin), either for one speaker slot or the whole meeting (keep in mind whether you would like time for feedback during the meeting). This will replace your normal CrySP talk for the term, if any.

Let the Assistant Vice Speaker Rotator know as soon as possible if you can't speak this term or on your scheduled date. If you want to cancel with less than a week before your talk is scheduled, and it's not an emergency, please ask a few CrySP members if they would be willing to fill in first. If you find someone willing, let the Assistant Vice Speaker Rotator know who, otherwise, let them know who you asked so nobody gets asked twice.

In general, the schedule fluctuates a lot, and the Assistant Vice Speaker Rotator will only let you know if your scheduled speaking date moves if it moves to a date less than two weeks away.

Requested Topics

The following topics have been requested by one or more CrySP members. If you have expertise in the topic, please consider presenting it during your next talk! If there is something you would like to learn more about, feel free to add it to the list (or ask Justin to).
