Joint Colloquium

This colloquium is dedicated to hosting presentations at the intersection of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The colloquium consists of a mix of short faculty presentations presenting their latest research results, with presentations of internationally distinguished speakers who are brought to campus to interact with our department's community.

The EECS Colloquium is sponsored by a generous donation from Hewlett-Packard.

Wednesdays 4:00-5:00 PM HP Auditorium, 306 Soda Hall (unless otherwise noted)
Refreshments 3:30 - 4:00 pm, Wozniak Lounge 430-480 Soda Hall
