The department of Computer Science hosts a number of lectures and seminars throughout the semester, bringing in prominent researchers from universities around the country. These lectures are open to everyone.
We have both a regular Lecture Series and a Distinguished Lecture Series, which are typically held on Tuesday or Thursday mornings from 10:45 - 12:00 in Hackerman Hall Rm B17.
The Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes these eminent thinkers and innovators from academia and industry to the Homewood Campus. We invite you to hear about their cutting-edge research and to be inspired by how computer science is changing the world.
All lectures will be held in Hackerman Hall Rm B17.
