General Info

The Student Seminar Series is an informal seminar for SCS graduate students to communicate ideas. Each meeting starts at noon and lasts 1 hour. Lunch is provided by the Computer Science Department (thanks to Debbie Cavlovich!). At each meeting, a different student speaker will give an informal, 40-minute talk about his/her research, followed by questions/suggestions/brainstorming. We try to attract people with a diverse set of interests, and encourage speakers to present at a very general, accessible level.

So why are we doing this and why take part? In the best case scenario, this will lead to some interesting cross-disciplinary work among people in different fields and people may get some new ideas about their research. In the worst case scenario, a few people will practice their public speaking and the rest get together for a free lunch.


Steps for Scheduling Talks

To schedule a talk, pick up a free slot and send your (a) name, (b) department, (c) talk title, (d) talk abstract, and (e) a link to your home page to sss@cs at least TWO WEEKS before your talk.

Each speaker may schedule at most 3 talks per semester.

For SCS students willing to give presentations counting toward fulfilling their speaking skills requirement, SSS is an ideal forum to do so. For CSD students, these are roughly 3 steps:

  1. Send you talk details as listed above to SSS at least THREE WEEKS before the talk.
  2. After you are confirmed with your SSS slot, go to Speakers Club Calendar and add your talk to it.
  3. On the day of your talk, bring Speakers Club Evaluation Forms for your evaluators to use.

Each talk starts at noon and lasts 1 hour. The room is booked from 11:30am (30 mins before the talk) to 1:30pm (30 mins after the talk). Students outside of CSD will need to check with their respective departments regarding the procedure. As another example, ISRI students fulfill their speaking requirements by attending a semesterly Software Research Seminar and giving X number of presentations per school year. If you have experience with your department that might help others in your department, please feel free to contribute your knowledge by emailing us. Thank you!
