Research Colloquium

The ECE colloquium in the spring quarter will be held virtually, with talks presented on Zoom at the scheduled time. The first talk will be held on Tuesday, April 7. Please check back for further details.

Please join the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department for the 2019-20 Research Colloquium Series on Tuesday mornings, featuring experts who discuss current issues in the electrical & computer engineering field. Talks are open to both students and the public.  Live streaming is available for most talks.

EE 500C/491 students

Please note that the Colloquium does not meet every week. Credit for EE 500C / EE 491 is attendance based. You must attend the majority of Colloquium talks to obtain credit (1 credit for the quarter) — the exact number will be announced when the speakers are announced.

All students must sign the sign-in sheet provided at the back of the lecture theater between 10:20am and 10:40am to verify your attendance. At 10:40am, the sign-up sheets are removed. If you are not signed in at the beginning of the lecture, you will be considered absent. There are no exceptions to this policy. Credit is attendance based. All students must sign the sign-up sheet provided in the lecture theater to verify attendance (no exceptions).
