The Stanford EE Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380) meets
on Wednesdays 4:30-5:45 throughout
the academic year. Talks are given before a live audience in
Room B03 in the basement of
the Gates Computer Science Building
on the Stanford Campus. The live talks (and the videos hosted at Stanford and on YouTube) are
open to the public.
Stanford students may enroll in EE380 to take the Colloquium
as a one unit S/NC class. Enrolled students are required to keep an
electronic notebook or journal and to write a short,
pithy comment about each of the ten lectures and a short free form evaluation
of the class in order to receive credit. Assignments are due at the end of
the quarter, on the last day of examinations.
EE380 is a video class. Live attendance is encouraged but not required.
We (the organizers) feel that watching the video is not a substitute for
being present in the classroom. Questions are encouraged.
Many past EE380 talks are available on YouTube, see the
Videos from the current Quarter are hosted by Stanford; the lecture
videos are available on YouTube a day or so following the lecture.
The videos are now in HTML5--you should be able to watch the videos
on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer. See the individual talk
abstracts for links to ancillary materials, if any.
