Stanford University Computer Systems Laboratory
EE380 Colloquium Schedule
Fall 2003-2004

Welcome to the Stanford COMPUTER SYSTEMS LABORATORY COLLOQUIUM home page. The Colloquium presents a series of ten lectures each academic quarter. The content is free ranging, covering wide range of topics related to computer systems. Everyone, enrolled or not, is welcome to attend. The Colloquium may be taken as a class (1 unit, S/NC). Enrolled students must write a short paragraph commentary on each lecture and complete a class evaluation form. (Details) Even though the class is taped, televised, and available on the web, students are requested to attend lectures in person because its a better experience for everyone. Speakers need a live audience; remote attendees miss out as they have no opportunity to interact with speakers. Occasionally speakers choose to present material that cannot broadcast or webcast, usually because of copyright restrictions. In that case, portions of the video lecture may be elided or the entire video lecture replaced with a lecture from our archives.
Past Colloquia can be viewed by clicking here or using the link on the left index bar.
