Stanford University Department of Electrical Engineering
Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380) Schedule
Winter 2011-2012
Wednesdays, 4:15-5:30PM in Skilling Auditorium

Stanford EE Computer Systems Colloquium meets on Wednesdays 4:15PM-5:30PM throughout the academic year. Talks are given before a live audience in Skilling Auditorium on the Stanford Campus. The live talks (and the videos) are open to the public.

The Colloquium may also be viewed live on the web (click the "join the live presentation" link), or it may be viewed on demand over the web an hour or so (sometimes longer) after the lecture completes (click the video button on the schedule).

Colloquium talks are also distributed on iTunes and YouTube The release schedule to these channels is highly variable since it depends upon how much time SCPD staff has available outside of critical class-related work.

The Colloquium (EE380) is offered as a one unit class, with a S/NC. To receive credit in the Colloquium (assuming you are an enrolled student), select ten lectures, view each of the lectures over the web by clicking on the video camera icon, then submit a short commentary about the lecture by clicking on the thumbs-up thumbs-down icons, completing the web form, and submitting it.

After you've viewed all ten lectures, fill out a class evaluation form (look for the blinking red arrow on the schedule page). The final deadline for assignments is the last day of finals for the quarter.

If you enjoy the EE380 Colloquium you may want to attend one of the other CS or EE seminars.
  1. CS545, the Stanford Info Seminar, which meets Fridays 4:15-5:15pm in the Gates Room B12.
  2. CS547, the Human-Computer Interaction Seminar (Seminar on People, Computers, and Design), which meets Fridays 12:50-2:05PM in Gates Room B01.
  3. The Program on Liberation Technology is part of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford. They frequently have lectures of interest to Computer Scientists and Engineers. The Seminar meets Thursdays 4:30-6:00PM in the Math Building 380, Room 380Y on the lower level.
