Colloquia are normally (but not always, so check the dates and locations carefully!) Thursday afternoon at 4:15 p.m. either in Edmunds 114, Seaver North Auditorium, or the Rose Hills Theater. Harvey Mudd CS Colloquia are also offered at the same time on Thursdays. Their outside speakers generally come on weeks that do not coincide with our colloquia. We strongly urge everyone to attend the HMC CS Colloquia on weeks that we do not have them.

Majors are automatically sent e-mail notifications of colloquia speakers and topics. Others may sign up to be on our mailing list.

Colloquium schedules from previous years: 2009-2010, 2008-2009, 2007-2008, 2006-2007
