Systems Information Learning Optimization (SILO)

The weekly SILO Seminar Series is made possible through the generous support of the 3M Company and its Advanced Technology Group

Seminars are usually Tuesdays at 12:30PM in the Orchard room (3280) at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Building and lunch is provided unless otherwise noted. Take the elevators behind Aldo's Cafe.

Seminars feature graduate students and post-docs presenting in half hour blocks. When we are fortunate to host external visitors, we slot the entire hour for a presentation. We also occasionally have presentations by UW professors who want to share new and exciting research ideas and open problems.
