Systems Information Learning Optimization (SILO)

Weekly Seminar Series

Seminars are usually Wednesdays at 12:30PM in the 3rd floor teaching lab at the WID 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.
