The UBC Department of Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series brings leading researchers, from a variety of research areas, to UBC enabling an exchange of ideas between the speakers, students, faculty and the public on the latest advances in those areas. The seminars are hosted by the Department of Computer Science here at the Point Grey campus of the University of British Columbia. Each speaker is invited and funded by the research group in the corresponding area, ensuring that the individual is well known by their peers and that their work is representative of the forefront of their field.
This colloquim series is sponsored by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS). All talks are free of charge and open to everyone: any member of the university community or general public.
Some of these lectures have been posted on YouTube.
DLS events are always scheduled for:
3:30 - 4:50 pm
at Hugh Dempster Pavilion (DMP) Rm 110
6245 Agronomy Rd, UBC Pt. Grey Campus
