Seminars and meetings
In addition to the departmental Wednesday talks, several local research groups also organize seminar series and weekly discussion groups. Talks in these are often targeted at a more specialist audience, but are also open to the general public.
An increasing number of the presentations given at these meetings is announced via the talks.cam website:
The “Wednesday talks” are the department's main seminar series. These talks take place on most Wednesdays during term, in Lecture Theatre 1 of the William Gates Building. They start at 14:15 and last about 45–60 min.
The talks are held by both distinguished external speakers as well as members of the department. They are targeted at anyone with a background in computing, in particular also students. Topics span the full range of computer science and beyond.
We would like to thank Kodak Research for a gift to support some of our travel costs.
For further information about the Wednesday seminar series contact Stephen Clark.

From 2007 on, Wednesday seminars have been recorded digitally and are available online. VHS video tapes of earlier Wednesday talks (and a TV to watch them) are available in our library. We ask speakers to fill out and sign a consent form before any recording, to clarify how widely we can make each recording available.
