Seminar Series

Select Fridays from 2-3 p.m. during the academic year, the department organizes a Friday seminar, for which it typically brings in outside speakers. All seminars are open to anyone who wants to attend. The seminars are an excellent opportunity to be inspired by what others are doing, learn about the state of the art and interact with influential researchers from across the world.

For the Fall 2021 quarter, in-person attendance is encouraged for UCI students, faculty, researchers, and staff. The seminars will also be streamed live on Zoom for the public using Meeting ID 960 8227 0307.
