Information for Organizing a Seminar
As part of our responsibility for providing an interesting academic environment for our students, we should use the departmental seminars to communicate to both our students and our colleagues the sense of excitement and discovery associated with research going on in our field. These departmental seminars should be aimed at a non-specialist audience. It is desirable that they be understandable by the third year students we are trying to encourage to pursue post-graduate studies. The seminars can be given by faculty members, their visitors, and their graduate students. To help facilitate external speakers giving departmental seminars, the department will help defray part of their costs of giving the seminar. Discuss with the seminar co-ordinator for funds availability and details.
If you want to organise a seminar you can use the online request form or contact the seminar co-ordinator a few weeks in advance to arrange for a suitable time.
No later than 2 weeks before the talk, you will need to provide the following information:
|WHO||Your name and affiliation.|
|HOST||The faculty member who is sponsoring the speaker.|
|WHAT||The title of your talk.|
|WHEN||The date and time that you want to give the talk.|
|Your email address.|
|WWW||Your Web address, if any.|
|ABSTRACT||An abstract of the talk suitable for email and WWW announcements (200 word max., pref. 70-150 words).|
|SHORT ABSTRACT||A short (70 word) abstract of the talk.|
When: The seminars will be usually held from 12:05 to 12:55 on Wednesdays. If this is inconvenient for you, other times are possible as well.
Where: The seminars are usually in the Computer Science Seminar Room (Rm303.279, Maths/Physics Bldg). This is at the second floor of the Math-Physics Building on 38 Princes Street, between Albert Park and Symonds Street.
Parking: Parking around the University is next to impossible. There are some commercial
parking garages in the city that charge around $18 a day.
If you let the Seminar Coordinator know in advance they can arrange for a temporary
parking spot at one of the university parking lots.
You'll need need to supply:
- type of vehicle,
- a registration number for the vehicle, and
- the time you want the park for.
There are 8 visitor carparks at the Wyndam Street Park. Contact the carpark controllers [ext. 88988].
Other Seminar Series
In addition to the departmental seminar described above, there are also more specialized seminar series run by our research groups.
