CCSE Seminar Series

MIT CCSE runs two distinct seminar series, please see below for more information about each.

CSE Community Seminars

This series occurs weekly on Friday from 12-1 PM in 45-432 and focuses mostly on internal speakers (e.g., current graduate students, postdocs, research scientists, and faculty) with occasional informal visits by external CSE-focused researchers (ranging from graduate students to faculty). The objectives of the seminar are to:

  •  strengthen community among all people at MIT engaged in CSE;
  •  encourage interdisciplinary dissemination of CSE research across MIT;
  •  provide an opportunity for early career CSE researchers to present their work, including as practice prior to conferences, job talks, etc.

Individuals interested in presenting during the CSE Community Seminar Series should sign up here.

Distinguished Seminars in Computational Science and Engineering

This Institute-wide seminar series hosted by CCSE draws a broad audience from mathematics, science and engineering, and focuses on innovative methods and applications of computation.
