CALCM Seminars

The CALCM seminar series is a weekly meeting of faculty and students with broad interests in Computer Architecture, and is open to all. The seminar is an excellent medium for CALCM students/faculty to present their recent research results and/or practice conference presentations, for students to polish their presentation skills and present external results from recent conferences, and for outside speakers to tell us about their work.

A mailing list keeps members informed of seminars and events related to CALCM. Subscribe here. Anyone with a or address can subscribe.

When / Where?

Usually every Wed 4:00-5:00 PM in CIC Panther Hollow (Fall 2014), unless otherwise noted.

If you are interested in giving a CALCM talk or have general questions, please contact the seminar organizer: Vivek Seshadri (
