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.

When / Where?

Usually every Tuesday 4:30-5:30 PM in Hamerschlag Hall D-210, unless otherwise noted.

If you are interested in giving a CALCM talk or have general questions, please contact the seminar organizer: Gabriel Weisz.

*A mailing list keeps members informed of seminars and events related to CALCM. Subscribe here using a cmu.edu or pitt.edu suffix email address.
