The computer science colloquium is a public gathering where various computer science topics are presented, including internal research projects, external projects, and student presentations. All computer science majors must be enrolled in colloquium (CSCI 195) during their junior and senior years. Anyone else who is interested in attending is also welcome.

Colloquium is taught jointly with the Pomona College Computer Science Department. Each semester the talks are split between HMC and Pomona and those HMC students registered for Colloquium are expect to make all the talks.

Time and Location

When at HMC, Colloquium is scheduled for Thursday afternoons at 4:15 p.m. in Galileo Hall, on the HMC campus. A reception is held in Hixon Court at 4:00 p.m. with snacks and beverages available for those who are attending the talk.
