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.
When at HMC, Colloquium is scheduled for Thursday afternoons at 4:15 p.m. in Shanahan 1430, on the HMC campus. A reception is held at 4:00 p.m. with snacks and beverages available for those who are attending the talk.
The Pomona talks are scheduled by Pomona and the location varies. Besides the information on their web page, Pomona sends out a notification a few days prior to each talk.
