Stanford University Department of Electrical Engineering
Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380) Schedule
Fall 2013-2014
Wednesdays, 4:15-5:30PM in Gates B01

Stanford EE Computer Systems Colloquium meets on Wednesdays 4:15PM-5:30PM throughout the academic year. Talks are given before a live audience in Room B01 in the basement of the Gates Computer Science Building on the Stanford Campus. The live talks (and the videos) are open to the public.

Videos of the lectures #1 and #2 and #3 as accessed from this site are broken and are being repaired. The boffo occured as we move from one video format to another. The video camera icon streams video in Windows Media Format. All of the Spring 2014 videos are available elsewhere. Links to both legacy WMF format videos and to the HTML5 format videos will be availables here soon.

Videos for the lectures are now captured in HTML5 format and can be viewed at

Videos are now uploaded to YouTube shortly after they are presented and can be viewed there. The URLS for the YouTube versions of the first two talks are:

Stephan Wolfram on The Design and Implications of the Wolfram Language
Stan Honey on Augmented Reality at the America's Cup. [CORRECTED URL]
Paul Borrill on Insights into the Nature of Time
