Stanford University Networking Seminar

Stanford's NetSeminar is a biweekly seminar covering networking-related topics. Speakers come from academia and industry and the talks are open to the public. When possible, talks will be recorded and posted online. We typically start at 12:15pm (lunch at 11:45am) at Gates Bld — Room 104, unless otherwise mentioned.

NetSeminar is run by graduate students, and it is generously supported by the Stanford Computer Forum.
