Fall and Winter quarters: Thursday, 12:15-1:45 in Gates 104

Spring quarter (posing as CS548): Wednesday, 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm, McCullough 150


Please join us this spring quarter (starting March 29) for more great talks in the CS 548 Distributed Systems Seminar. See the schedule below.

Our fall and winter quarters were generously sponsorsed by Professors Mary Baker, Nick Bambos, David Cheriton, and Fouad Tobagi. We thank you!

What is it?

The goal of the Stanford Networking Seminar is to

  • Build a year-round forum for students and researchers to learn about current trends and new results in networking research.
  • Bring together Stanford networking researchers with disparate interests.
  • Provide a forum for networking researchers with diverse perspectives to collectively discuss current networking research.
It features outstanding networking researchers from academia and industry talking about topics that range from network and communications protocols to distributed system applications and network security.

In the fall and winter quarters the seminar takes place on Thursdays in Gates 104. Free lunch (but no drinks) is offered from 12:15-12:45 followed by a presentation until no later than 1:15. The remainder of the time is reserved for discussion. Currently it is not possible to take this seminar for credit in the fall and winter quarters.

In the spring quarter, this seminar continues as CS 548, the Distributed Systems Seminar, which is offered for credit and is broadcast. Due to the nature of the room, we are not allowed to offer food for this seminar.

Recommended prerequisites for both versions of this seminar are CS244a, CS244b.
