Colloquium Series

The Department of Computer Science benefits greatly from researchers who take the time to come to UNCG and talk about their research with our faculty and students. If you are a researcher and are interested in visiting our campus and speaking about your work, please contact the department and ask to be put in contact with our colloquium coordinator.
