The UBC Computer Science Department is proud to be re-introducing our Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS).
This is the first FULL series since before the pandemic, and features esteemed scholars and industry leaders speaking about the latest and greatest computer science topics. Usually attended by hundreds, the talks are more than informative and entertaining, they are inspiring and provide a chance to network, learn, and connect.
All four of the lectures will be held on campus in the Fred Kaiser Building (2332 Main Mall), Room 2020/2030, starting at 3:30 and ending at 4:50 p.m.
