SE Seminar Schedule

This is the SE seminar schedule. Unless otherwise indicated, the seminar is organized as a lunch meeting at 12:00 every second Wednesday in room 421. The idea is that every participant brings food to the meeting, then we eat, and usually start the talk at around 12:25. Since it's a lunch seminar, everyone can continue to eat during the talk.

To book a slot, please edit this Wiki page (every member of the CSE department should know the password) and send an email to Thorsten Berger ( with the abstract. To change the slot or swap with someone else, please also directly edit the page. It is also possible to have the seminar at alternative times. In this case, the requester is responsible for: adding the slot below, booking a room, adding the presenter/room information and presentation title below, sending a calendar invite to and, and announcing/reminding the presenter, title, and abstract via email according to the template below.
