17-791 Software Research Seminar SSSG

The Software Research Seminar meets every Monday 3:30-5pm in Wean 5324 to discuss research in progress and review recent literature in software engineering research. The purpose, beyond exposure to a broad range of technical ideas, is to develop a critical view of the scientific process and literature of software engineering research.

ISR Lunch and Learn Series

Do you ever write code? For research? For class? Just occasionally? Who doesn't!
Would you like to learn how to write code faster? With fewer bugs? That's more easily maintained, so you spend less time fussing over the details, and more time getting your *real* work done? We are hosting a weekly series of "lunch and learn" events. Each Friday, we will host video lessons in a series covering a variety of software development best practices. Lunch will be provided, but only if you RSVP! (Open only to ISR community members and their invited colleagues)

Current Topics in Privacy Seminar

The Current Topics in Privacy Seminar is a three-credit course (08-602) taught in the Fall and Spring semesters. Members of the university community are invited to participate in the seminar even if they are not enrolled in the course. In this seminar course students will discuss recent papers and current public policy issues related to privacy. Privacy professionals from industry, government, and non-profits will deliver several guest lectures each semester.
