Speaker Series

Illinois Computer Science Speaker Series

The Illinois Computer Science Speaker Series brings prominent leaders and experts to campus to share their ideas and promote conversations about essential challenges and topics in the discipline.

Our Speaker Series has three named lectures. The Donald B. Gillies Memorial Lecture honors the memory of a renowned Computer Science faculty member. The Robert Mueller-Thuns Lecture honors the memory of a graduate who died at a young age but who always strove for excellence. Finally, the Utpal Banerjee Distinguished Lecture Series in High-Performance Computing honors a distinguished alumnus who made outstanding contributions to HPC.

Recordings

Links to our Speaker Series recordings are provided as promptly as possible at the explicit discretion of the speaker. They are available on Media Space to the public, anyone with an Illinois NetID or Computer Science faculty.
