The Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium is the regular, weekly colloquium of the Computer Systems Laboratory. At each session, a guest lecturer examines some topic on current research and developments in computer systems. Speakers are drawn from industry, government, research, and educational institutions around the world. The topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications of all sorts, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas.
