Computer science students may attend seminars covering topics including eliminating bugs in code, optimizing file systems, understanding natural language, the use of wearable sensors, pedagogy, refining library and compiler technology for specific uses, and producing large software projects. A few institutions that offer computer science seminars include Texas A&M University, Cornell University and Carnegie Mellon University.
Texas A&M University computer science seminar topics delve into specific areas of the field. As of 2015, these topics include Dr. Kathleen Fisher's presentation detailing the use of formal methods to eliminate exploitable bugs and Dr. Roozbeh Jafari's presentation on the use of wearable sensors for multi-sensor data-driven synchronization. Texas A&M seminars also include mandatory orientation meetings for new graduate students.
Cornell University arranges seminar offerings by the general subject in the field of computer science. Examples of seminars include an artificial intelligence seminar, a theory seminar, a database seminar and a computer graphics seminar.
Carnegie Mellon University offers seminars organized by area of the field covered or by department producing the event. Examples include a computer music research seminar, a department of statistics seminar, the Lane Center computational biology seminars, a parallel thinking seminar series, a robotics seminar, and the Vision and Autonomous Systems Center seminar.
