A research seminar is a weekly one-hour meeting discussing the research being done in a department research lab, as well as reading journal papers in that area. A subset of the research labs may run these seminars, typically only in fall and spring semesters.
Advanced undergraduates involved in research may participate in a research seminar, once given permission by the director of the lab. These students may also apply for 1 credit hour of CS 496: Research Seminar (application below). CS 496 may be taken up to three times, for a total of 3 credit hours.
