I’m anticipating a good lecture series

by theaudioprof on January 20, 2011

For a long time my colleague David Waterman has been coordinating and hosting the Department of Telecommunications’ weekly seminar series, which we call a variety of things:  T600, The Brown Bag, The Colloquium Series, etc.

But, this spring David is on sabbatical (at Oxford!) and so I volunteered to step into those mighty big shoes.

And, although it has been more work than I expected it to be…hey, what isn’t more work than I expect it to be…the schedule for the semester is mostly finalized now and I’m looking forward to it.

The Brown Bag happens every Friday at 12:30 in RTV 226.  And, it’s called “the brown bag” because you can bring your lunch!

Here’s the schedule:
