Information for Potential Speakers

I have been coordinating the Research Seminars in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) since September 2017. Here is some useful information for potential speakers.

Time: Seminars are usually scheduled on Wednesdays (2:00PM-3:00PM) during teaching semesters. The presentation is normally 40-50 min long and followed by 5-10 min Q&A.

The date and time could be flexible. We usually have one seminar at most for one week, so please avoid those weeks that already have seminars scheduled. The scheduled seminars are listed below.

Unless otherwise stated or the speaker has other plans, the speaker is advised to arrive at the department around 11:30AM on the seminar day. We will go to have lunch and then go to the seminar room together. If you would like to me to arrange a meeting with any specific academic in our department, please let me know in advance.

Venue: The seminars are usually held in LT 2, Sir Henry Stephenson Building, University of Sheffield. The seminar room has been booked for Wednesdays (2:00PM-3:00PM) throughout the entire semesters.

Audience: Most of the audience are graduate students including MSC and PhD students. Some academic members will also come if they are interested in the topic. The topic of the talk could be any one related to automatic control or systems engineering.

Expenses: The expenses of travel and lunch will be covered by the department. Please fill out and sign this claim form, and leave all the receipts to me.

My office: Room C07c, Amy Johnson Building, Mappin Street, Sheffield, S1 3JD, UK

Administration: The seminars are usually announced one week before the seminar dates by Ms Renata Ashton.
