Please join the Zoom webinar here: The link is the same for all talks.

Non-Stanford Audience Members
Due to COVID-19 Safety precautions, we can only allow Stanford affiliates to join the audience in person in Gates B3 (Basement of the Gates Computer Science building). Non-Stanford audience members are welcome to join the seminar talks on Zoom.

Disability Accomodations
If you need a disability-related accommodation, please contact the Diversity & Access office at and 650-725-0326. The office requests that you contact them by one week in advance of the event.

Video Recordings
Videos are on YouTube externally and the CS 547 Canvas site internally. Older videos are on iTunesU and our old YouTube channel.

CS547 Students
If enrolled Stanford students wish to attend the seminar regularly, they can receive one unit of credit by enrolling in CS 547. We expect students to attend seminar in person at 11:30am - 12:30pm PT Fridays, and to watch all seminars. Up to 2 can be watched non-live via the recording, which can be found on Canvas via Panopto. In this case, you will also be required to write a one-paragraph summary of the talk. If you are unable to attend in person because of health concerns, complete this form and we will reach out to arrange remote attendance. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are concerned about a recent potential exposure before a given lecture, email to arrange for remote attendance. SCPD students do not need to watch seminars live. If circumstances result in you missing more than two live seminars, you can still earn credit by watching two seminars for each additional one that you missed: (1) the original seminar that you missed, recorded; and (2) one live HCI Group seminar - either an HCI Seminar lecture or HCI Lunch in a future quarter. Email to report on your makeup seminar, instead of using the attendance form.

All enrolled students must submit the weekly attendance form on Canvas.

We require live attendance because this helps establish a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our invited speakers. If you enroll late, any lectures you missed will count against the two that you get to watch non-live. Course conflicts do not excuse absence—enrolling in the class is a commitment to attend it. Likewise, job interviews and other schedule conflicts under the student's control are not excused absences: we provide the two non-live seminars for these purposes. Travel for athletic competitions is an excused absence, since it is not under the student's control. For serious illness, death in the family, or other issues out of the student's control, contact the course staff.

We videotape the seminar and post the videos to YouTube, to record the history of HCI as it unfolds and to support wide dissemination of cutting edge HCI work. Video cameras located in the back of the room (or the Zoom cameras while remote) will capture the presentations. When you attend the seminar in person, please note: while the cameras are positioned with the intention of recording only the instructor, occasionally a part of your image might be incidentally captured. If you attend on Zoom, your video and voice may also be captured. Before the video is made public, editors will review the recordings and blur student images. Occasionally, your voice might also be incidentally captured. If you have questions, please contact a member of the teaching team.
